Industrial disease claims in Kireland

Industrial disease is a medical condition contracted as a result of an unsatisfactory working environment. The term is used for a wide range of medical conditions including injuries to the skin, respiratory system and muscles, nerves and tendons. These injuries can be caused as a result of an employer’s failure to comply with health and safety regulations, failure to provide employees with a safe system of work and a safe place of work as is required under the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act 2005.

Compensation claims involving industrial diseases are often a lot more difficult to pursue than other types of personal injury claims. The exposure which caused the illness could have occurred a long time ago and expert evidence to prove a link between the illness and working conditions may be required.

If your employer has failed to provide you with a safe place of work or safe system of work and you have contracted an industrial disease you may have grounds for a compensation claim.
