Accredited Occupational Disease Specialists

Occupational disease specialist

APIL has a specialist accreditation for occupational disease claims. If an APIL member’s profile displays the specialist accreditation logo it shows that they have achieved a particularly high standard of expertise and competence and that they actually specialise in this area of the law. However, due to the specialised nature of this accreditation we may not have a member with specialist accreditation in your area.

If an APIL member’s profile does not display the specialist accreditation logo they will still be accredited by APIL, so will have satisfied APIL’s specific and extensive criteria by providing evidence of their competency and experience in handling personal injury claims.

Your employer has a duty to provide you with a safe working environment and to protect you from injury. Unfortunately, every year thousands of employees develop occupational or work related illnesses. These illnesses can have severe consequences affecting ability to work and quality of life.

If you have a work related illness you should not feel embarrassed or reluctant about making a claim. You have the right to seek compensation. Work related illness compensation can help ease your suffering and help to restore your former quality of life.

"Extremely impressed with Andrew James of Hodge, Jones and Allen - his knowledge is encyclopaedic, his experience extensive and his helpful manner delightful."
