Claims for occupational illnesses and diseases acquired through exposure to substances, forces or environmental factors in the workplace share common problems, such as establishing causation or foreseeability, identifying when limitation periods begin and end, as well as having to deal with complicated medical or expert evidence on which the case may succeed or fail.

This new guide provides a convenient one-stop source of reference for occupational illness claims. It outlines the vast array of statutory provisions which regulate this area of law, helping you identify which laws were in force at the time of the exposure. It explains the nature of the common occupational illnesses and the problems associated with complicated expert evidence required to establish liability. Advice on valuing the claim and practical matters about pursuing the claim are also included.
