Thankfully the number of claims related to poor working conditions have decreased over the past ten years due to improved Health and Safety regulations. However, when workers, or their family members acquire an industrial related illness as a result of poor employment conditions, the consequences can often be devastating and life-changing.
Here at Hodgkinsons our specialist team are dedicated to obtaining compensation for victims of industrial related illnesses. We understand the effect such illnesses can have on a individual’s everyday life which is why we approach every case in an efficient and effective manner whilst treating our Clients with the dignity, respect and compassion they deserve.
It is our aim to minimise the stress and trauma that industrial related illnesses can cause to an individual by seeking the justice they deserve. Our Solicitors strive to complete the course of action as quickly as the process and circumstances allow whilst providing you with the best treatment and rehabilitation.
All employers have a responsibility to protect your health and safety and to ensure that steps are taken to minimise the risk of you suffering from such conditions.
