Industrial disease claims are brought for injuries and conditions caused by your past or present working environment. At Fosters we understand the impact industrial diseases can have on your day-to-day life and your future, and our experienced team are able to advise and guide you through every aspect of your claim, and to support you in your case against the employer.
Industrial diseases differ from accidents at work, because exposure to the cause of the illness may have occurred some time ago, more than one employer (including former employers) may be liable, and the symptoms can take a long time to show.
We have acted in relation to a variety of diseases and conditions, including:
- Hand, Arm, Vibration Syndrome (HAVS);
- Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL);
- Vibration White Finger.
At Fosters you will receive all the advice you need to ensure you are prepared not only for your case, but the impact beyond. That is why we have become the solicitors of choice for so many clients who rely on our depth of expertise and discretion.
How we can help
We want to work with you to achieve the best possible outcome for your claim.
We understand you will want to know how we can assist, so we offer a free of charge no obligation first meeting or chat, which we follow up with a full letter of advice. If you are in any doubt as to whether you have a claim, please do contact us, again completely without obligation.
We are also able to discuss how you can cover the cost of a claim, including through a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement.
