Silicosis Compensation Claims

Silicosis is a type of lung condition which is caused by exposure to silica dust. In most cases, this condition is linked to those occupations and professions where workers come into contact with silica dust on a regular basis. Occupations where workers are at a risk of developing silicosis include pottery and mining.

If you have developed silicosis after being exposed to silica dust at work, you may be eligible to make silicosis compensation claims.

Silicosis is a progressive disease and it takes a long time to develop. Signs and symptoms of this disease may appear after many years of being exposed to silica. Some of the common symptoms of silicosis include:

  • shortness of breath
  • loss of appetite
  • tiredness and fatigue
  • chest pain
  • weight loss
  • severe and dry cough
  • fever
  • changes in breathing pattern
  • chronic cough

In the UK, the Health & Safety Act states that it is important for the employers to provide adequate personal protective equipment to those workers who come into contact with hazardous substances. Additionally, it is the duty of the employer to carry out risk assessments and adopt safety measures to minimise potential risks of injuries and illnesses.

If an employer fails to abide by these laws, he will be held accountable for any injuries or accidents caused at the workplace.
