I joined Irwin Mitchell as a solicitor in 2005 and became a Partner in 2011. I began my career at Irwin Mitchell specialising exclusively in mesothelioma and other asbestos related disease claims, before developing an expertise in the field of other industrial diseases, including occupational asthma, upper limb disorders, hand arm vibration syndrome and work related cancers.
I regularly lecture on behalf of the Institute of Occupational and Environmental Medicine at Birmingham University and I have been a Trustee of the West Midlands Hazards Trust since 2006.
"This is sadly yet another devastating case which highlights the huge impact that mesothelioma can have, with Doreen sadly passing away just months after her diagnosis.
“Prior to her death, Doreen told us of how she felt asbestos exposure may have occurred during her time at this company and we would be keen for more information regarding whether that may have been the case.
“Her family remain determined to get answers regarding the illness which took her life and we want to support them in any way that we can. We would be hugely grateful to anyone who may be able to help us.”
“This is yet another incredibly tragic case which highlights the devastating impact that asbestos exposure can have, with Surinder developing the illness many years after his contact with the material is thought to have occurred.
“His family remain devastated by their loss but are keen to gain answers regarding just how he came to be exposed to asbestos. With this in mind, we would be grateful to anyone who can provide information regarding these employers and the working conditions Surinder would have faced.
“Any detail, no matter how small, could ultimately prove vital to our efforts to secure justice for this family.”
“We sadly see a huge number of cases in which the tragic impact of asbestos becomes clear many years after a person has been exposed to the material.
“We have major concerns that William’s mesothelioma may be linked to his working life and we are keen to develop a better picture of his time at Smith Brothers.
“We would be hugely grateful to anyone who is able to provide information regarding the working conditions he would have faced while working for the company and also ultimately whether more could have been done to protect him.”
"Thousands of people still die each year in the UK as a direct result of being made to work in unsafe conditions. Health and safety has come a long way in recent years but the figures show there is still much to do.
“Sometimes they are the victims of tragic but avoidable accidents, or, as with many of our clients, they were exposed to asbestos or other harmful substances by their employers many years ago and have, in most cases, been made to suffer terribly as a result.”
