    Perhaps you have developed an industrial or occupational disease and have recently been diagnosed by your doctor. If this is the case, did you know that you could have grounds to make a personal injury claim against your employer? If you are self-employed and have worked in industrial premises where you have been exposed to hazardous materials, then you may also have a claim against them, as employers have a responsibility for the safety of employees and visitors to their premises.

    Some occupational diseases

    Many people, all over the UK have had an asbestos-related disease, and there have been many successful personal injury claims cases. Successful claims have been made by shipyard workers, people in the construction industry and members of the armed forces, for example.

    Emphysema is another occupational disease which is associated with coal mining in particular, but which can also affect workers in other industries.

    If your hearing ability has deteriorated over a period of years, then you could have a claim for industrial deafness, or noise induced hearing loss as it is also called. This could have occurred because you worked in a very noisy environment and were not given appropriate ear defenders.

    There are many examples of other illnesses which have been caused by a poor or hazardous working environment, when employers have failed to provide their employees with the appropriate training or protective clothing which could have prevented them from contracting the disease.

    Employers have a legal responsibility to keep their employees safe and failure to do this may be construed as negligence.
