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.

Only accredited members appear on the public search facility. If an APIL member's profile does not display the occupational disease specialist logo they will still be accredited at one of the general levels offered by APIL, having satisfied APIL's specific and extensive criteria by providing evidence of their competency and experience in handling personal injury claims.

"Very efficient :) Thank you "

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 diseases. These illnesses can have severe consequences affecting ability to work and quality of life.

If you have an occupational disease you should not feel embarrassed or reluctant about making a claim. You have the right to seek compensation. Occupational disease compensation can help ease your suffering and help to restore your former quality of life.
