Industrial diseases are medical conditions or injuries resulting from a long-term exposure to an occupational hazard. More than 70 diseases are covered by the Government’s Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit scheme, including:
- Asbestos-related diseases
- Occupational deafness
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Stress-related illnesses.
Many people don’t even know they are suffering from an industrial disease until they are retired. Irrespective of whether you are still in employment or not, MoneyBright can put you in touch with specialist solicitors who can help you to make industrial disease claims.
