Emphysema - Professions at Risk
Emphysema is an irreversible long-term lung disease which causes widespread destruction of lung tissue. One of the main causes of emphysema is working in an environment where hazardous substances and materials are present and here at JMW Solicitors we have an expert team who have claimed millions in payouts for those affected by emphysema due to their profession.
Signs and symptoms of emphysema include shortness of breath and an expanded chest, and sufferers may find they need to breathe with their arms extended in order to catch their breath.
If you’ve developed emphysema we can make a claim on your behalf – to talk to us in more detail call our experts today on 0345 872 6666. We’ll give you an honest appraisal of your situation and chances of securing a payout.
