McHale & Co. Solicitors Blog

Our team was approached in 2010 by a tunnel miner who had worked in the profession for all of his life. Aged almost 70, he had a number of medical problems. 

These types of cases are notoriously hard to prove due to the ages of affected clients, and difficulties proving the links between the environment and symptoms. However, our extensive experience in this area enabled us to successfully argue our case.

Despite the complication of other medical problems, we managed to prove at least 5% of his current difficulties were related to a breach of duty by his previous employers, and secured a settlement of over £6,000.
