Industrial Disease Compensation Claims Solicitors

HTV for HJA WebsiteEmployees should be protected at work – their employers have a responsibility to do so. When that responsibility falls short and is inadequate, that’s when industrial disease, illness and injury occurs.

At Hodge Jones & Allen we offer advice on all types of industrial diseases and illnesses, including mesothelioma, asbestos related lung cancer and dermatitis.

If you have been diagnosed with a lung disease you are very likely to already be under the care of a consultant and specialist nurse. To gain the right legal advice, please speak to our Industrial Disease & Illnesses team, led by Isobel Lovett.

We will help you to get answers and find out who is responsible. At a hugely difficult time, for you and your family, let us help you find a way forward and gain the compensation you deserve.
