Industrial Disease

What is an industrial disease?

An industrial disease is an illness that an employee has contracted while going about their daily work duties. It can come in many forms, ranging from a cancer, to a skin condition, hearing loss or a lung condition.

What can I claim for?

If your employer failed to take the appropriate steps to minimise potential hazards and you are suffering with an industrial disease as a result, you may be entitled compensation. The following industrial diseases are most common in the UK:

  • Asbestos
    • Asbestosis
    • Mesothelioma
    • Pleural Thickening
  • Noise-induced hearing loss
    • Industrial deafness
    • Acoustic shock
    • Tinnitus
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries
    • Vibration White Finger
    • Miner's Beat Knee
    • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
    • Tennis Elbow (Epicodylitis)
