Work related disease or illness and asbestos claims
Sheridan & Co, based in Kingston, Surrey, has substantial experience in obtaining compensation for those who have become ill or contracted a disease because of something that happened at their place of work. These types of claim are often referred to as occupational disease or industrial disease claims.
There are numerous types of condition or illness that could give rise to a claim, ranging from repetitive strain injuries, back pain and stress, to diseases from exposure to asbestos.
In some cases (for example asbestos claims) the employee may only become aware of the disease many years after the damage was done. In other cases, the connection between the illness and the workplace may not be obvious.
Examples of work related diseases that could give rise to a claim include asbestos related diseases, industrial deafness, respiratory conditions, vibration white finger, skin conditions, stress, repetitive strain and back conditions.
The firm has a high success rate and an established track record for obtaining the maximum amount of damages for its clients' injuries, often without the need for a trial. From its offices in Kingston, Surrey, Sheridan & Co has represented many hundreds of clients who have obtained compensation because of a work related illness.
