If you have been the victim of chemical poisoning because of employer negligence you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

With a wide range of chemicals in use across today’s workforce, it perhaps unsurprising that some people can develop health problems because of unsafe exposure.

Symptoms of harmful exposure to chemicals may include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Wheezing
  • Coughing
  • Sickness
  • Faintness or dizziness

In severe cases chemical poisoning can also cause neurological damage, harm to the central nervous system, occupational Asthma or Asbestosis or Dermatitis.

Our experienced Occupational Disease team has successfully secured compensation for a number of clients who have suffered through exposure to chemicals at work. Typical cases include:

  • Compensation for employees exposed to harmful chemicals at work
  • Compensation claims for employees who were not issued the necessary protective clothing or equipment
  • Compensation claims for employees who were not provided with proper training on handling dangerous chemicals
  • Compensation for victims exposed to dangerous industrial waste not disposed of correctly (whether employees or not)

Where appropriate we also act on behalf of relatives and dependants of people who have died as a result of workplace diseases such as exposure to chemical poisoning.

With strict time limits imposed on recovering occupational disease compensation it’s important to act soon.
