If you have a lung disease or respiratory condition that was caused or made worse by your work, Thompsons Solicitors in Scotland can help you make a claim for compensation.
In some cases, the exposure to harmful substances and work conditions may have taken place many years ago, but if you have recently received a lung disease diagnosis or your symptoms have worsened, it might be time to talk to Thompsons about seeking justice.
There are a number of lung disease risks in the work place – asbestos, dusts, gases, fumes and vapours – which are noxious and may cause serious, often incurable, diseases and conditions.
These can severely affect your quality of life and, tragically, some lung diseases are fatal.
Broadly, work-related lung disease falls into two categories: Asbestos related and non-asbestos related.
