Asthma can be caused by many factors including genetics, lifestyle and working conditions. When a person develops asthma in later life, it is possible that the working environment could have caused the illness. Working conditions can also cause an aggravation of pre-existing conditions of asthma.

Common causes of occupational asthma include

  • Exposure to chemicals
  • Exposure to grain or flour
  • Exposure to spray paint
  • Exposure to wood dust
  • Exposure to latex
  • Exposure to laboratory animals
  • Exposure to resins and glues

Making an asthma compensation claim

Employers are responsible for the wellbeing of their staff at work, so if your symptoms are affecting your daily life, you could claim occupational asthma compensation to ease your financial pressures and compensate for your suffering. Money can also be used to cover the costs of any medical treatment needed.

Only accredited injury lawyers specialising in asthma are listed on this page.

It is strongly recommended that you should consult with two or three accredited injury lawyers before making a decision on who to instruct.
