Our team has helped hundreds of individuals across the North West to claim compensation following an injury and we are dedicated to making things easier for you and your family at this difficult time. 

Occupational Asthma Claims

Occupational asthma is an industrial disease caused by exposure to certain dusts, gases, fumes and vapours. If employers do not take the proper precautions, employees in a range of industries, from commercial bakers to solderers, are at risk of developing occupational asthma.

We cover a range of cases across the North West, including our base in Birkenhead, and across the Wirral, Liverpool, Merseyside & Cheshire.

If you have an enquiry about a potential occupational asthma claim call PHR Solicitors’ specialist industrial disease department free on 0800 781 3894 or complete an enquiry form.

What are the Symptoms?

The symptoms of occupational asthma can be debilitating. Wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath can make it difficult to complete even the simplest tasks around the house, not to mention playing with the kids or doing the weekly shop.

Such symptoms can also have an impact on your effectiveness at work and, in some cases, might mean you have to give up your job.

If you are exposed to harmful dust or gases whilst at work, think carefully about the safety measures you and your employer take. Are you provided with the proper safety gear? Have you been made aware of the risks?

Making a Compensation Claim

Our experienced industrial disease solicitors will be happy to discuss the details of your claim during a free initial consultation. If you decide to proceed, we will take your claim on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, meaning you will receive all the compensation awarded by the court.

We will keep you up to date on the progress of your claim and will negotiate a settlement on your behalf that is not only designed to help you pay for medical fees, but will also compensate you for a reduction in your quality of life.
