Asthma caused by flour or grain

We have vast experience of claims for occupational asthma caused by flour or grain, through decades of work representing millers and bakers. We have access to experts who can give an opinion to the court as to the likely cause of injury and have successfully enforced the relevant law, namely the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (otherwise known as the COSHH Regulations) against employers in the Court of Appeal.

Anyone who has experienced, or suspects they may have experienced, exposure to an irritant which has brought about or heightened the onset of asthma in the course of carrying out their work may be entitled to compensation for asthma.

Industrial disease compensation for factory worker

As a result of exposure to excessive levels of dust and dry powder products, such as flour, this client developed occupational asthma which meant he was forced to leave his employment, with limited opportunities in the open labour market for alternative work.

Although the defendant admitted both liability for our client’s exposure, and the resulting diagnosis of occupational asthma, their insurers refused to negotiate an acceptable settlement.

Claiming compensation for asthma caused by flour or grain

Our industrial disease lawyers specialising in asthma in the workplace, are able to help explain the ways in which asthma can be caused by exposure to flour or grain and brought on or worsened by that work. They can help identify how it may have impacted on your life and family, and may even have had an impact on your ability to work at all.

Based on this, and on their detailed understanding of the difficulties that work related asthma may have on your future life, our asthma lawyers will be able to provide expert legal advice about bringing a compensation claim for asthma compensation in the most appropriate way possible.

If a deceased family member is suspected of dying as a result of work-related asthma, aggravated by irritants encountered in the workplace, you may be able to claim compensation on behalf of the estate after their death.
