The term "Industrial Disease" is used to refer to a group of illnesses caused by the working environment. For instance this could be due to exposure to harmful chemicals or substances such as Asbestos. It could also be as a result of unsafe working practices that might cause an injury to develop over a period of time. These are sometimes called Repetitive Strain Injuries.
Common types of UK industrial disease compensation claims include:
If you develop an illness or condition which you believe was caused by work, it is vital that you get medical advice immediately. If your doctor confirms your illness may be work related you should then seek legal advice about possible compensation and entitlement to benefits.
For a successful industrial disease compensation claim it will be necessary to establish that the condition is more likely to be work related than not, and then to show that your employer has failed in their duty to take reasonable care for your health and safety.
At Forbes Solicitors we know that industrial disease claims are not easy or straight forward. The first step in claiming compensation is to contact one of our Personal Injury Solicitors that specialises in work related disease claims for a free consultation.
If we believe that your industrial disease claim is likely to be successful we will offer you a complete No Win No Fee agreement, handle every aspect of the legal process and work to secure you maximum financial compensation.

I have found all the staff and the solicitors that I have seen have been very kind, thoughtful and very helpful. I cannot praise them enough and I would not go to anyone else at all.
Easy, regular and relevant communications both written and orally.
The entire process from my claim being taken was dealt with in a highly professional and more importantly timely manner.
I have used Forbes when pursuing a claim for a friend, along with every other legal matter I have been involved in, both personally and professionally. I cannot rate Forbes highly enough.
My Solicitor always returned my calls promptly and set my mind at rest about all of my concerns. Thank you!
I was extremely happy with David Mayor. Absolutely excellent in every way. Thank you.
Very satisfied with everything. Very helpful would recommend you to my friends.
Robin Bower and his secretary were very easy to talk to and always friendly.
John was fantastic through the whole process giving clear, sound advice.
I was very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Forbes Solicitors to anyone in the future.
The legal process can be difficult, complicated and very testing. I was involved in a contested claim against 2 Defendants and Leonie helped me through every step of the way through to trial.
I am happy with the way things progressed, the service was professional, quick, and my solicitor Leonie Millard was very approachable and explained things well.
I approached John Myles when I was at rock bottom and felt that I had exhausted every possibility of proving my case.
The service I received far exceeded my expectations.
As a person who is unaware of the law, I never felt at anytime overwhelmed, as your dealings with me were clear and professional. This has been very much appreciated.
