Industrial Disease

Workplace personal injury also encompasses industrial disease which describes a condition or illness that has developed after exposure to a toxic substance in unsafe working conditions.

Industrial disease has significant consequences on health and quality of life. If you have been exposed to harmful substances at work and developed an industrial disease as a result you may be entitled to compensation.

Industrial Disease Claims.

Industrial disease claims are often more complex to handle than other personal injury claims. Exposure to harmful substances does not always result immediately in industrial disease, which can develop over time. This means that proving the link between the disease and an unsafe work environment could rely on expert evidence and testimony.

When making an industrial disease claim it is therefore important to choose expert personal injury solicitors to ensure that you can claim the compensation you deserve.

How to make an industrial disease claim.

If you have developed an industrial disease and feel that it may be due to unsafe working conditions you will need to speak to one of our specialist advisors. We offer a free initial 30 minute consultation so we can help you to make the best decisions for your situation. You can book an appointment with us or call us today to speak to a personal injury solicitor.
