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.
When asbestos is disturbed, tiny fibres are released into the air. Anyone in the vicinity risks breathing in these harmful particles which can lodge themselves in the lungs. There are a number of asbestos related lung diseases, but mesothelioma is by far the most deadly.

Occupational respiratory disease claims thousands of lives each year in the UK. If workers are exposed to harmful gases, fumes and dusts, they breathe these substances in and their health can be affected. Often, the damage will only become apparent much later in life and this means it may be difficult to trace former employers. But Thompsons has a specialist team who are experts in tracing business even if they are no longer trading.
