    No win no fee from St Levan when claiming compensation for industrial diseases

    An industrial disease is a disease which you might develop as a result of working conditions.  These diseases and conditions often arise out of prolonged contact to hazardous materials, whether this be skin contact or by breathing them in.  Such contact can result in skin conditions such as dermatitis, or breathing problems such as asthma.

    Regardless of the sort of industrial disease you have developed, or how serious it is injury solicitors can help you make a claim for financial compensation against the employer that you believe is responsible for the condition with no win no fee from St Levan.

    Acute silicosis

    An injury lawyer specialising in no win no fee from St Levan can help you make a claim against your employer if you have been diagnosed with acute silicosis.

    Acute silicosis is an industrial disease which is often present in people who have been exposed to large amounts of silica over relatively short periods of time.  Symptoms of the condition include having low levels of oxygen in the blood stream and occasionally the lungs filling with fluid, making it increasingly difficult to breathe.

    Silica itself is a natural mineral which is found to naturally occur in rocks.  Therefore, anyone working with rocks, stones and sand, could be at risk from breathing in the dust and developing acute silicosis.

    Employers’ responsibility

    All employers have a duty of care and responsibility towards their members of staff.  This means that legally they have to do everything within their power to ensure that staff are kept safe whilst they are performing their work related tasks, and while they are on work property.

    If an employer fails in this responsibility then they could be held liable if a worker is injured in any way.  It is this duty of care responsibility that enables lawyers familiar with no win no fee from St Levan to make a claim against an employer if you have been injured in a work place accident, or have been diagnosed with an industrial disease.

    In the case of acute silicosis an employer should be aware of the risks presented from being exposed to the silica dust, and should therefore take the necessary steps to minimise these risks.  This could include providing staff with suitable training to make them aware of the ways they can minimise exposure, as well as providing suitable personal protection equipment in the form of face masks.  Risk assessments should also be completed for all members of staff working in these conditions.
