Slater and Gordon Lawyers can provide immediate legal representation and sympathetic support for people exposed to different kinds of dust in the UK leading to Pneumoconiosis, also known as miner’s lung and black lung.
Call freephone 0808 175 8000 for a No Obligation, Free Consultation if you or a family member has suffered from an Pneumoconiosis related disease.
You can claim compensation for an Pneumoconiosis related disease such as Asbestosis, Byssinosis, Silicosis, Siderosis, Kaolin Pneumoconiosis or Coal Worker’s Pneumoconiosis if you, or a member of your family, developed the disease as a result of working within a very dusty environment.
You can also claim compensation for a Pneumoconiosis disease if you were exposed to dust while not at work or in a workplace; for example from exposure to dust on the work clothes of a family member.
If the employer has gone out of business or is no longer operating, you can still claim Pneumoconiosis compensation through the insurance company which provided insurance at the time of the exposure to the Pneumoconiosis causing dust. In many Pneumoconiosis compensation cases the former company is restored, and/or compensation is claimed under the Government’s scheme through the Pneumoconiosis (Workman’s Compensation) Act 1979.
You can claim compensation if your Pneumoconiosis related injuries are relatively minor, as it is possible to reserve the opportunity to get more damages if you develop one of the more serious Pneumoconiosis related conditions in later years.
Millions of people have been exposed to Pneumoconiosis causing dust in the construction, mining and shipbuilding industries. Many employers knew about the dangers of these dusty environments, but did not adequately protect their employees, employees’ families or local residents from being exposed to Pneumoconiosis dust.
