Emphysema is a lung disease commonly associated with smoking, but it can be caused by a number of other things as well. If you are suffering from this disease due to conditions at work, you may be able to make a claim for industrial illnesses in Brynaman.
Working around dusty or smoky conditions can lead to emphysema if the right precautions are not taken. It is the responsibility of the employer to provide personal protective equipment to reduce the risk of employees inhaling harmful substances that can lead to this disease. If they have neglected to do this and you have been diagnosed with emphysema, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim.
The symptoms of this lung disease can make everyday life difficult, and include fatigue, trouble breathing and dizziness. If you are living with these and other serious consequences of emphysema and believe your employer to be at fault, seek compensation with help from Accident Advice Helpline.
