What does your industrial disease compensation cover?

Industrial diseases affect more than just your health; they can also have an impact on your family and future earning potential.

As a result, it’s vital you seek the compensation you’re due to cover things like:
  • General damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity
  • Psychological injuries
  • Treatment fees
  • Future loss of earnings
It’s important to get a diagnosis of a reportable disease from your doctor, detailing any new symptoms or the significant worsening of existing symptoms. This applies to you whether you’re employed or self-employed.

Asbestos Compensation

Asbestos compensation is common when it comes to industrial disease claims as it was first used in the 1700’s and in the industrial revolution. It was used to insulate pipes, manufacturing textiles and in the shipping industry and it was only in the 1920’s that people made the connection between asbestos and lung problems. Those working in construction are at high risk of coming into contact with asbestos as it is still in many buildings.
