Industrial Diseases

At Clear Answers you will have accident compensation claim advice from lawyers who, we believe, acted successfully in the most significant recent claim concerning legislation about illness from chemicals in the work environment.

We are the most experienced personal injury law firm in the country. Our expertise allows us to take and win difficult cases such as the one below.

If you are unlucky enough to suffer illness, disease or injury as a result of something in the environment, it is possible that you may have a claim.

If this occurs at work, there are a number of regulations which can apply, for example the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations. We believe these cases are now a lot easier to succeed in since our landmark breakthrough case Dugmore v Swansea NHS Trust (2003).

We also use our industrial disease section to cover any long term occupational illness through exposure to work conditions which has caused this injury. That includes, for example vibration white finger or hearing loss claims or latex injury claims such as dermatitis or asthma.

Nurse develops serious skin disease through exposure to chemicals in NHS Theatre

An experienced senior nurse who has held responsible positions in hospitals in the UK and abroad, our client reluctantly sought our expert legal advice when she was unable to continue in her chosen field of nursing.

Although the NHS Trust accepted our client's claim for her occupational disease, their insurers refused to negotiate an acceptable sum in compensation. We were forced to issue court proceedings but continued to enter into robust negotiations. We were successful in winning several thousand pounds in compensation prior to the trial date.

If you believe that you are suffering an illness, disease or injury as a result of something in the environment, always keep any evidence to support the exposure, make sure that you seek medical advice and that your treating doctors are made aware of your belief / suspicion of the cause and keep details of all doctors visited and treatments, and for any injury related expenses.
