Pneumoconiosis Claims

Pneumoconiosis is a relatively common industrial disease which is caused by the inhalation of hazardous dust. Most sufferers fall ill after working in the mining industry and inhaling dust from coal but pneumoconiosis can also develop following the inhalation of asbestos, silica, carbon and by products of the cotton and iron industries.

Our extensive experience in making industrial disease claims for pneumoconiosis means we understand the true extent of these types of lung conditions. People can be left in pain, with difficult breathing and lessened ability to carry out even the simplest day to day tasks.

Pneumoconiosis symptoms

The main symptom of pneumoconiosis is shortness of breath. The severity of this will depend on an individual and could range from shortness of breath when taking part in activity or a general feeling that it is more difficult to breathe.

As with many industrial lung conditions the symptoms of pneumoconiosis can take years to develop and include:

  • Tight feeling in the chest
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Chronic pneumoconiosis can contribute to the development of other conditions including:

  • Cyanosis
  • Emphysema
  • Bronchitis
