Industrial Disease

What Is An Industrial Disease?

“Industrial Disease” is a term used when describing a condition/illness which has developed due to being exposed to a dangerous substance or unsafe working conditions in the workplace.

After you have been exposed to the dangerous substance or unsafe working conditions, you may develop a variety of illnesses.

If you have suffered from an industrial disease, and think you may have a potential claim, the first step is to tell us about it. We can offer you an initial free consultation to inform you whether you have a case.

The process of your claim

Firstly, contact Gray Magee Solicitors,  we will take your full details of your case.  Secondly, we will send a claim letter to the person/organisation you are claiming against. We inform them about your  industrial disease and why you hold them at fault.  Usually after that there is a process of negotiation to see if it is possible to agree to settle your case without Court proceedings.  However, if no agreement can be reached,  proceedings can be issued to take your case to Court.  If the matter is not settled then it will be taken in front of a judge. The judge will make a decision as to whether or not you are entitled to compensation for your industrial disease claim. The judge will also decide how much that compensation is to be.  We always try to claim the maximum amount of compensation for you, that you can successfully recover in each case.
