Crewe and Ely's Experts For Industrial Disease Claims

Industrial diseases can be contracted as a result of an unsatisfactory working environment. They include injuries to the skin, respiratory system, muscles, nerves and tendons. If you’re suffering from an industrial disease, Bentley Solicitors can help you.

Helping You Get Industrial Disease Compensation

Industrial diseases develop after prolonged exposure to an unsafe working environment. While the symptoms of an industrial disease can be immediately apparent, they often lay dormant for many years before having an effect on you. Regardless of when your symptoms began, you’re still entitled to make a claim and Bentley Solicitors can help you.

Our industrial disease solicitors will give you expert legal advice and asses the value of your compensation. We understand that learning you have an industrial disease can be frightening and make you anxious about the future. However, obtaining industrial disease compensation can be the first step in your recovery, helping to alleviate your financial worries and give you the freedom to plan your next steps.

Types of Industrial Diseases

If you have any of the below illnesses, you’re entitled to make an industrial disease claim.

  • Noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus
  • Hand arm vibration syndrome, vibration white finger, carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Asbestos related illness including mesothelioma
  • Occupational asthma
  • Occupational dermatitis
  • Occupational cancers
  • Work related upper limb disorder, repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Respiratory disease

Trusted Industrial Disease Solicitors

As we mentioned before, illnesses like vibrating hand tool syndrome and asbestos-related conditions can lay dormant for some time. Prolonged exposure to vibrating hand tools can lead to serious nerve damage, numbness, and reduced mobility in the fingers, hands and arms. Meanwhile, exposure to asbestos can lead to asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.

In either situation, the effects may not become apparent until years or even decades after you’ve ceased working in the dangerous environment, but you still have grounds to make a claim. If you have an industrial disease of this nature, our solicitors will take the necessary steps to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Through obtaining your medical records and proving negligence on the part of your employer, our solicitors will help you make your case.
