Industrial Disease Claims

Industrial Disease Compensation Claims

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 cancer caused by asbestos.

More than 2,500 people in the UK died from mesothelioma in 2020.

The dangers of asbestos are widely known, but this dangerous material was used for many years and is still common across the UK. Some other diseases caused by asbestos are

  • Asbestosis
  • Lung cancer

The effects of asbestos exposure may not be seen for many decades.  If you were exposed to asbestos as part of your work and have seen your doctor because of mesothelioma, asbestos, lung cancer or breathing difficulty, contact us for advice.

Claiming Compensation for an Industrial Disease

If you believe a disease you’ve contracted could be linked to the conditions at your place of work, you could be eligible to claim for compensation.

All cases dealt with by Coles Miller are conducted on a No Win No Fee basis – so there is no financial risk to you in the unlikely event that your claim does not succeed. This is sometimes referred to as a Conditional Fee Arrangement.
