Disease claims represent a major concern for businesses and insurers. We have a highly experienced and dedicated team which provides advice, guidance and training on all aspects of such 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 have a proven track record of successful results with a high success rate for cases taken to trial, together with securing a significant number of discontinuances.

  • Asbestos related disease
  • Asthma/upper respiratory tract disorders
  • Cumulative back injuries

  • Hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS)
