Have you Suffered from an Industrial Disease?

Industrial diseases can be unfortunate consequences of working in hazardous environments such as shipyards, foundries, metal works, motor vehicle production, power stations, and factories, to name just a few.

Employers should have strict controls in place to prevent work-related illnesses from happening. However, if you have suffered an industrial injury as a result of your employer’s negligence you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.

At What’s My Claim Worth we have trained, qualified solicitors who have a wealth of experience in handling complex industrial disease claims, so you stand a much better chance of getting the industrial disease compensation you could be entitled to.

Types of Industrial Diseases

Most industrial diseases have permanent effects and many get worse over time, even if you no longer work in the environment where the conditions that caused the illness existed. In many cases, diseases do not develop until years after exposure. Examples of industrial diseases include:

  • Asbestosis, pleural thickening, mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by exposure to asbestos
  • Bladder cancer caused by chemicals such as aromatic amines
  • Industrial deafness as a result of exposure to loud noises
  • Nasal cancer caused by chemicals and wood dust
  • Asthma caused by chemicals and dust
  • Vibration White Finger (VWF) / Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) caused by handling tools such as pneumatic drills
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) caused by repetitive work
  • Dermatitis caused by chemicals or other agents in the workplace

Industrial Disease Compensation Amounts

Depending on the severity and type of injury caused, compensation amounts can vary.

Have you worked with Asbestos?

Exposure to asbestos can lead to debilitating diseases, and unfortunately workers haven’t always been properly protected from the harmful fibres.
