When can you make a claim for an asthma injury?

Asthma is not always inherent from birth thus there are a number of causes of this respiratory condition. Genetics, air pollution or even hay fever are all common triggers although asthma itself can be described as one of those industrial disease accidents whereby compensation may be sought. If you think that you have developed asthma as a result of poor working conditions such as over-exposure to dust, vapour or other toxic fumes then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. The only proof that needs to be upheld therefore is that you have contracted this disease from your working environment and that your employer did not provide adequate protective apparel for you to us.

What is asthma?

Asthma is a respiratory condition that causes difficulty when breathing. It is a common complaint with over five million sufferers currently within the UK alone. Often it requires medical attention for life although in the majority of cases it can be managed through the use of quick-relief inhalers. Common symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness
  • Coughing or wheezing
  • Asthma attacks

How Much Compensation Is Possible?

The amount of compensation relative to a work-related illness is dependent on a number of factors such as the severity of your asthma, the support and the costs related to your rehabilitation. There is no specific sum that can be expected although it would be advisable to seek legal advice from a personal injury specialist since they will have dealt with similar cases and therefore have sound knowledge of these types of claims. Other considerations which will be taken into account for your compensation are your current and future loss of earnings, medical and other expenses as well as the costs owed to your own pain and suffering endured from the accident.

How can I make a claim?

Primarily you should consult a personal injury specialist solicitor who will have dealt with similar cases in the past. All personal injury type cases are founded on their own facts but claims which are more than similar are likely to welcome the same level of compensation therefore having an experienced solicitor on your side would be beneficial. Attempting to raise a claim yourself is not impossible but you could overlook simple factors which could then affect your overall claim for compensation. As such, here at Scot Accident Claims, we boast a strong personal injury personnel thus can help advise you best as to your potential compensation outcome.
