Respiratory and Lung Disease Claims

Our industrial disease solicitors are among the most experienced, specialist industrial disease lawyers in the UK. Over decades, we have pursed key test cases and have successfully secured damages for thousands of trade union members who developed a respiratory or lung disease as a result of their workplace conditions.

The symptoms of industrial respiratory diseases, such as persistent coughs, fever and breathing difficulties, can take years to develop. Although many are treatable, some respiratory diseases are fatal.

If you have been diagnosed with a respiratory disease caused by exposure to a harmful substance such as dust, silica, asbestos or fumes, contact your union legal service for advice on making a claim for compensation.

We’ve represented trade union members who have developed conditions including occupational asthma, lung cancer, silicosis and asbestos-related diseases to secure maximum compensation.

We use our unrivalled experience to establish whether you have a claim for compensation and can put you in touch with experts and support groups that can try to help you manage and come to terms with your condition.

“The support I received from Thompsons Solicitors and the dedication with which they pursued my employer for compensation was great.” David, trade union member
