At Jones Whyte, our highly experienced personal injury claims lawyers have handled many different types of injury claims.

Every individual and every injury claim is different. However, something that seems to be becoming more common is occupational asthma compensation claims.

Occupational asthma is a bit of a catch-all term, used to describe a wide range of breathing problems caused by airborne allergens and irritants in the workplace.

It is imperative that employers reduce the risk of breathing in these particles. If they have failed in that duty, they are open to personal injury claims.

Glasgow-based lawyers for Jones Whyte will handle your claim. While it will start with an initial meeting, this can take place at our offices or through video call. We can handle claims all over Scotland.

Making asthma claims

While every personal injury claim is unique, there are a few steps which are common to all claims, whether this is for asthma or any other condition.

First, a personal injury claim lawyer will take your statement. This will help to establish what and who is responsible.

We will then gather all necessary evidence. This can include:

  • Medical reports.
  • Witness testimony.
  • Expert advice, for example, from industry bodies.

We will then inform the other side of the claim and begin negotiations about appropriate compensation.

The majority of personal injury claims are settled out of court. However, if court action is needed, you will be supported throughout by our personal injury claim lawyers.

Living with asthma

Asthma sufferers can experience a range of issues, including:

  • Wheezing.
  • Tightness in the chest.
  • Coughing.
  • Shortness of breath.

This is common among workers in industries where dust or chemicals are often present. In these cases, employers should have ensured that appropriate PPE was available. The most affected industries include:

  • Construction.
  • Baking.
  • Painting.
  • Metal making.

Making an asthma claim can help you manage your condition, as well as hold negligent employers to account.
