Respiratory and Lung Disease Claims

Our expert industrial disease specialists have represented tens of thousands of people across the UK who have developed a respiratory or lung disease as a result of their workplace conditions.

Respiratory and lung diseases, including occupational asthma, asbestosis, lung cancer and silicosis, are caused by breathing in irritants such as dust, silica and fumes.

Depending on the level of exposure, symptoms of a respiratory disease - which include a persistent cough, a fever, breathing difficulties and tiredness - can take years to develop. Although many are treatable, sadly, some respiratory diseases are fatal.

If you believe that exposure to a harmful substance has caused you or a loved one to develop a respiratory disease, it’s important to seek medical advice, so that the condition can be properly diagnosed.

Our specialist teams are experts in industrial disease cases and understand how difficult it can be for you and your loved ones to come to terms with an industrial disease diagnosis. We will work quickly to establish whether you have a valid claim for compensation and we can put you in touch with experts and support groups.
