Industrial Diseases Compensation Claim

An Industrial Disease is an umbrella term for any illness that is caused by exposure to hazards in any employment or work environment. Many people wrongly assume that such illnesses are only precipitated in heavy industrial jobs such as mining or construction but unfortunately issues can occur in every workplace setting. Whether the medical problem has occurred through exposure to hazardous chemicals, excessive noise or unacceptable working conditions, by law your employer should protect you in your place of work.  If you feel you have contracted an industrial illness you can make a claim for personal injury compensation.

What are the common diseases in the workplace?

The most common illnesses claimed for in this section are:

  • Vibration White Finger: This is a physical condition which is triggered by excessive use of vibrating machinery in the workplace. To learn more click here
  • Asbestosis: This illness is caused when an employee breathes in asbestos fibres. An employer has a duty to check work environments to ensure there is no asbestos in the work area or relevant safety measures are in place. To learn more click here
  • Silicosis: This is a lung disease which is caused by breathing in quartz or silica in the work environment.
  • Repetitive strain injury: This is a physical strain in the upper body caused by excessive and continuous repetition. Usually affecting the lower arms and the hands and fingers, it is a common complaint affecting typists. To learn more click here
  • Industrial deafness: This is caused when an employee is exposed to an environment where there are constant loud noises. An employer should risk assess both the workplace and the task and in relevant situations provide personal protective equipment such as ear defenders. To learn more click here
  • Industrial Dermatitis: The primary symptom of this illness is an inflammation of the skin caused by contact with chemicals or substances in the workplace.

Making a claim: Industrial diseases

If you feel you have contracted an industrial illness you can make a claim for personal injury compensation. The reward you receive may offer financial help in supporting you through the period of your illness. It may also help prevent further accidents happening as changes to health and safety measures are tightened. Employers expect there to be compensation claims and factor this into their budgets by taking out liability insurance. At our expert solicitors can guide you through the process.
