What is an Industrial Disease?

An industrial disease is any illness caused or made worse by work. Many industries are particularly high-risk, such as construction, engineering, mining and metal/foundry works.

Symptoms of some of these conditions can take many years to become noticeable, so you may not know exactly where you were put at risk, and if you do, the company responsible may no longer be trading.

However, we’re experts at tracing those responsible and maintain a database of companies and their insurers. So even if you were exposed to harm at work a long time ago and the company responsible isn’t now in business, we may still be able to help you.

Our Industrial Disease Solicitors have the expertise to make the difference between winning or losing a case, and maximising the amount of compensation you can be awarded.

FAQs about Industrial Disease Claims

Each industrial disease claim is unique, so to value your claim, we’ll have to take a detailed look at your individual situation. However, compensation will cover factors such as:

  • The severity of your illness
  • How much support and rehabilitation you need
  • Loss of earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses

We want you to start on the road to recovery without delay. So if the other party admits partial or full liability (fault) and they’re insured, we can apply for Interim Payments of compensation for you early on.

That means you can cover urgent costs such as regular household expenses, outstanding debts and mobility equipment without having to wait for legal proceedings to end.

Industrial disease claims can often be funded through a No Win, No Fee agreement, just ask us for details.
