What is an industrial disease claim?
An industrial disease claim is a type of compensation claim made for an illness that has onset as a direct result of working conditions.
Though there is plenty of legislation in place designed to help prevent employees becoming ill or injured at work, statistics reveal that in 2011–2012 there were around 1.1 million people in the UK living with a work-related illness. Examples of these illnesses include:
- Lung diseases;
- Occupational cancer;
- Hearing loss;
- Silicosis; and
- Musculoskeletal diseases.
In some cases, these illnesses can develop of their own accord. However, in cases where they have clearly developed as a direct result of negligence, the patient may be entitled to claim compensation.
