Industrial disease will invariably result from exposure to a substance or an unsafe working practice over a period of many years. An industrial disease claim will often involve the detailed investigation of an individual’s working history.
Many industrial disease claimants are unaware that their health problems relate to their occupation. For example, those who have worked with vibrating tools may suffer numbness, pins and needles and reduced dexterity of the fingers and hands, without appreciating the connection with their occupation.
Industrial disease claims include the following injuries:
- Occupational Asthma
- Respiratory Disease
- Skin Disease
- Pleural Thickening
- Vibration White Finger
