Construction site illnesses can cause more than just pain and distress. You may be unable to work if your illness becomes severe and if you feel you have to work through the illness because you are self employed, this can lead to further problems.

Causes of construction site illnesses

  • Exposure to asbestos
  • Exposure to chemicals (see also our information on respiratory disease lawyers and skin condition lawyers) not just irritant and may want to refer to asthma and dermatitis
  • Exposure to dust which can lead to respiratory illness
  • Use of vibrating tools and machinery leading to Vibration White Finger and other related conditions
  • Exposure to noise leading to deafness, hearing impairment or tinnitus.
  • Exposure to laboratory animals
  • Exposure to resins and glues

Claiming compensation following a construction site injury

If you have suffered an injury or illness which you believe to have been caused whilst working on a construction site you may be entitled to compensation from your employer or another contractor to help pay for medical treatment and ease the financial pressures from being unable to work.

Only accredited lawyers specialising in construction site illnesses 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.
