If you suffer from a disease which you have developed as a result of your work, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Your employers have a duty to provide you with a safe place to work. If they expose you to excessive noise or to dangerous substances like asbestos, chemicals and dust, they may be liable for your injuries.

Benefits we bring to you

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a condition as a result of their employment duties or place of work, our specialist personal injury lawyers are here to help you. Our team of highly experienced lawyers will provide clear advice to you on your prospects of successfully recovering compensation, and on the likely amount of that compensation. We have a 99% success rate so you're in a safe pair of hands. Our personal injury solicitors are highly experience, and are ranked in Legal 500, an independent directory of recommended lawyers.

Our workplace injury and disease solicitors are experienced at handling all types of industrial disease cases. We will be with you every step of the way, ensuring you are kept up to date about what is happening with your claim and that you know what to expect.

How much is your claim worth? We maximise the compensation payable to our clients. We will provide you with an accurate valuation of your claim and will fight on your behalf to negotiate the best possible deal for you. Our track record on this is proven as we recently recovered the highest ever compensation amount by a Scottish Jury in a fatal case. We have a proven track record of recovering record breaking amounts for our clients.

Use our compensation calculator for an introductory guide to the financial value of claims, depending on the seriousness of the injury and the length of time you have had the symptoms.

We have a variety of funding options available, depending on your individual circumstances. The most popular is our 'no win no fee' arrangement, where you do not pay for our services unless we successfully recover compensation for you.
