    Excellent service from start to finish from Nicola and Natalie! Super responsive to emails and all my questions as a first time single buyer. Natalie and Nicola make a great team and are so approachable. Definitely recommend them for property related legal services.

  • Frankie

    Really happy with my experience using versus law, from start to finish they put my mind at ease as I wasn’t buying a house in the normal way, it was through a family divorce and there were time scales and dead lines to meet, versus law managed to conker my mortgage and speed things up to avoid any extra costs, nicola was always there to ease my mind when I had any concerns as things do get stressful whilst purchasing a property, the ladies on the reception we also a delight and couldn’t do more to make you feel comfortable in any situation, if you are thinking of using versus law to assist you through your mortgage then look no further as these guys couldn’t have done more for me, I couldn’t have been happier with my experience

    Nicola Nolan’s conveyancing service has always been excellent, I have used them several times in the last 5 years. In particular for my business I have found their relationship and understanding of Paragon Bank to be very useful. I would highly recommend.

  • Kay

    Excellent decision to go with Versus Law! Nick Wintrip handled the very stressful job of our house sale with professionalism, calmness and a good sense of humour. We did everything via email, phone and post, and he was always quick in responding and keeping me updated every step of the way. Very competitively priced too. I would highly recommend Versus Law without the slightest hesitation.

    Thomas Reid dealt with the sale and purchase of our properties. He was a pleasure to work with – very quick to respond to queries and very efficient in his work. As a result, the process went very smoothly with minimal delays. I would highly recommend competitively priced Versus Law and especially the professionalism of Thomas Reid.

    Fantastic experience with Natalie and her colleagues. Email updates throughout the home buying process, estimates of how long it would take to get her work completed and local knowledge which speeded up the process. 100% recommended.

  • Wetherill

    What an outstanding team they turned my purchase around within the set time frame and very professional at all times.
    They went above and beyond reassured myself throughout the process.

  • Nasir

    Versus Law dealt with my house sale from start to finish in a most professional manner. A friendly, professional, competent team who get the job done within the time parameters. I highly recommend this firm.

  • Colin and Yvonne

    Absolutely brilliant service as always.
    This is the third time using Versuslaw and they never fail to impress. Natalie and Nicola are real diamonds and you really get the sense that they actually care about you.

    We actually live in London, but continued to use them for our London property because of our previous experience with them.
    Thank you guys, would highly recommend you to anyone.

  • B Man

    Excellent service!!! We are really happy with the service VersusLaw provided to us. Being first time buyer, we dint have much idea about the whole process and had lots of questions. They have given proper and clear response on time to everything we have requested. For us, one of the property got cancelled in between the process because the owner decided to not to sell that property few days after accepting our offer. Though there were searches and procedures done already for that property VersusLaw did not ask Fee for that purchase as they understood the difficult situation we were in. When we found our next property, we had no doubt whom to contact. We are really happy and totally satisfied by the service Nicola, Natalie and their team offered. We will highly recommend your service to anyone,

  • Ross Grant

    Today I have completed on the purchase of my very first apartment, and it just wouldn’t have been possible without the INCREDIBLE knowledge, guidance and GENUINE care of Nicola, Natalie, and the entire Versus Law team.

    This purchase was far from straightforward, with lots of potential pitfalls – all navigated with professionalism, patience and an impeccable attention to detail by Nicola.

    Nic went well above and beyond the call of duty to look into some extremely complex accounts and repair budgets to the apartment block in question – something I would have completely overlooked.

    As a result, with her guidance, I managed to negotiate a £2,000 reduction in asking price – something I’m sure other solicitors would have let slip through the net.

    That’s a genuine £2000 saving – a lot of money for a first-time buyer.

    You get a real sense that these guys actually CARE – they make you feel more like a friend, than a client – and don’t leave a stone unturned when it comes to conveyancing. If there is anything to uncover on a property, trust me, Nicola will find it!

    In essence, Versus Law made what could have been a rather stressful situation, easy and straightforward.

    Communications and response times were brilliant, with daily updates coming via phone and email – and I never felt rushed by anyone when I had queries.

    I honestly cannot recommend Versus Law enough.

    I’m going to pick up the keys to my apartment now – and won’t be using anyone other than these guys for all future property purchases/ sales.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH Versus Law – I’ll be raising a glass of champagne to you all at the housewarming! 🙂

  • CW

    Great service provided by Nicola and her team.
    Always communicating with updates for the completion of my property.
    Would highly recommend

  • Jackie

    I used Versus Law to buy my first house. Had no idea how it worked but I must say that the conveyancing team held my hand all the way through. On the day of completion there was a delay and they stayed in office late to ensure it went through so I wasn’t waiting over the weekend. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Versus Law and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. It was nice to speak to people who I felt cared for me and put my interests first at all times. Thank you so much for your help

  • Andy

    Versus were great to deal with when they provided the conveyancing for my house purchase. I was able to complete the process without needing to physically travel to their offices and my solicitor was always available for any questions when I was completing all the paperwork. Everyone was very friendly to speak to.

  • T Baguley

    Fantastic conveyancing service from Nicola and Natalie, they kept on top of everything from start to finish and were always available whenever we had questions. I’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.

  • David JC

    Very impressed with every aspect of Versus Law, from service they provide to the attitude of the staff. Always called back when they said they would and had a laugh with them too. Will definately use again (if I need to).

  • Mrs Morris

    I would recommend Versus Law to anyone, particularly Nick Wintrip, who looked after us extremely well. They are very efficient and communicated with us fully at all times. We were able to contact them by phone and e mail and did not need to rely on letter going back and forth. Nick is really friendly too and put us at ease throughout the end to end sales process. Thank you.

  • Tanita

    Nicola and Natalie did a wonderful job. They were friendly and patient. Answered my many many questions and got the job done very efficiently. I am highly impressed and would definitely recommend them.

Respiratory Disease

Respiratory and Lung Disease Claims

Dependent on the level of exposure, symptoms of workplace respiratory and lung diseases can be manageable or, in some cases, can be fatal. It’s estimated that work-related respiratory diseases are responsible for approximately 12,000 deaths in the UK every year.

There is a range of ways that employees can contract or aggravate work-related respiratory and lung diseases. Working in an unsafe workplace, one in which requisite safety measures have not been taken, puts employees at risk of developing respiratory or lung problems.

Versus Law is well-versed in helping to settle claims brought about from employees developing respiratory of lung disease problems. Our compassionate and discerning respiratory disease solicitors in Manchester will help you to get the compensation you deserve.

What are the Symptoms of Respiratory Disease?

Inhaling irritants, such as dust and fumes can cause respiratory conditions to flare. Not only that, working in an environment rich in respiratory irritants can worse existing respiratory conditions to the point that medical treatment or hospitalisation is required.

Exposure to asbestos dust can cause asbestosis, lung cancer, or other asbestos-related health conditions to develop or existing conditions to deteriorate. Unhealthy exposure to silica can cause silicosis.

Inhaling textile or coal dust, welding fumes or plastics manufacturing fumes or vapours from chemicals and gaseous substances, such as formaldehyde, chlorine or ammonia are particularly dangerous if exposed to for a prolonged period.

Common symptoms of respiratory disease include the following:

  • Breathlessness
  • Wheezing
  • Tight chest
  • Persistent chesty cough
  • Frequent chest infections

If you have persistently suffered with one or more of these symptoms, it’s paramount that you seek medical attention. Should you then be given a respiratory or lung disease diagnosis, you may be able to make a claim. If so, Versus Law solicitors in Manchester will be able to help you.

The Responsibility of Your Employer

Your employer has a legal obligation to make sure that you are provided with a safe environment in which to work. This includes making sure that any existing pulmonary conditions are not aggravated, can surface and that, in general, your working environment does not pose a threat to your health.

Employers are responsible for assessing risk in the workplace and taking appropriate actions to eradicate or minimise that risk. This includes providing suitable enclosures or ventilation, protective equipment and creating alternative processes should existing ones poses a health concern.

If an employer fails to perform their responsibilities and this results in negatively effecting your health, you may be entitled to receive compensation after engaging the services of a reputable solicitors in Manchester, like Versus Law.

How Do I Make a Respiratory Disease Claim?

The first step to making respiratory disease claims in Manchester is to contact Versus Law solicitors. We will then offer you a FREE consultation to discuss your case. Once we understand your circumstances, we will talk you through your options and provide you with expert on how to make a respiratory disease claim.

At this stage, all you need to do is to provide us with all the details of the circumstances surrounding your respiratory illness, the effect that the illness has had on your life, including any absences from work and loss of earnings. If you have any medical records of ongoing treatment, that would be helpful also.

Once we’ve gathered all the information, our tactful respiratory disease solicitors in Manchester will contact your employer to see if they are prepared to take responsibility. If they do, we will try to get interim compensation payments. Any agreed amount will be paid to you prior to the settlement of your claim and can help financially towards any loss of income, medical treatment or travel expenses.

As part of our thorough service, we may instruct a medical professional to examine you to understand the extent of your injury. We may also gather information from medical professionals to help us to gain a greater understanding of your respiratory illness.

Should you have been exposed to conditions that have caused or aggravated your respiratory illness from more than one employer, we can pursue claims against multiple responsible parties. We also have the resources to pursue your claim even if your employer (s) are no longer trading.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For Respiratory Disease?

The amount of compensation that you may receive is entirely dependent on individual circumstances. Our Manchester based respiratory disease solicitors will need to gather information to make a judgement. We will examine the following:

  • The severity of your pulmonary illness
  • If your working environment is harmful to your lungs and the actions your employer did or did not take
  • Any medical expenses you’ve had to pay
  • Your ongoing care and support, both immediately and in the future

We will make sure that the compensation you receive will help you to cover the costs of any ongoing medical treatment and the support you need to manage your hearing condition.

No Win No Fee Respiratory Disease Claims

Versus Law offers a no win no fee respiratory and lung disease service. This means that you won’t have to pay anything upfront or if your claim is unsuccessful.

In a successful claim, the person or person’s responsible will be responsible for paying your legal fees, with any outstanding balance deducted from your compensation.

Throughout your claim, our helpful solicitors in Manchester will keep you informed of your claim’s progress. We will also provide you sound legal advice and communicate professionally with your employer.

Is There a Time Limit on Making a Respiratory Disease Claim?

According to standard practices, the time limit to making a claim for a respiratory disease is within three years of realising a pulmonary illness may inked to your workplace environment. If you work outside the UK, any time limit may be less than three years.
