Respiratory and Lung Disease Claims
Our expert industrial disease specialists have secured respiratory compensation for 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, such as occupational asthma, asbestosis, lung cancer and silicosis are caused by breathing in irritants e.g. dust, silica and fumes.
Depending on the level of exposure, symptoms of a respiratory disease – which can 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. It’s estimated that around 12,000 deaths each year are due to a work-related respiratory disease.
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.
