Industrial disease

Home » Services » Dispute resolution » Accident & personal Injury » Industrial disease 

Industrial disease usually develops due to exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace, including dust and fumes from chemical or biological agents. If you have been diagnosed with an industrial disease and there is a link between it and your work environment, and your employers did not provide adequate protection, you may be able to claim compensation. Employers have a legal duty to take reasonable care for the safety of their staff. They may be proved to be negligent if they have failed to provide a safe working environment, or not enforced the wearing of protective clothing. Some of the more common diseases that you may be able to claim compensation for are: 

  • Cancer 
  • Occupational asthma 
  • Occupational emphysema 
  • Skin disease 
  • COPD 
  • Occupational bronchitis  

Our expert, specialist team can discuss the details of your case to see if there is a possibility of making a claim for compensation.
