Our Occupational Illness Compensation Services

An occupational illness is a disease or condition that develops as a result of working in a hazardous and unsafe environment. Exposure to dust, chemicals, noise, vibrations and fumes at work can cause suffering and severe illnesses. If your doctor has told you that you’re suffering from an illness caused by work, you may be able to make a claim for occupational illness compensation.

Our team of occupational illness solicitors can help and support you. We have extensive experience managing occupational illness claims and securing compensation for our clients. We can provide you with advice on how to claim, assessing the impact your illness is having on your life. Most importantly, we can support you throughout your claim to ensure that you obtain the occupational illness compensation you deserve, even if the company you worked for is no longer in business.

Types of Occupational Illnesses

Occupational illnesses can vary and are generally split into three separate categories; physical, biological and chemical. The types of occupational illness cases we’ve worked on include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Mesothelioma
  • Viral hepatitis (infected blood)

Skilled Occupational Illness Solicitors

Our occupational illness solicitors start putting together your claim by gathering details about your employment history and how long you were exposed to the hazardous and harmful working environment. We’ll also obtain any medical records to support the fact that your condition was caused as a result of negligence at work.

We’ll also ask you about your financial situation and put together a list of losses and expenses you wish to claim in relation to your case. Your case will then be handed to the insurer, who will carry out their own investigation. Once liability has been established, we’ll begin negotiating the terms of your compensation.

For each step of the process, we’ll keep you informed and updated.
