Miners’ Black Lung Compensation: Can You Claim For Past Exposure?

Do you still have time to claim compensation for Miners’ Black Lung?

The coal mining industry in England, Wales and Scotland has dies down significantly over the past few decades, but miners exposed to coal dust day in day out might be suffering from a number of breathing disorders including Black Lung (coal miners’ pneumoconiosis), Emphysema, Chronic Bronchitis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) and Lung Cancer.

Despite exposure to this harsh working environment many years ago – if you are suffering from a lung disease it is quite possible there is still time to claim from your former employer. The question of how long you have to claim is complicated and will often depend upon your date of knowledge of your condition and that such condition could have been caused by exposure to inhalation of coal dust in the working environment.

My website has details on how to claim and amounts of compensation for all manner of industrial diseases for miners including black lung, hand arm vibration, vwf and industrial deafness.

    I worked for 35years on the Gold mining operations. I was warned for years about the Tiesus ( Black lung disease). I wish to know how I can go about Claiming for Compensation. What forms do I need to fill in and where do I need to send them to.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.
