Industrial disease will typically involve exposure in the workplace to some harmful substance, work practice or noise level over an extended period of time.
Surveys in 2015 suggest that 1.3 million working people suffer from a work-related illness with 2,542 mesothelioma deaths due to past asbestos exposures.
When you are making an industrial injury claim, you will need to be able to prove that your working environment and your employer’s negligence resulted in your condition.
If you have suffered from the following:
- Industrial deafness (noise-induced hearing loss)
- Vibration white finger
Or any other injury or disease contracted at your place of work or a result of your working environment, you may be entitled to compensation. Speak to our personal injury solicitors about making a claim.
