Digby Brown has many years of experience in working for victims of industrial diseases.
We handle a wide range of industrial disease cases from Asbestos disease to Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome, Hazardous substances and Industrial Deafness and tinnitus.
We pride ourselves on being experts in this field, particularly in asbestos-related conditions, where we recently won a landmark ruling for a pleural plaques compensation claim.
Industrial diseases can take years to manifest and the cases can be difficult to prove. It can often be difficult to trace insurer to make payments, but Digby Brown's industrial disease solicitors have the expertise and experience to assess your case, advise you on the best way forward and give you the very best chance of success possible.
Wherever possible, our industrial disease solicitors like to follow up the initial discussion by arranging a face to face meeting with you, either in our office, hospital or we are happy to come to your home if this is most convenient.
At this first meeting we will explain exactly what steps we will be taking and the process involved in seeking financial compensation. We will also let you know what you can do to help us. We will fully explain how we fund the case through our no win no fee compensate funding scheme.
In Scotland, the three year period for an industrial disease claim will start to run from the date when a person should have been aware that their symptoms were related to their employment.
The three year period may well start to run prior to any medical diagnosis by a doctor.
For this reason, if you believe that you may have a condition which could have been caused by your working conditions, it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.
Call us on 0333 200 5925, or fill in our brief enquiry form and someone will contact you to discuss your particular circumstances.
