• Brachers has a dedicated, experienced team who specialise in complex industrial disease claims, particularly mesothelioma claims and other asbestos disease claims. We have a proven track record of successful compensation claims for our clients and as we operate on a no win, no fee basis, we minimise any financial risk and take the worry out of making a claim.

    You, or a family member may have been diagnosed with a condition such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis or diffuse pleural thickening and have no understanding of whether this was the result of something you came in contact with during the course of a previous employment. In the UK, more than 5,000 people a year die from mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer, even though widespread use of new asbestos ceased by the early 1980s. In addition, many are still being diagnosed with non-fatal asbestos-related diseases which in addition to asbestosis include diffuse pleural thickening. This is because these diseases do not usually develop until 30 or 50 years after the exposure. Our lawyers are experts in asbestos investigations, to help you work out if your diagnosis could be the result of asbestos contact, even from many decades earlier.

    We not only deal with asbestos-related claims, we can also deal with many other industrial disease claims including occupational asthma, respiratory and lung disease, Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) and Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), and dermatitis claims.

    Recognition of our expertise

    We are accredited by the Association of Personal Injuries Lawyers (APIL) and have their only accredited occupational and asbestos disease specialist in the region, so you can be confident you are in the hands of a team you can trust. Our team is also ranked as a leading firm in the legal directory The Legal 500 and we support the work of Mesothelioma UK.

    We have many years of experience of making successful claims for our clients, but don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at our case studies and client stories highlighted below to see how we have helped our claims receive the compensation they have deserved.
