Industrial Disease Claims Leicester
Industrial disease is a term that can be applied to a wide range of ailments, illnesses, conditions, and diseases that have occurred to working conditions.
In most cases it will occur where the claimant has been exposed to dangerous materials, chemicals, and substances in their workplace – asbestos being a very common and well-known example.
Some lawyers refer to this compensation types as occupational disease claims, but they all fall under the same legal process when it comes to claiming for industrial disease compensation.
The types of industrial diseases that our solicitors can help you or your family with include, but are not limited to:
- Asbestos, asbestosis, and mesothelioma (exposure to fibres)
- Lung disease claims and cancers
- Silicosis from inhaling silica or quartz dust
- Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
- Industrial deafness and hearing loss
- Vibration white finger
- Industrial dermatitis
- Industrial injuries
- Occupational asthma
- Occupational stress
- Many forms of workplace injury including construction
If you believe that you or a family member have suffered from any of these complaints then you must act now. Our solicitors will advise you each step of the way so you know what medical support you might need, as well as any support groups.
We will concentrate our efforts on ensuring that you receive the maximum industrial disease compensation available, and can support anybody living or working in the Leicester and Leicestershire area.
It’s important to note that just because you yourself were not directly exposed to toxic materials, it doesn’t mean you cannot claim. There are multiple documented examples where family members of workers who were exposed to asbestos have also been affected. Call today to find out more.
