Work Related Chest Diseases

Specialist Pulmonary Disease Solicitors

If you have a pulmonary disease or chest related illness which you believe may be related to your work, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation on a No Win No Fee basis.

Respiratory health claims are traditionally associated with occupations such as mining and manufacturing. Workers in the chemical industry and in milling and baking are also susceptible to industrial disease caused by airborne sensitising agents at work. Chest related illnesses cause breathing difficulties and can affect your quality of life and your ability to work. Making a compensation claim can help ease any financial difficulties which may occur as a result of your industrial illness.

Your employer has a duty to ensure that you work in a safe environment and that you have adequate safety equipment and protective clothing to safeguard you from exposure to harmful substances while you work. They also have to make regular assessments to ensure that safety procedures are followed and that protective equipment is in full working order. If you have contracted a work-related chest disease because your employer failed to meet health and safety requirements or was negligent in some way, then you should speak to a specialist work-related illness solicitor to find out if you can make a work-related illness compensation claim.

Carrs Solicitors specialise in work related injury and ill health claims including respiratory conditions such as Pneumoconiosis, Silicosis, Asbestosis, Asthma, Emphysema, Chronic Obstructive Airways Disease or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
