        Disease Claims

        Substantial claims volumes and developing law, in terms of legal duties and causation, demand a highly-qualified and experience team able to combine technical expertise, innovative legal thinking and technology-led efficient claims handling systems.

        Our disease lawyers are market leaders in strategic issues such as the developing law of causation and policy coverage having acted in landmark decisions in this field for the last 40 years.

        These cases include mesothelioma and other asbestos related conditions, HAVS/vibration white finger, occupational deafness, work-related upper limb disorders, stress, abuse, bullying and harassment, bladder and other oil-based cancers, leukaemia and other cancers, asthma, dermatitis, beat knee and acoustic shock.

        We provide market-leading advice achieving excellent results, including involvement in law-making cases in the highest courts in the land. We take a decisive, collaborative approach, with you. We work to identify risk to your business and to provide sustainable, clear direction for the future.

        We’re recognised across the industry for our experience and knowledge. We work for some of the leading insurers in the industry as well as runoff syndicates, brokers, private companies and the self-insured. We help them to make smarter decisions in relation to a range of occupational disease claims. We continue to handle the high-profile law-making cases in this field.
