The region has a proud history of shipbuilding and coal mining which has left an industrial legacy and a sea-faring tradition attracting people from around the region to live and work.

- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Repetitive strain injuries

- Occupational stress
- Occupational asthma
- Industrial dermatitis
Unfortunately, this category also extends to more debilitating and in some cases fatal conditions such as:

- Loss of a limb
- Occupational cancers
If you have suffered from any of the conditions mentioned or another work related injury or illness you may be entitled to compensation and should consider filling a claim through an injury solicitor in North Tyneside or other legal professional.
Why you should seek compensation
The medication and treatment required for industrial injuries and illnesses can be costly. Also such conditions may require long periods where the victim is unable to work and in the worst cases may result in them having to stop work altogether. The financial implications can therefore be severe. If possible, victims should seek compensation to help them cope.
Some very unfortunate cases, like asbestosis and occupational cancers, may result in death, leaving the victim’s family to suffer emotional and financially.
In such cases it is very important that those affected receive some form of financial compensation to help them deal with the dreadful consequences.
