Occupational disease claims represent a major concern for businesses and insurers. Our team of expert occupational disease solicitors provides advice, guidance and training on all aspects of such claims.
Tailored disease claims service from leading legal experts
We deliver a service which is built on a real understanding of our clients’ requirements. This is achieved through the length and depth of our insurer relationships and working in partnership with service providers, brokers and key customers.
Through our relationships, we have been able to develop established contacts and access to lay and/or expert evidence as well as established insurance histories. All of this assists early evaluation and resolution or evidence gathering to defend cases as appropriate.
A strategic approach to handing disease claims
Our team uses its procedural, liability and evidential expertise to secure tactical advantages and favourable outcomes, delivering a professional and technically excellent service throughout.
We adopt a strategic claims approach with detailed analysis of potentially complex issues such as exposure, date of knowledge, limitation, apportionment and policy coverage.
