Industrial Disease

Are you one of the two million people in the UK who believe that they may be suffering from a chronic disease as a result of their employers’ actions? At JMW industrial disease our lawyers only ever act for employees never employers, and aim to make sure your claim is as swift and stress free as possible. Since the industrial revolution employees have contracted illnesses through their work. Our Lawyers are experts in the stringent precautions that should be taken in the modern workplace and are on hand to give you immediate advice as to whether you may have a claim. In many cases we will be able to arrange a home visit to discuss your case in the comfort of your own home.
