It is difficult to say how many cases of occupational asthma occur each year – the Health and Safety Executive thinks that its data sources substantially underestimate the number of people who are suffering from the condition, and the number of people who begin to suffer from it each year.
Even so, the latest estimates suggest that there were anything between 8,600 and 13,000 people suffering from occupational asthma over the last three years.
If you have developed asthma and this has been caused or exacerbated by your work then you may be able to recover compensation as a result.
You might also help to prevent someone else from developing the condition.
