Industrial Disease Compensation Claims
No Win No Fee Injury Solicitors
Work-related diseases can range from mild sickness to long-term debilitating and even fatal illnesses.
Severe diseases are more prevalent in traditional heavy industry but light industry and even offices can also carry a risk.
Dangerous chemicals can be hazardous unless employees are provided with the correct training, safety equipment and protective clothing.
One of the commonly known industrial diseases is Mesothelioma, a form of lung cancer linked with asbestos.
There were 2,515 Mesothelioma-related deaths in the UK in 2014; 2,556 in 2013 and 2,549 in 2012, according to Health & Safety Executive data published in 2016.
The dangers of asbestos are widely publicised but this dangerous material is still widely prevalent across the UK. It is by no means the only threat. Others include:
- Silicosis – caused by inhaling silica or quartz dust
- Occupational asthma
- Pneumoconiosis (welder’s lung)
- Dermatitis – a skin reaction which can develop from working with chemicals.
Despite safety improvements in the handling of asbestos and other toxic substances, workers are still suffering injuries as a result of workplace practices.
Toxic substances can cause painful skin irritations and serious respiratory problems. Victims can suffer debilitating, life-changing and life-shortening health problems.
