Applebys Solicitors of Bradford are pleased to announce the appointment of Ben Mitchell to their Industrial Disease team.
Ben will head Applebys Industrial Disease Department where he will specialise in cases involving industrial disease and industrial deafness. This includes cases relating to Noise Induced Hearing Loss and Vibration White Finger.

Ben comes originally from Wakefield and has spent his entire legal career serving clients in the Yorkshire region. Having studied at Hull and Huddersfield Universities Ben specialised in industrial disease from early on in his career. Ben has the unique experience of having worked for a defendant insurance company defending industrial disease claims before moving to act for victims of work place illnesses.
When not looking after his 14 month old daughter Ben enjoys playing golf to a decent standard.
Amin Ullah, the Director of Applebys Solicitors, commented ‘Ben will be a great addition to our well established Industrial Disease Department and we know he will make a strong contribution to the team and to our clients’. He continued ‘His experience will be of real benefit to those of our clients who have suffered from a loss of hearing or deafness as a result of exposure to noise whilst at work’.
