Work related illness
Every day, millions of people around the UK go to work. While there, it is the responsibility of your employer to ensure you are kept safe. But, unfortunately, sometimes things go wrong.
The Labour Force Survey estimates that 1.3 million people who worked in 2015-16, were suffering from an illness they believed was caused or made worse by work.
These work related illnesses include:
- Hearing loss
- Asbestos related conditions such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Vibration injury
- Work related cancer
- Respiratory illness
- Skin disease
If you have suffered an industrial illness, we can help. Our expert lawyers will investigate your claim on a no win, no fee basis and without any obligation to proceed. If your illness was caused by an employer who is no longer in business, our solicitors can still help you claim.
