Expert Witness


Our experts advise in cases involving diseases caused by exposure to respirable crystalline silica.

Workers in the construction, tunneling, mining, quarrying, stonemasonry, foundries and pottery industries may have been exposed to RCS.  Exposure to RCS can cause silicosis, COPD, lung cancer and other conditions.

We have four experts that can provide advice and evidence in legal cases involving exposure to RCS:

Steve Bradley

Tina Conroy

Ian Glendenning

Our team’s experience covers construction, foundries, mining, quarrying, tunneling and stonemasonry.

We can assist by providing advice and evidence on the likely extent of exposure to RCS, the knowledge and standards that existed at the time when exposure is alleged to have occurred and on apportionment of exposure.

We have worked on high profile group actions, including actions overseas and the British Coal Respiratory Disease Litigation – believed to be the largest ever UK personal injury action.

As well as reports for use in proceedings, our silica experts can provide:

  • Verbal advice
  • Preliminary written advice
  • Preliminary reports for disclosure
  • Assistance with gathering evidence
