In the fight against dust disease, the law can be a potent tool. While it can’t heal the symptoms of illnesses like asbestosis, mesothelioma or Coal Miners Black Lung, it can impose consequences on the conditions that can lead to dust disease. By doing so, legal action can both compensate the current victims of dust disease and spare the fate of future victims.
Such is the role of lawyers like Nicola Maher, a dust disease litigation lawyer at law firm Turner Freeman. Having been admitted in 2015, Maher quickly joined the effort to represent asbestos victims.
