Industrial Disease Claims

The workplace can be a dangerous environment, with some industries at risk to diseases more than others. It is an employer’s duty to ensure all their staff are protected from illness while at work.


All employers are legally responsible for the safety of their employees, regardless of the industry they work in. Health and safety practices must be put in place to reduce the chance of catching a disease. If your employer has failed their duty of care by not properly assessing risks, or not providing appropriate equipment to carry out tasks, you could make a claim for compensation.

Our industrial disease solicitors have handled many cases involving diseases, such as:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Asbestos related diseases
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Noise induced hearing loss
  • Hand arm vibration syndrome
  • Vibration white finger
  • Lung disease
  • Dermatitis
  • Repetitive strain injuries


The personal injury team has helped many employees gain compensation to cover pain and suffering, loss of earnings, and medical bills. Our experience has allowed us to become leaders in the sector, and we pride ourselves on providing the best possible service to all our clients.

We know that the decision to make a claim against your employer can be a difficult one, but you do not need to worry as all businesses have insurance that covers compensation costs.
