Making a Claim
If you think you may be suffering from a work related illness then you should seek medical advice from your GP or hospital doctor.

If your doctor confirms that there may be an occupational cause for your condition then you need to take legal advice as soon as possible as time limits apply.

We can offer you friendly expert advice as to whether you can claim compensation from your current or former employer and we will pursue your claim on a “no win no fee basis.”

You will receive 100% of any compensation awarded without any hidden costs and you can be confident that we will seek to obtain the maximum sum available to you.
