All firms will probably provide the first half hour of your consultation free of charge, either by telephone or in person.

 

Types of mining illnesses:

  • Noise induced hearing loss and deafness
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Vibration white finger and other vibration related conditions
  • Asbestos related conditions
  • Repetitive strain injuries

Making a mining illness compensation claim

If you believe you are suffering from an illness which is likely to have been caused in some part by mining you may be entitled to compensation. If you have a relative who has passed away who suffered from a mining related illness you may also be able to make a claim on their behalf. In either case your next step should be to discuss a potential claim with a specialist mining compensation lawyer.

Only accredited specialist mining illness lawyers are listed on this page.

It is strongly recommended that you should consult with two or three accredited injury lawyers before making a decision on who to instruct.

Specialist accreditation

APIL provides accreditation for lawyers who practice in personal injury law, and who specialise in particular fields, including occupational disease.

Specialist accreditation shows that an APIL accredited occupational disease lawyer has achieved a very high standard of expertise and competence and actually specialises in this area of the law.
