Respiratory Disease Claims for Compensation

There are many respiratory diseases that can be caused by negligent exposures at work, e.g. mesothelioma (link to asbestos forum), lung cancer (link to asbestos), asbestosis, diffuse pleural thickening, asthma, pneumoconiosis, silicosis, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chemical and carbon monoxide poisoning.

The diseases take many years to develop and can be caused by exposure at work to hazardous substances such as asbestos, isocyanates, fumes chemicals, dust, silica, carbon monoxide, flour and grain.
According to the Health and Safety Executive there are currently approximately 12,000 deaths each year due to occupational respiratory diseases.
