OCCUPATIONAL CANCER SOLICITORS - PERSONAL INJURY COMPENSATION CLAIM LAWYERSSOLICITORS HELPLINE: ☎ 0330 660 7119
About 50 people die of occupational cancer each and every day of the year. Despite strict legislation, many employers completely ignore the regulations and do not provide sufficient care and protection for their employees. The landscape for occupational cancer has changed considerably over the years from what was once thought to be just something older people suffered, to younger, fit and healthy workers dying due to negligent employers. The sad fact is that this industrial illness now affects a whole new generation of workers. Young parents, employees fresh from school or college and anyone else who comes into prolonged contact with carcinogenic compounds whilst at work. If you need legal advice about a potential personal injury compensation claim please call the helpline to speak to one of our occupational cancer solicitors.

Occupational Cancer Solicitors
Our personal injury solicitors have particular expertise in dealing with occupational cancer claims.

We'll ask what your situation is and what problems you have experienced. We'll then give you a no nonsense assessment of the chances of success should you wish to claim compensation.
Dangerous Environment & Occupational Cancer
Additionally worrying is the fact that the young people who are dying from occupational cancer do not typically have long working records or previous heavy industry experience. The condition cannot therefore be blamed on a lifetime of breathing dangerous air. It's clear that occupational cancer is something that can be contracted relatively quickly through working in a dangerous environment.
Health & Safety at Work
About one in every three people in the UK will suffer from cancer at some time during their lives. One in every four people will die from cancer. It accounts for 25% of all deaths in England and Wales and the problem isn't going away. If you've been affected or you consider yourself to have been at risk from an employer who did not properly advise you or provide you with the necessary protective knowledge and equipment then you need to act fast.
