Industrial disease: find out all about the most common types of industrial disease, the amounts of compensation you can claim for each, how to prove an employer’s legal liability for specific types of occupational injury with free online legal help.
What is the process for claiming compensation for industrial disease?
Industrial disease and occupational injury will typically involve exposure in the workplace over an extended period of time to some harmful substance, work practice or noise level.
Industrial disease may take the form of lung problems (such as mesothelioma, silicosis, black lung); hearing disorders (such as industrial deafness, tinnitus); skin problems (such as contact dermatitis) or hand arm disorders (such as vibration white finger, hand arm vibration or repetitive strain injury), etc.
Although it is true to say that a compensation claim for each type of industrial disease will have some unique aspects to it – it is also true to say that the procedure for claiming for each has some similarities.
