Paul is a senior solicitor specialising solely in asbestos-related disease cases across Yorkshire and Humberside, based in Thompsons Solicitors’ office in Leeds.
Qualifying as a solicitor in 2003, over the years Paul has built up his knowledge and skill, handling personal injury claims for work-related upper limb disorders (WRULD), hearing loss, asbestos-related disease, hand and arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), dermatitis, asthma and injuries as a result of accidents.
Paul now focuses on asbestos-related disease claims. Dealing with a wide range of cases including asbestos-related lung cancers, mesothelioma, pleural thickening and asbestosis, Paul works quickly and efficiently to gain the best outcome for his clients with the maximum amount of compensation in the shortest time possible. Paul knows that no amount of money can make up for a terminal diagnosis, but it can make life easier for victims and their families and help pay for medical expenses.
With sensitivity and sympathetically, Paul will support and guide his clients and their families through what can be a bewildering legal process at the most difficult time.
As most cases of asbestos-related disease take about 40 years to develop after exposure, in many cases employers or companies will have gone out of business. Paul is undeterred by even the most difficult cases to prove and doggedly tracks down successor companies or the liability insurers of defunct companies to get justice for his clients.
Paul is a determined champion of those who have been injured at work and believes that working at Thompsons ensures he can dedicate his time to working solely for victims and never for large insurance companies.
