Advice For You

Industrial Diseases

If you think you are suffering from a work-related illness, or have worked in noisy premises, or have breathing difficulties that may be associated with your occupation, you may be entitled to industrial illness compensation.

There are a variety of industrial diseases, meaning a disorder or illness which has developed after exposure to a dangerous substance in the workplace or an unsafe working environment.

If you're suffering from an illness that is related to your working conditions and a link between your working environment and your current medical condition can be established Pearson Solicitors can make a workplace compensation claim on your behalf.

Types of Industrial Illness Claims include:

  • Asbestosis
  • Industrial Deafness
  • Vibration White Finger
  • Respiratory Diseases
  • Occupational Health Issues such as stress, asthma, lung diseases
  • Skin Conditions
  • Repetitive Strain Injury

Exposure could have occurred a long time ago and in a former job, you may now work in another industry or be retired.  In cases like this we will seek expert evidence to prove a link between your illness and the employment.

Don’t delay – there are time restrictions in place when making your claim so it advisable to speak to one of our specialist solicitors as soon as possible.

In English law in most cases you must make an industrial disease claim within three years from the date you first linked your illness to your working environment, or three years from the beginning of your symptoms.
