The village of Craster is famous for its Kippers, caught and smoked locally. Accident Advice Helpline, one of the top no win no fee* Craster injury claim solicitors in the country, knows all about occupational related respiratory disorders.
This means that if one of the herring/kipper smokers was to find themselves suffering from with breathing problems associated with their profession; we could help the victim to launch a personal injury claim for compensation.
The fall in cases of black lung disease
In the past, one of the biggest occupational related respiratory illnesses was black lung, also known as miner’s lung, a disease caused by miners who inhaled black coal dust during the course of their work duties.
With the decline of the coal mining industry, and improvements in health and safety, incidences of black lung, are greatly reduced.
The rise in cases of Mesothelioma
One of the most debilitating and potentially fatal occupational related respiratory diseases is Mesothelioma, a cancer which is associated with inhaling asbestos dust.
Mesothelioma may not be as well known to some as asbestosis, but because it is caused by much smaller levels of inhaled asbestos dust, it is becoming more prevalent, and despite improved health and safety measures, the spate of new illnesses is expected to peak during the period 2013/2016.
