Pneumoconiosis Claims

Pneumoconiosis is the name given to the group of lung diseases that are all caused by prolonged exposure to dusty environments, usually in the workplace.

Kaolin, Coal Worker’s pneumoconiosis and Welders’ Lung are some of the common lung diseases and cancers that are usually sustained from the mining, construction and shipbuilding industries.

What is Pneumoconiosis?

Pneumoconiosis is the general term used to describe lung diseases and cancers that are caused by environments where large volumes of dust and dangerous chemicals are present.

Suffering from any lung disease is life changing, however the pneumoconiosis group are largely incurable, which makes them even more devastating for the victims and their families.

Coal Worker’s Pneumoconiosis

There are two types of coal worker’s pneumoconiosis – there is a simple form of the condition where largely no symptoms are present however there is a significant amount of dust settling into the lungs. If the dust exposure is continued it can lead to progressive massive fibrosis, a more severe version of the condition.

Welders’ Lung

Welders’ lung affects those working within the metalworking industry and is caused by the inhalation of iron particles,these stay within the lungs and cause severe breathing problems for those affected.

Kaolin Pneumoconiosis

In comparison to the other lung diseases under the pneumoconiosis umbrella, kaolin is a mild disorder. The symptoms of Kaolin Pneumoconiosis include a cough, shortness of breath and wheezing. Kaolin is caused by the inhalation of dust particles.

If you are suffering from any pneumoconiosis lung disease as a result negligence by your employer you will be eligible to make a compensation claim.
