Industrial diseases are often caused by exposure to a substance or an unsafe working practice over a period of years.
Many industrial disease claimants are unaware that their health problems relate to their occupation. For example, people who have worked with vibrating tools may suffer numbness, pins & needles, and reduced dexterity of the fingers and hands without understanding the link to their occupation.
Our personal injury claim lawyers have successfully handled substantial claims for industrial disease and workplace illness in cases involving:
- Vibration white finger
- Repetitive strain injury
- Respiratory diseases
- Skin diseases
- Industrial deafness and tinnitus.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimate that approximately three thousand workers die each year from diseases such as mesothelioma as a result of exposure to asbestos products.
