Asbestos related diseases
About James Cameron
I am a solicitor and Associate Director specialising in industrial disease claims at Oliver & Co Solicitors, Chester. I have been specialising in asbestos disease claims for the last 14 years and over that time, have succeeded in recovering high damages sums for sufferers and their families in hundreds of cases.
My cases are often complex and extremely urgent and I pride myself on working for clients with speed and vigour, to secure their compensation as swiftly as possible.
I regularly recover compensation to cover my clients' private treatment costs, including for immunotherapy and chemotherapy.
I have a passion for this specialist area of work and do my utmost to provide excellent client care, which is evidenced by what my clients say about my service when leaving 5 star reviews on Trust Pilot.
My recent claims successes include:
£455,000.00 recovered for a widow who sadly lost her husband to mesothelioma. Her previous solicitors were unable to locate insurance for the Defendant company but I tracked down former employees of the company who were able to recall the name of the insurer with statements being taken from them. The claim succeeded deep into proceedings.
£475,000.00 recovered for a Managing Director with a serious respiratory disability caused by his pleural thickening. The case involved accountancy evidence as the Claimant ran his own successful business and complex arguments were made on quantum to secure a high provisional damages figure.
I recovered compensation for a mother who most tragically lost her son to mesothelioma at the tender age of 21. He had suffered exposure as a baby when breathing in asbestos dust from his father's contaminated work clothes. The claim was made more difficult due to his father's HMRC work history failing to refer to the Defendant as an employer. However, with the aid of witness statements I gathered to evidence the employment relationship, the claim succeeded.
It is vital to hold Defendant employers, insurers and others to account for their negligence and I will continue to work as hard as possible for my clients to secure this in every case I deal with.
