The term ‘industrial disease’ is used to refer to a group of illnesses caused by the working environment, either through inhalation of or exposure to harmful chemicals and substances such as asbestos, or through defective, mismanaged work practices.

Common Industrial Disease Claims
If you are unsure whether your disease qualifies as an industrial disease, it is always best to consult a doctor for a full diagnosis. A doctor should also be capable of speculating on the cause of your disease.
At Farleys, we handle a great many industrial disease claims on behalf of clients throughout the UK. Some of the more common claims relate to:
- Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) such as vibration white finger
- Occupational asthma and respiratory illnesses
- Mesothelioma claims
- Asbestos related diseases
- Occupational deafness and other hearing problems
- Pneumoconiosis – an occupational lung disease caused by dust inhalation
If you are suffering from any of the above industrial diseases or injuries, you may be eligible to make a claim for financial compensation. To do so, you will be required to demonstrate that another individual, be they a manager or fellow employee, or the company in general, is responsible for your development of the illness.
They may have failed to provide you with adequate safety equipment, failed to maintain asbestos and other harmful materials in the correct manner or may simply have neglected to provide you with the proper training.
