How to claim compensation for an industrial disease?
First, we need to know some basic details about your condition or disease (such as when, where and how it started) and the extent of injuries you have suffered. We will also ask you about medical treatment you have already received.
One of our solicitors specialising in industrial diseases will review your case based on the details received from you, in order to assess how successful your claim is likely to be.
If you require further medical treatment and/or rehabilitation, it is vital to contact a solicitor as soon as possible, so that the best possible care (e.g. private surgery or rehabilitation) could be arranged at the earliest opportunity.
