Carrs Solicitors win Occupational Asthma compensation claim

Carrs Solicitors have recently won a claim for compensation for Baker’s asthma on behalf of a client who worked at the in store bakery of a large supermarket.

The employers had failed to provide suitable personal protective equipment and had failed to install effective extraction equipment required in the dusty atmosphere where the client was required to work.

Specialist medical opinion disclosed that the client had an intolerance of some of the chemical additives used in the baking process and this had a damaging effect on the client’s health.

On service of the relevant medical evidence, we were able to secure a negotiated settlement on an amicable basis with the Defendant’s Solicitors.
