Even if your company is not on the list, it may be that it is one we have not heard of. If so, we would appreciate any information you may have. This might help others who may have claims in the future.

In our experience workers who were exposed to asbestos as long as 60 years ago are still at risk of developing asbestos disease. Even if the company in question may no longer be trading, have changed its name or nature of business or have been acquired or merged with other organisations Corries may still be able to help. We might be able to trace a pathway to who is responsible for the claim or an insurer to meet it.

When a company no longer exists there is often very little hard information. Frequently records have been destroyed long ago and, as you may expect, insurance companies are not helpful in volunteering information.

The Government is currently seeking a review to only hold companies records for six years. Corries Solicitors firmly oppose this plan as it would deprive many thousands of asbestos victims from finding out about their former employers and their insurers. This could deprive them of compensation.

Corries have a great deal of experience in tracing employers of defunct businesses and their insurers. We have developed techniques to trace employers and their insurers through company records, fellow workers, the H.M. Revenue, local authority records, newspaper reports and other sources.

Our determination on our Clients’ behalf has often achieved great results. Sometimes this may be achieved by one phone call or a letter.

Corries are committed to go that extra distance for you and your family.

Corries will never turn a case down until we have exhausted every option. Call our team now on 0800 083 7839 for a free no obligation discussion.
