How much compensation for industrial disease

Have you been diagnosed with Emphysema? Have you:

  • Been exposed to industrial dust at work
  • Been exposed to dangerous coal dust
  • Suffered after poor health & safety precautions
  • Been diagnosed with emphysema
  • Been suffering from bad health

Emphysema is a serious condition which affects the lungs. It cannot be cured and is often fatal. It can be caused by smoking but one of the most common causes of emphysema is exposure to industrial dust at work.

Emphysema causes the air sacs in the lungs to react to dust and enlarge which causes the walls of the air sacs to be damaged. Once the walls are damaged, they are less efficient and breathing can be difficult. The symptoms of emphysema are difficulty breathing and a persistent long term cough, which gets progressively worse. Emphysema is a debilitating disease which makes it difficult to take on oxygen or to breathe normally. It often leaves sufferers housebound, with a poor quality of life. Causes of Industrial Emphysema include:

  • Working in coal mines
  • Exposure to coal dust
  • Working in industrial factories
  • Exposure to hazardous industrial dusts
  • Inhaling hazardous dusts over a long period of time
  • Insufficient protective equipment
