Holmes’ occupational 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 fifty 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. Within the definition of disease, we handle claims arising from exposure to harmful substances and workplace activities leading to (amongst other conditions) cancer, asthma, and dermatitis. We also frequently handle public liability claims arising from carbon monoxide exposure and toxic mold/damp. We use our technical capacity to settle appropriate cases quickly and defend others both on the merits and in terms of preventing claim floodgates. Our service is enhanced through our bespoke management information and claims analysis support.
