COPD compensation claims.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an occupational illness caused by exposure to harmful substances in the working environment. It is a serious condition which gets worse over time.

The types of industry most affected include coal mining, the cotton textile industry and the chemical industry. Fumes from welding and metal burning are also known to cause COPD, and workers involved in brick making, construction and the flour & grain industry are also at risk.

It is your employers responsibility to provide you with suitable protective equipment. If your employer has failed to do so, and you have developed Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease as a result, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Making a COPD claim.

There is a time limit to making a claim. COPD compensation claims must begin within 3 years from the date of diagnosis.

If you believe you have developed COPD because of your job, you should seek legal advice to see what action you are entitled to take against your employer.

Our solicitors will fight on your behalf to ensure you receive the best settlement possible.
