Exposure to Harmful Substances

If you have been injured in the workplace as a result of exposure to a harmful substance such as asbestos, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

Perhaps you work in a warehouse or factory and have suffered illness or disease after being exposed to dangerous chemicals or materials, possibly even years after the exposure. Employers owe a legal duty to their employees to ensure that they are not exposed to hazardous substances at work.  You can still make a claim for compensation even if your illness develops years after your employment and your employer or company no longer exists. We can seek compensation through their insurance company if you have suffered from an illness or disease as a result of that exposure.

You may have been left with lasting physical pain, long-term health problems and lack of ability to support your family. 

Polite and professional and access to local office.

How can our personal injury lawyers help you with a claim for exposure to harmful substances?

 Our expert team of personal injury lawyers can guide you through the process of making a claim against an employer and help you secure the compensation you deserve, as well as advising you on employment-related issues. Our specialist solicitors have a wealth of experience in this area in nearly every type of workplace.

 Our solicitors can assess your claim in a free initial appointment, either at your home or in any of our offices in Ipswich, Hadleigh, Felixstowe, Woodbridge or Melton.

We will investigate your case quickly and, if possible we will obtain an interim payment of compensation for you to help assist you financially. We can also offer a fully insurance protected No-Win No-Fee conditional fee agreement.

If you wish to receive advice on your case, call us on 01473 298125 or complete our online enquiry form and we will be happy to discuss your circumstances in a free initial consultation.
