Industrial Disease Claims

Industrial disease is an illness that an employee has contracted in their workplace. 

What counts as an Industrial Disease?

It can come in many forms, ranging from a cancer, to a skin condition, hearing loss or a lung condition. An employer is guilty of allowing employees to acquire an industrial disease if the work environment contains factors (e.g. dust, noise, fumes) that are harmful to health and the employer could have put processes or equipment in place to limit that exposure, but did not. These could include safety features such as a dust extractor or personal protection equipment such as ear defenders or safety gloves.

You can count on Abacus’ industrial disease specialist solicitors to quickly assess the strength of your claim and get the best possible compensation from the employer who allowed you to be subjected to a life-changing illness.

If you have worked in poor conditions and developed an industrial disease, we can make your employer, or former employer, accountable for their inadequate health and safety measures. This might also defend other current or future employees from becoming ill under the same circumstances, since an employer might then improve the work environment conditions on their premises in order to avoid future claims.

If your job has unfairly affected your health, a claim for industrial disease compensation can assist you with the costs of any treatment and recovery. These damages are designed to help roll back your life to the state it was in prior to the illness.
