SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
The term "Industrial Disease" is used to refer to a group of illnesses caused by the working environment.

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.
