Roger Maddocks



For over 25 years I have specialised in pursuing compensation claims for individuals who have suffered injury in an accident at work or developed  illness as a result of their work. Over the years I have dealt with claims for accidents across a wide range of industries as diverse as mining, construction, manufacturing and the health service. I have wide experience of dealing with occupational disease claims including mesothelioma and other asbestos related disease claims in which I have a particular interest. I have also dealt with claims for other lung diseases including occupational asthma and  have extensive experience of dealing with claims for other diseases including VWF and RSI.

Roger "has considerable experience, exceptional judgement and very good interpersonal skills with the clients." - Chambers & Partners, 2017

Commenters say: "There is not much about industrial disease he doesn't know; if he doesn't know it, it doesn't exist." - Chambers & Partners 2016

"Used to dealing with both very high-value claims and huge numbers of claims." - Chambers & Partners 2014

"Recommended for asbestos-related claims." - Legal 500, 2013

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

A desire to help achieve justice and redress for those who have suffered illness and injury from going about their work.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Winning compensation for people whose lives have been blighted by accidents at work or occupational disease or for the families of those who have been killed. No amount of compensation can make good the loss of health or of a loved one but compensation can help and provide them with financial security.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I enjoy working as a member of a team, supported by the resources of the larger organisation, the National Law firm.

    Joiner Seeks Help From Workmates After Asbestos Cancer Diagnosis

    “This is yet another tragic case in which a person has developed asbestos-related illness many years after they were most likely initially exposed to the material. “We are determined to help Barry get both financial support and answers regarding his illness and, as part of our work, would be keen to hear from anyone who he has worked with during his time at the council. “Information on the working conditions he has faced could prove absolutely vital in our efforts to ensure that he and his family get the justice they deserve.”

    Former Cable Jointer Forced To Take Legal Action Against Ex-Employers

    “Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive form of cancer that’s caused by exposure to asbestos dust decades ago and it can cause a great deal of pain and suffering for victims like Barry. “All too often we see a case like Barry’s where workers spent time working environments where they were exposed to asbestos dust and were not made aware, by their employers, of the dangers of asbestos dust. It can take decades for symptoms to develop and often it is then difficult for victims to recall in detail how and where they were exposed. “We are committed to getting answers for Barry, and are assisting him by investigating conditions at his former employers. We have been left with no choice but to issue legal proceedings in the High Court in the hope Barry will get the answers he wants.”

    Former Commercial Manager Appeals To Former Colleagues For Help Following Cancer Diagnosis

Paul and his family are now suffering terribly, simply because he wasn’t adequately protected at work.”

    Wallsend Road Bridge Asbestos Removal Welcomed 'But Questions Remain'

    “It is very welcome to see the council taking steps to address the presence of asbestos underneath this bridge, but the whole issue does raise concerns. “The fact that the material – which poses a huge risk to the public – has been sat at the location for three months is far from ideal, so there is scope for improvement in this regard. In addition, the fact that asbestos is present in the first place is also worrying. Due to the huge dangers that the material can pose, companies have strict guidelines to follow regarding the handling and management of it. “This case must serve as a reminder that contractors and other organisations should not shirk their responsibilities on this issue. A failure to meet regulations could have huge consequences on both workers and the public."
