Industrial Disease Solicitors for Occupational Disease Compensation Claims
If you've suffered from a work-related illness, Sheldon Davidson Solicitors can help you claim the industrial disease compensation you deserve.
An industrial disease, sometimes also referred to as an occupational disease or an industrial injury, is an illness, condition or disorder which has developed as a result of your working environment. Sadly, these types of illnesses are far from uncommon, with the Health & Safety Executive’s (HSE) figures for 2019/20 suggesting there were approximately 1.6 million people in the UK suffering from work-related ill-health. Some industrial diseases can be severe and, in some instances, can be fatal, with an estimated 12,000 deaths each year from lung disease associated with past exposures at work.

About Industrial Disease Claims
Claims for injuries caused by occupational diseases are often more complex in nature than other personal injury claims and it is therefore essential that you employ the services of an appropriately experienced solicitor to deal with your industrial disease claim.
One of the reasons industrial disease claims can be more complex than other personal injury claims is that it can often involve a detailed investigation of your working history. Sometimes, you may have moved on from the role or company that you believe was responsible for your illness and in some instances, the company you worked for may have gone out of business. In such instances, we would attempt to identify and trace the company’s insurers in order to make a claim.
We have specialist lawyers within our employers’ liability team that have a wealth of experience and expertise on how to deal with your industrial disease claim in order to secure you the maximum amount of compensation for you and your family.
