Work-related illness case studies

Work-related illness is a wide category of illnesses and health conditions caused by working conditions.

If your illness was caused by negligence on the part of your employer, either through an act or omission, you will have grounds to make a claim for compensation.

Some workplace illnesses that are closely associated with mining, factory work and other heavy industry, such as mesothelioma and noise-induced hearing loss, are also referred to as industrial disease.

Work-related illness can result from a wide range of issues, from defective or inadequate PPE to over-work and poor Health and Safety practices.

Examples of work-related illness include:

  • Dermatitis
  • Workplace stress and depression
  • Lung disease
  • Asbestos-related disease
  • Repetitive strain injuries (RSI)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS)

With Quittance Legal Services, your work-related illness claim will be handled by a highly-experienced solicitor with an excellent track record of winning compensation for claimants who have been harmed as the result of their employer's negligence.
