The term 'industrial disease' is used to describe a condition or illness which has developed after an exposure to a dangerous substance in the workplace or unsafe working conditions.
There are many different types of industrial diseases you can develop after being exposed to hazardous substances or dangerous conditions at work. For example, Noise Induced Industrial Deafness, Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome, Occupational Asthma, Emphysema, Work-Related Dermatitis
Claims involving industrial diseases are often a lot more difficult to deal with than other types of personal injury claims. The exposure which caused the illness could have occurred a long time ago and expert evidence to prove a link between the illness and the employment will be required.
It is important that you choose an experienced disease lawyer to handle you industrial disease claim.
Please be aware that there are strict time limits imposed and it is imperative that you do not delay.
