Industrial disease claims Solicitor

All employers have a duty to provide their employees with a safe and healthy environment to work in.

Health and safety regulations are there to protect the employee and place a legal obligation on the employer to provide appropriate equipment and tools, protection from harmful substances, carry out risk assessments and ensure safe systems of work are in place.

However, sometimes health and safety measures are either not in place or are ineffective and this can result in a number of serious issues for the employee, including developing an industrial disease.

Some of the most common industrial diseases include:

  • Asbestosis
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)
  • Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL)
  • Mesothelioma
  • Pleural thickening
  • Pneumoconiosis
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
  • Silicosis
  • Vibration white finger
  • Work related asthma
  • Work related dermatitis

If you are suffering from any of these conditions and have been exposed to asbestos, vibration, noise, or things such as hairdressing chemicals, solder fumes, industrial paints or adhesives, in either your current employment or in a job many years ago, you may be entitled to claim compensation, even if your employer is no longer trading.

If you are still employed, making a claim against your employer could seem daunting, but our team, who are disease claims specialists, will ensure the process is as straightforward as possible. We will also make sure you have access to any medical or support services that you need.
