Mark Reynolds Solicitors word hard to ensure that anyone pursuing litigation arising from industrial disease receives the highest possible standards of representation.

We cover industrial diseases in the following areas:

Industrial disease often results from exposure to a substance or an unsafe working practise over an extended time period. An industrial disease claim therefore often involves the a full and comprehensive investigation of an individual’s working history.

Many industrial disease claimants are unaware that their health problems relate to their occupation. For example, those who have worked with vibrating tools may experience pins and needles numbness, and reduced dexterity of the fingers and hands, without recognising the connection with their occupation.
