Natasha was excellent.

From start to finish she understood my dilemma. She acted very promptly and efficiently. I would have no problem recommending Oakwood and especially Natasha to anyone. Thanks for everything.

I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I was pleased with the settlement and would like to thank Natasha Hardy for her time and patience and the excellent advice she offered. Very deserving of the 5 stars I have given.

The Experts in Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour (HPV) claims

Oakwood Solicitors Ltd has a dedicated team of solicitors and legal professionals, specialising in high-value hydrogen peroxide vapour
(HPV) claims. With a strong reputation for being tough on defendants, we’re sure to recover the compensation you deserve.

What is hydrogen peroxide vapour (HPV)?

Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical made up of hydrogen and water that can be used as a disinfectant to kill bacteria. Hydrogen peroxide can be discharged from machines as a fine aerosol to decontaminate clinical areas. This is known as hydrogen peroxide vapour.

Can hydrogen peroxide vapour harm me?

HPV machines contain silver nitrate in addition to hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide and silver nitrate are irritants to the human body. Hydrogen peroxide vapour can quickly irritate the eyes and respiratory tract, causing symptoms such as throat irritation, shortness of breath and nose bleeds.

Could my employer be liable for compensation?

If you have operated HPV machines without adequate instruction, training and protective equipment, and are experiencing symptoms such as throat irritation, shortness of breath and nose bleeds, then your employer could be liable for compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is my claim worth?

The value of your claim depends on many factors including the severity of your symptoms. It’s not uncommon for claims to be worth up to £10,000.00.

Will it cost me anything?

Your claim would be dealt with under a “no-win-no-fee” agreement. There’s no cost to you if you lose your claim. If your claim is successful, we take 25% of your compensation. It’s that easy.
