Occupational Asthma and Respiratory Disease

Occupational Asthma and Respiratory Disease

Asbestos is not the only work related cause of respiratory disease/illness. Other substances at work can cause occupational asthma/respiratory diseases including hazardous chemicals in paint, resins, solder flux, solvents and other industrial solutions cotton dust, flour, silica in stone, the metal beryllium brick dust, coal dust, wood dust, other dust and even vegetable dusts. Such exposures can lead to an allergic reaction and occupational asthma/other respiratory diseases, including silicosis, berylliosis, rhinitis, sinusitis, byssinosis (brown lung), chronic obstructive airways disease and emphysema.

We also specialise in these respiratory disease claims, offering a free initial consultation.

We work on a "no win-no fee" and will pay your legal expenses up front for you.

Workers most at risk from occupational asthma/other respiratory conditions include:

  • welders
  • paint sprayers
  • carpenters and other construction workers
  • cable engineers recovering old copper cables
  • demolition workers
  • textile workers
  • bakers and flour confectioners

Where a chest physician confirms that a condition has been caused by such exposure there will very often be a good compensation claim, particularly under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations.
