Emphysema Claims

Work-related emphysema tends to be the result of extremely dusty working environments; if you worked in a dusty environment but were not provided with adequate safety gear or the proper training, your employer may have behaved negligently.

If you, a family member or friend, have developed emphysema as a result of the negligence of a current or former employer, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Call 0800 054 6570, or complete the contact form to the right-hand side of the page and we will be in touch shortly.

Occupational Emphysema: The Facts

While the biggest cause of emphysema is smoking, it can also be contracted as a result of long-term exposure to dusty working environments. The workers most at risk of developing emphysema as a result of their working environment, and thus most likely to make emphysema claims, include mill and factory workers, construction workers and anyone else who works in a dusty environment without the necessary protection.

Industrial pollutants like silica dust, welding fumes, textile dust and coal dust are amongst the primary causes of occupational emphysema. Symptoms include:

  • Tightness in the chest

  • Breathlessness

  • Fatigue

  • Persistent cough

If you are worried about the possibility of contracting occupational emphysema, or you think you may already have it already, contact a doctor as soon as possible.
