Industrial Disease Compensation

Exposure to dust, chemicals, noise and vibrating tools can cause injury, illness or disease.

Although there are now strict health and safety laws employers still fail to comply with their obligations. Some people suffer from industrial disease that has been caused by many years of exposure to dust, air pollutants, chemical exposure, excessive noise and vibrating tools.

BRM Solicitors can help you to claim compensation.

Common types of industrial disease include:

  • Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome¬†
    People who have worked with vibrating power tools and machinery can develop problems in their fingers, hands and arms. The most common condition is called Vibration White Finger or VWF. It is possible to claim compensation for this condition if there has been exposure after 1975
  • Hearing loss / Deafness
    Excessive and prolonged exposure to noise at work can cause hearing loss and tinnitus. Hearing loss often arises over a number of years and many people assume that it may just be a sign of getting older. Tinnitus is where noises can be heard in the ear without any external cause.
  • Respiratory Diseases
    Exposure to dust, chemicals and fumes at work, can cause several types of chest disease. BRM Solicitors is claiming compensation for hundreds of people with chest diseases caused at work such as chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and asbestos diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma.
  • Occupational Dermatitis
  • Medical conditions caused by chemical exposure

If you have suffered any medical condition caused by your work, you could be entitled to compensation.
Even if you had a close relative who has died from an industrial disease you could still make a claim for compensation.
