Industrial disease compensation cases
There are a wide range of different areas that are covered by industrial disease compensation cases, including:
- Skin disease claims
- Occupational asthma claims
- Pleural thickening claims
- Respiratory disease claims
- Asbestos claims
- Mesothelioma claims
The specialist industrial disease department deals with this specific type of accident. Industrial injuries contribute to employment claims for things including mesothelioma, asbestosis and other diseases of the respiratory system. Research by the Executive of Health and Safety estimates that about three thousand people die every year because of exposure to asbestos.
In a lot of cases, industrial injuries result from exposure to substances that are unsafe. This exposure can be on going for several years. The compensation claim for an industrial injury will often involve a detailed investigation into the work injury of the person that is making the claim. There are a lot of people that are not aware that their working environment has or is causing them health problems. Some people that have worked with vibrating tools may experience numbness in their hand and this is connected to using the tools at work.

Types of back injuries in the workplace
There are a lot of different ways in which people can injury their back. The most common back problems that can happen in the workplace include:
- Tripping over things that are left sitting on the floor.
- Slipping or falling on uneven or wet surfaces.
- Prolonged carrying or lifting of heavy loads.
Some back injuries can be minor, however, in some cases the back injury will be more serious. The serious back injuries can have a significant impact on your life. Occupations such as nursing and warehouse operative can result in back problems due to the amount of lifting that is expected as part of the job.
Making a claim for work-related back pain
Regardless of the injuries that you have suffered from, if you have experienced an accident and if the pain and suffering has meant that you are unable to do hobbies, interests, or work, you will be able to claim compensation.
How much compensation can I get?
The amount of compensation that you will get varies from one case to another and each case is based on its own specific circumstances. An example of a successful case was where a man was awarded an out of court settlement of £12,000 after an accident with a forklift truck at work.
