Silicosis claims advice.

Silicosis is caused by inhaling small particles of silica dust which become embedded in the lungs. This causes a condition known as fibrosis which is a thickening and scarring of the lungs.

Specialist solicitors at Imperium Law can help you claim compensation after exposure to silica at work.

Workers most likely to be affected include:

  • Construction workers involved in sandblasting, rock drilling, masonry work and tunnelling.
  • Miners involved in cutting through sandstone and granite.
  • Glass workers.
  • Stone cutters.
  • Foundry workers.

Workers exposed to silica dust may go on to develop silicosis, which is a preventable but incurable respiratory disease.

Winning your claim.

If inhaling silica dust at work has led you to develop silicosis, you are advised to call a specialist industrial diseases solicitor at Imperium Law to discuss your claim case.

Exposure to high levels of silica can cause symptoms within a year, however it can take years of exposure before symptoms become apparent.

Types of Silicosis:

  1. Chronic Silicosis – this results from long term (up to 20 years) exposure to silica dust, symptoms become apparent slowly.
  2. Accelerated Silicosis – this results from a higher level of exposure to silica dust over a shorter period. Symptoms become apparent after 5 to 15 years of exposure.
  3. Acute Silicosis – this is the rarest form of the disease. Symptoms become apparent after a short period of exposure to high levels of silica dust. Lung damage occurs almost immediately.
