What is an Industrial Disease?

Although we act for many people injured at work, we also have a specialist team representing clients who have suffered injury and loss as a result of industrial disease or illness.

There is a whole range of injuries and conditions which fall under the definition of industrial disease.

They arise usually where employers have breached their duty of care to ensure your health is not adversely affected by working methods or environment. Often these conditions are caused by poor or hazardous working conditions or exposure to excessive noise, dangerous substances, dust, fumes or vibrating tools and equipment.

While we have the experience and expertise to discuss most aspects of industrial disease the predominant conditions and illnesses that we deal with are;

The effects of industrial disease or illness can sometimes develop quickly or may take years before symptoms start to show. We would always recommend seeking the earliest possible medical advice as sometimes conditions can be life-threatening.

What Can You Claim?

We will look recover compensation for not only injuries but also any financial losses that you may incur or already incurred as a result of your illness.

This can include:

  • Lost income for time off work as a result of injury or treatment
  • Future lost income if your injuries are going to keep you off work for a long time
  • Additional compensation if your injuries put you at a disadvantage on the job market ( this is known as a Smith v Manchester award)
  • Treatment costs such as physiotherapy or long term care if needed as a result of your accident.
  • Out of pocket expenses such as medication etc as well as the cost of aids and appliances; this can include work done on your house if your injuries require it
  • Gratuitous care and assistance from family and friends, this covers helping you get to appointments, help with cooking, washing etc.
  • All other financial losses arising from and as a direct result of the accident.
