Complexity of industrial disease claims

Industrial Illness claims are complex in the sense that the resulting illness may happen years after the exposure to the causal substance or circumstance. Expert evidence will need to be sourced in order to make this connection so it is important that you use a specialist personal injury solicitor to help you.

We can usually tell you at the outset if you have potential grounds for a compensation claim.
