Industrial Diseases

We live in an area which has a long and distinguished tradition of heavy industry. Teesside was once the engine room of the British economy where the majority of the population worked in either the steel, shipbuilding or industrial chemicals and processes industries.

Unfortunately, many people working in those industries suffered serious industrial disease as a result of their exposure to noise, dust and particularly asbestos. This was not supposed to be part of their remuneration package!

If you have been exposed to asbestos, and have suffered as a result, then you are likely to be entitled to compensation. Asbestos affects different people in different ways over different timescales. The most obvious diseases caused are asbestosis, lung cancer and Mesothelioma. If you have suffered any of these conditions following exposure to asbestos then you are entitled to compensation.

At Atha & Co we have many years of experience in dealing with such claims which often can be very complicated. Success can often depend on identifying the insurers of businesses that have long since disappeared. This is sometimes an extremely difficult task, but it can be done and we have been successful.

Being a Middlesbrough based solicitor firm, we have extensive knowledge of not only the law surrounding your case, but the local area and companies that you may be raising your claim against.
