Industrial Disease Claims

Industrial Disease Claims at a Glance

We can be exposed to harmful substances whilst carrying out our duties at work. For example asbestos or other harmful substances can cause mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer.

These are serious conditions that can sometimes develop very quickly but may take months or even years to develop depending on the person and the substance.

For many years rules and regulations have been in place to try and reduce the risk of workers developing illnesses but employers have often failed to comply with these laws to keep work places safe.

If you develop an illness which you believe has been caused by work, you should seek medical advice immediately. If the doctor confirms that your illness has been caused by work it is advisable to seek legal advice about claiming compensation for your illness and also advice in relation to possible entitlement to state benefits.
