Have you or someone you love developed an illness or disease because you were exposed to something harmful at work? If you have, and if the exposure or harmful working conditions were caused, at least in part, by the negligence, recklessness or unreasonable conduct of another person, then you could be entitled to compensation.
You may also help to prevent the same thing from happening to someone else.
Making an industrial disease claim in Scotland
It can seem daunting to make a claim for compensation from your employer? But your employer has a legal obligation and duty of care to keep you safe at work and to provide a safe working environment, so if you are suffering from an industrial disease or condition that was caused or aggravated by your work, then it is your right to seek justice.
