Industrial disease claims

Unfortunately workplace injury and illness are still fairly common, and could happen to anyone, and in any type of job. Some very common conditions we see our clients suffer from are:

  • Breathing and lung problems
  • Skin irritations and reactions
  • Back, neck and shoulder injuries
  • Worsening of hearing or eyesight
  • Injuries and strains to hands and arms
  • Various cancers
  • Unexpected amputations due to injury

Are you suffering from any of the above, or any other health condition you believe was caused at your place of work? We can help.

Asbestos Claims

Asbestos-related diseases can affect anyone who breathes in the dust and it can take decades to develop following the initial exposure.

Exposure to asbestos can lead to all sorts of health complications and diseases, such as high blood pressure, asbestosis and lung cancer.

Pleural thickening claims

Pleural thickening is a lung disease caused by exposure to asbestos. It causes shortness of breath due to a significant reduction in a person’s lung capacity.

Asbestos has long been known to be a very dangerous substance, and exposure to it can make you very ill. Working around asbestos will likely cause health complications, but employer’s can avoid this by protecting their workers. Unfortunately, not all do.

If you have pleural thickening because of your employer’s failure to protect you, our industrial disease team can help you claim compensation for your pain, suffering, and financial losses.

Mesothelioma claims

Mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Often the damage which causes mesothelioma isn’t noticed for years, by which time it has developed and become very serious.

Because it has been known that exposure to asbestos can cause cancer for a very long time now, you can claim against your employer if you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma. Even if you were exposed years ago.

We understand that being diagnosed with mesothelioma can turn your world on its head, but we can help to bring negligent employers to justice and get you the compensation you deserve.

We want to help you get your life back. Our specialist industrial disease solicitors will help you claim compensation for your pain and suffering, and hold your employer accountable so that no one else has to suffer.
