Industrial diseases


Making a claim for industrial diseases

Industrial diseases and illnesses affect people all over the United Kingdom, typically as a result of exposure to dangerous materials and poor working conditions in the course of their work. Industrial diseases covers a wide range of different illnesses, which depend on the type of environment you may work in, the conditions you face while working, the substances that you come into contact with while working, and so on. Industrial illnesses include:

  • Respiratory diseases, including asthma
  • Noise-related illness
  • Illness caused by chemical fumes
  • Dust-related illnesses
  • Asbestos illnesses
  • Cancer and mesothelioma
  • As well as many more.

Your employer has an obligation by law to ensure that the workplace is as safe as possible to work in, in accordance with U.K. law. This means that they must take every reasonable precaution to ensure that you and other employees can work as safely as possible. When an employer neglects this, and the health and safety of their employees is negatively impacted as a result, they have breached their duty of care towards their workers – meaning it is possible for a worker to make a claim against them

If you are successful in winning your claim, you can gain compensation for the injuries you suffered, as well as for the negative costs and expenses you incurred as a result of your industrial disease or illness. In most cases, claims must be begun within three years of being injured – but in the case of industrial disease, where this may be difficult to establish, you have three years from the date of your diagnosis.
