Employers have a duty of care to ensure their employees are working in a safe environment, when this duty is breached it can expose workers to industrial disease and injury.

The term ‘industrial disease’ is used to describe a condition or illness which has developed after exposure to a dangerous substance in the workplace or unsafe working conditions.

The six most common industrial illnesses are: hand arm vibration syndrome, industrial deafness, silicosis, asthma, latex allergies and dermatitis.

In many cases the exposure could have happened a long time ago and the company that you believe are responsible could have gone out of business. If this is the case we can still make the claim by tracing the company’s insurers. Also, you may not know when you first started suffering with the illness or condition.

At P.A. Duffy and Company our expert personal injury solicitors represent clients who have suffered from a range of diseases which have occurred as a result of their employers’ negligence.

Please note in contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
