Industrial Disease Claim

Industrial Disease ClaimIs your health suffering after years of industrial labour? Occupational hazards present themselves in many lines of employment, yet few are as prolific or potentially damaging long-term as industrial disease and injury. “Occupational” and “industrial disease” are terms used to describe illnesses, injuries and conditions sustained in the workplace, usually due to prolonged exposure to harmful substances or environments. Many people simply don’t realise they may be entitled to an industrial disease compensation claim. Armed with years of experience in industrial and occupational law, our team of award-winning no win no fee personal injury solicitors are on-hand to seek justice on your behalf.

Are You Eligible To Make An Industrial Disease Claim?

Industrial diseases rarely present themselves until a significant period of time after exposure to hazardous chemicals, pollutants and machinery. This is why industrial disease compensation claims were relatively unheard of until quite recently. Advancements in medical sciences have now enabled doctors to ascertain the root causes of common health issues. These advancements, coupled with changes to the law regarding employer liability now make it possible for sufferers to seek compensation for health issues, such as:

  • * Industrial Deafness
  • * Chronic Bronchitis and Occupational Asthma.
  • * Repetitive Strain Injury and vibration injury.
  • * Physical injury, burns and disfigurement caused by industrial machinery.
  • * Occupational skin conditions, such as dermatitis.
  • * Pulmonary Diseases.
  • * Lung conditions resulting from exposure to asbestos, silica and other harmful substances.
  • * Disability – including accidents involving permanent limb damage or brain injury.

Causes of Industrial Diseases

Defective work practices are a common contributor to long-term occupational health problems such as RSI (repetitive strain injury), industrial deafness and occupational asthma. Industrial diseases tend to arise from exposure to harsh chemicals or non-controlled pollutants and often include asbestos related respiratory issues, silicosis (lung disease) and chronic bronchitis. While a great many improvements have been made to industrial working conditions, occupational hazards have and continue to negatively impact the health of thousands of people through no fault of their own.
