Have you developed an illness or disease that could have been caused by your previous employment? Working conditions in coal mines, brickworks and potteries previously were not as safe as they are today, and many people were exposed to dangerous substances that are now known to cause industrial diseases.
If you’ve developed a disease, there’s a strong chance it could be linked to your previous employment, and you could be eligible to make a compensation claim in Swadlincote.
It is widely known today that workers in coal mines, brickworks and potteries were previously exposed to health hazards and unsafe working conditions. Sadly, exposures to toxic substances- for example, coal dust and clay dust – have led to thousands of people developing industrial diseases in later life. Some common diseases that people develop after working in these occupations are:
- Silicosis – also called miner’s asthma and potter’s rot
- Pulmonary Fibrosis
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
- Occupational Hearing Loss.
If you or a member of your family has contracted an occupational disease, you have an extremely strong chance to make a successful compensation claim in Swadlincote. In addition, if someone you love has died from an industrial disease, you could be able to make a compensation claim on their behalf so that you and your family are secure in the future.
