Industrial Disease

Specialist Industrial Disease Solicitors

Industrial Disease is a condition which is caused by or contributed to by the conditions of your employment. There are many types of industrial disease but probably the most obvious and high profile ones include asbestos related diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma.

Other types of industrial disease can include:

  • Injuries caused by repetitive use of the arms
  • Injuries caused by repetitive movements without breaks
  • Industrial deafness and tinnitus
  • Skin diseases
  • Vibration white finger

The Health and Safety Executive continue to monitor the wellbeing of workers in the workplace. In the case of asbestosis related conditions in particular, it is acknowledged that many workers exposed to asbestos 10, 20 or 30 years ago are only now aware that they have suffered a personal injury as a result of exposure to asbestos.

Rogers & Norton are able to act in relation to all claims. We can advise you of your rights to pursue the case even though your disease may have been suffered many years ago. It may be you have only just become medically aware of the condition and the possibility of bringing a claim. This is particularly so in the case of industrial disease personal injury claims involving exposure to asbestos and loud noises in the workplace.

As a result of industrial disease cases often arising from exposure to substances or a history of unsafe working practices over many years, the claims will often involve a significant investigation of your working history. At Rogers & Norton we will fully investigate all aspects, together with ascertaining whether there are insurers in place to compensate you for the personal injury suffered as a result of the industrial disease.

Unlike many personal injury cases, in the case of an industrial disease it is not sufficient to simply show that the injuries arose as a result of the employer’s negligence or breach of statutory duty. It is also necessary to demonstrate that personal injury has arisen as a consequence of the work or exposure that is being alleged.

Rogers & Norton’s talented and knowledgeable team have many years’ experience handling industrial disease cases. They ensure that everyone is dealt with the expertise, care and understanding that their case merits.

Rogers & Norton will ensure that the case is advanced in line with the disease protocol which exists between solicitors and insurers.

It is very important that were you become aware of an industrial disease which may give rise to a claim such as asbestos exposure, respiratory problems, skin diseases, hearing loss or tinnitus and vibration white finger that you seek early advice from an expert lawyer such as Rogers & Norton.
