An occupational illness or industrial disease includes injury or illness resulting from something you may have come into contact with at work, or as a result of working practices. To name a few examples, respiratory diseases, noise related conditions, repetitive strain injury (RSI), skin reactions and work place stress.
Some of the most common industrial illness is those causing breathing difficulties such as:
- Asbestos lung cancer
- Occupational/industrial asthma
Particularly dangerous environments include ship building, mining, railway engineering, foundries, steel production or other metal works, motor vehicle production, construction, carpentry, textiles, power stations, rubber or latex production.
The effect on yourself or families can be devastating when you learn you are suffering from an occupational illness or disease. Such injuries usually involve you having to take time off of work and considerable amounts of medical treatment. At Harris Fowler we have over 20 years of experience dealing with such claims and handle them quickly and sensitively.
