If you think you are suffering from any asbestos and work related diseases, it is important to seek advice as soon as you can

Asbestos and work related diseases – Exposure to asbestos can cause a range of illnesses, such as Asbestosis, some of which can be extremely serious, even by living close to asbestos factories or washing the work clothes of a loved one who worked there, could cause health problems. Very often, people who have been exposed to asbestos are unaware of the damage that has been done to their bodies until they start experiencing worrying symptoms many years later.


Many people are also affected each year by exposure to chemicals, fumes, noise and vibrations which again can cause serious illness. If you think you have contracted a disease caused by the nature of your work then you may be able to make an industrial injury claim against your employer if they are at fault and you may be entitled to receive industrial disease compensation for:

  • previous and future pain or suffering, particularly if your condition is deteriorating
  • required care as a result of your Personal Illness and anticipated loss of earnings
  • purchases required to make life easier, e.g. stair lifts etc.

We recognise that, if you’re suffering from any of the above related illness’ including Asbestosis and Mesothelioma, you have enough to worry about, that’s where we help and manage your compensation claim, keeping you informed at all times.
