What is Silicosis?

Silicosis is a lung disease which is caused by inhaling dust which contains crystalline silica. The particles of dust can cause damage to the lungs which results in symptoms such as coughing, weakness, tight chest and breathlessness. A silica dust is found in many substances such as coal, slate and sandstone and workers within the construction, mining and related industries are more at risk of developing silicosis.

It can take 20 years for symptoms of silicosis to appear, but regardless of whether you have changed employers or even retired, if you’ve developed silicosis as a result of your employer’s negligence, we can help you claim compensation. Russell Worth solicitors will:
