Industrial Disease Compensation
Employers have a responsibility to protect the health and safety of all their employees and to minimise risks to their health and wellbeing wherever possible. A failure to uphold this duty can lead to a wide range of industrial diseases, from exposure to chemicals and pollutants, to noise and vibrations. Some of these diseases are well-publicised, such as illnesses arising from asbestos exposure, however, some are lesser known. Nonetheless, you still have the right to claim for Industrial Disease Compensation as a result of the illness caused to you.
Working with you, Attwoods can prove the link between your work environment and your medical condition and work tirelessly to pursue a claim on your behalf, ultimately receiving the compensation you need and deserve.
Works claims are subject to a time limit. In most cases you will need to bring your claim within 3 years of when you realise (or suspect) that your illness is due to your working environment, or 3 years from the onset of your symptoms. Don’t worry if you are unsure whether you are within this time frame, Contact Us to discuss.
Attwoods work on behalf of both individuals, groups of employees and Trade Unions. We believe you should have legal help in your corner whether you are one person or one hundred. We understand how you and your loved ones have been, and are being, affected by the consequences on your health of your working conditions. We act with sympathy and compassion, particularly when a family has tragically lost a loved one to industrial disease.
Ultimately, through pursuing your claim, the aim is to win compensation for:
- Pain and Suffering: both now and in the future
- Loss of Earnings: both now and in the future
- Expenses you have incurred or will incur for restorative treatment, devices, or appliances e.g. hearing aids
We have chosen to conduct all our claims on a No Win No Fee basis, meaning you or your family won’t be left further out of pocket, rather you are able to seek the compensation you deserve without additional financial concerns.

from our CLIENTS
I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.
All my queries and issues have been resolved very efficiently and you have always contacted me back when promised. I have certainty felt you have been acting on my behalf and would like to thank you for that. Once again we would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and would have no reservations recommending you to anyone else – you have been a star
