Claiming Occupational and Industrial Disease Compensation

An occupational illness or industrial disease refers to an illness or disease that you have contracted because of your employment. Your condition might be caused by exposure to chemicals, vibrations, repetitive movements or loud noises but there are any number of potential causes of occupational illnesses and industrial diseases.

At Macks Solicitors, we have a team of highly experienced personal injury lawyers who are specialists in occupational and industrial disease claims. Our team has represented thousands of clients over the past 25 years, helping secure the compensation needed to rebuild lives disrupted by occupational or industrial disease.

Occupational and Industrial Disease Law

The Health and Safety at Work Act says an employer owes a duty of care to their employees. An employer must take steps to protect their employees from any health risks presented caused by their employment. 

Occupational and Industrial Disease Ailments

When you are working in a potentially dangerous environment, such as a power plant or coal mine, there are clear risks to the health of employees. However, occupational and industrial diseases are not limited to high-risk employment, so if you are not certain if your medication condition could be related to your employment you should talk to our friendly and expert occupational and industrial disease solicitors who will be happy to answer your questions about a potential claim.

Some of the most common ailments experienced by people who have experienced occupational and industrial diseases include:

  • Asbestos disease and various lung conditions caused by exposure to asbestos fibres, including mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening
  • Asthma, respiratory illnesses and lung disease from exposure to irritants that cause asthma, asbestosis and lung cancer
  • Noise-induced hearing loss and deafness including tinnitus and vertigo from exposure to loud noises in the workplace
  • Stress related occupational illness and bullying/harassment claims
  • Occupational cancers caused by hazardous materials, such as dust and chemicals
  • Skin conditions and dermatitis from repeated exposure to chemicals and biological agents and other harmful substances.

Employment and Industrial Disease Claims

Many claimants are understandably anxious about their employment and losing their job if they bring a claim. You have employment rights and an employer cannot sack you for pursuing a claim. If you have concerns about your treatment at work, our employment law team can help ensure your rights are protected.

If you have changed employer then you can still bring an industrial disease claim against a former employer but it is best to get expert legal advice as soon as you can because of the time limitations for bringing a claim.

How Macks Can Help

We will thoroughly explore your case and determine the best course of action that is tailored to your specific needs.

We will also discuss the funding arrangement that best suits your situation and provide you with practical advice.

Client Testimonials

Two departments one fantastic service

Frank, could I just take a moment to thank you for everything you and Jayne have done. Throughout the whole experience, I was guided by yourself and on occasions, it became quite complicated with my situation however I must express how professional you are and how well you navigated and negotiated the final outcome. Also, Jayne was always a pleasure to speak with and again professional and communicative at every stage.  Without a doubt the best Solicitors practice I have ever dealt with the results Macks Solicitors get, speak for themselves.

A positive outcome in a complex case

Rebecca Montague Dealt with my claim and right from our first conversation she made me feel confident that she would do her best for me. Rebecca was genuinely interested to find out how I actually felt about each stage of the case and I was involved from start to finish. If Rebecca was off any query I had would be dealt with by her colleague or secretary. I have had an extremely positive relationship with this firm and was lucky in that I had a positive outcome in a complex case but this is not the reason I rate this firm a 5. I can only speak from experience and so Rebecca and her team get a 5 because it was always about me and they didn’t give up when things got difficult. Thank you I would have no hesitation in using your firm again.
