In many industrial disease claims it has been proven that employer’s knew about the health risks but failed to protect their employees.

How to Claim Compensation for Industrial Disease

Contact us with the details about the illness and about your type of work. We’ll need to know when the illness or disease was first diagnosed, and if anyone else was affected because they may be able to provide evidence to support your claim.

When we have the details a Personal Injury Solicitor that specialises in work related disease compensation will evaluate your claim on a No Win No Fee basis and we can tell you how successful your claim is likely to be. The amounts of compensation paid-out vary from case to case, but you can use our personal injury compensation calculator as a general guide until we have assessed your case.

Compensation can be claimed for pain and suffering, for lost pay and out-of-pocket expenses, for medical treatments, rehabilitation and the equipment needed to assist recovery.
