Sarah Tagg

Paralegal

Biography

I have undertaken workplace illness work for 17 years including Noise Induced Hearing Loss, tinnitus, Vibration White Finger, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, asthma, dermatitis and Repetitive Strain Injury cases.

I was involved in the British Coal Compensation Scheme for many years dealing with coal miners' claims for respiratory diseases such as chronic bronchitis and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and then became involved with the Miner's Knee Litigation reviewing claims for osteoarthritis of the knees.

Publications

I have had a number of press releases in the Sheffield Star over the years and a case for a client who worked for Coldwater Seafood picked up in The Sun.

What inspired you to get into law?

My Father was a coal miner which sparked my interest in the British Coal Scheme and thereafter I became involved in other disease cases. I want to help those people affected in their daily lives who have been injured or have an illness as a result of their work, through no fault of their own.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

It is rewarding to obtain compensation for people who are suffering from injuries and illnesses knowing that the compensation they receive may improve the quality of their lives.

What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell are a very personable firm that cares about their client's needs.

What do you do away from the office?

I enjoy reading, playing netball, socialising and spending time with my family.
