What is an industrial disease?

An industrial disease (sometimes known as an occupational disease) usually develops from exposure to harmful chemicals, substances, noise, or repetitive work. For example, Mesothelioma is a fatal lung disease caused by exposure to asbestos. Workers, particularly in the barber, hairdresser, and textile industries who were exposed to some aromatic amines have done on to develop bladder cancer.

Is it hard to claim compensation for occupational disease?

One of the biggest challenges when claiming compensation for an industrial disease is linking an employer’s negligent act or omission which exposed the Claimant to the harmful chemical or substance to the Claimant’s current illness. This is because many industrial diseases do not develop until years after the initial exposure to the chemical or substance. It can be difficult, therefore, to trace the original employer and/or their insurers.

At Adam Law Solicitors we relentlessly pursue all available avenues to find the relevant insurer, including:

  • the ELTO Employers’ Liability Tracing Office (ELTO)
  • historical company records
  • newspapers and trade publications

We have a robust track record of quickly establishing the relevant insurance company and successfully winning compensation for our clients.

What is noise-induced hearing loss?

Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most common industrial disease claims. It occurs when the hair cells in the ear, specifically the cochlea, are damaged because of noise exposure, typically above 70 decibels, over a period of time.

Signs that you may be suffering from noise-induced hearing loss include:

  • A feeling of pressure or fullness in the ear.
  • Believing people are mumbling when they are actually talking normally.
  • Tinnitus.
  • Inability to hear high pitched sounds.

Our highly-skilled, compassionate Industrial Disease lawyers can assist you through the process of claiming compensation and will provide you with the legal advice and representation you need to achieve the highest award possible.
