How Thompsons Solicitors can help you make an industrial disease claim

There are many types of industrial diseases that can develop after exposure to dangerous substances in the workplace or unsafe working conditions. 

Examples of industrial diseases include respiratory and lung disease, skin disease, vibration injuries and occupational cancer, including asbestos-related diseases. The six most common industrial illnesses are hand vibration syndrome, industrial deafness, silicosis, asthma, latex allergies, and dermatitis. 

At Thompsons Solicitors, we have experienced teams of industrial disease solicitors based across the UK and we have run more industrial disease cases than any other law firm. Thompsons has led the way in industrial disease claims, running the test cases that established much of the law today.

What you need to know about industrial disease claims

What is an industrial disease?

An industrial disease is a condition or illness caused by exposure to dangerous substances or unsafe conditions in the workplace. Some employees with a pre-existing condition may also find their symptoms worsen because of an employer's poor health and safety. 

Can I make an industrial disease claim?

Employers have a duty of care to their employees to protect their health, safety and wellbeing. If they fail in that role, and you are injured or fall ill as a result, you may be entitled to make an industrial disease claim.

Industrial disease claims are often more complicated than other personal injury claims. The cause of the illness or injury could have occurred years earlier and expert evidence may be needed to prove a link between the illness and employment. For this reason, it is important that you choose an experienced solicitor when deciding to make an industrial disease claim.
