The types of Industrial Disease Claims we deal with:

Noise Induced Hearing Loss Claims (NIHL)

Deterioration in our hearing is often attributed to the aging process or even our interests and hobbies. However in most instances, hearing loss may not be self-inflicted, it may be induced from working in an excessively noisy environment such as, but not limited to, engineering, steelworks, coal mining, textiles and ship building.

If you have worked in a noisy environment in the past and feel that your hearing has deteriorated even slightly, then do not hesitate to give us a call for a free consultation. There are time limits to when you can bring forward a claim. So act fast, act now!

Asbestos and Related Diseases

Asbestos is now a banned material which was formerly used in the construction trade. Exposure to dust particles from this material is proven to have a significant impact on your health. In most cases, the full effects of this substance are not known until many many years later.

Have you worked with this material regularly, or worked in an environment where it was frequently used? If yes, then you may have been affected and are entitled to some to compensation.


Mesothelioma is a type of disease which follows from the above. It is a result of the exposure to asbestos. This disease is the cause of thousands of deaths a year and has only made itself known after many years of working with asbestos.

Have you worked with asbestos? It may have had an impact on close family members who have come into contact with you at the time of your exposure as this material is as deadly by working with it, and equally as deadly by being around clothing and people that have been exposed to it.

IF you feel that you have been affected as a result of exposure to asbestos, then do not hesitate, give us a call on 01254 377786 now.

Repetitive Strain Injuries & Vibration White Finger

Carrying out repetitive tasks in the workplace such as the use of machinery or hand tools in a specific manner continuously can lead to a repetitive injury. A clear example is the condition known as vibration white finger (VWF), where the excessive and continuous use of handheld machinery without necessary and adequate protection has left you with long term suffering. Such injuries can affect your daily life by being unable to carry out even the most simplest of tasks such a holding things properly.

Has your employment exposed you to repetitive tasks? Do you feel that you are now suffering as a result? Stanley House Solicitors are here to help.

Respiratory Illnesses

Being directly or indirectly exposed to substances, gases, fumes or even dust often leads to the individual inhaling these without realising (such as working in a bus or lorry depot). The inhaling of gases, fumes or dust can cause anything from a minor niggling cough and wheezing to the more significant diseases such as lung cancer or skin cancer.

Do you feel that your health is suffering as a result? Do not waste any time and give our offices a call or request a call back from us to discuss your claim.
