Are You Entitled to Make as Occupational Asthma Claim?
If you have been diagnosed as having asthma and you believe that it has been caused by poor working conditions that you have been exposed to, then you could be entitled to make an occupational asthma claim.
What Can You Claim For?
When you go to work, you have the right to do so in the safest conditions. Your employer has a duty of care for each of their employees and if they fail to fulfill this and this has led you to contract asthma as a result, then you could be entitled to compensation.
Some of the professions where occupational asthma claims are most commonly made from include:
- Healthcare and dental workers
- Laboratory and animal workers
- Car repairers
- Chemical Processors
However, occupational asthma is by no means limited to the above professions and can occur in any working environment where the victim has been exposed to dust and fumes. Here at Scott Rees and Co, we can help with your occupational asthma claim, regardless of the profession that you may have contracted it from.
