Industrial disease is a technical term for any condition or affliction that occurs as a result of exposure to a hazardous or toxic substance in the workplace. There are many forms of industrial disease, but the most common claims in Ontario are:
Pleural plaques or thickening
If you’ve been the victim of industrial disease, or are conducting research on behalf of a loved one who has, you will have many questions. Given the variable nature of industrial disease, each individual will have distinct concerns about their physical recovery, as well as their ability to manage everyday obligations they took on prior to their affliction.
Paying bills, providing for loved ones, and maintaining a home can be incredibly challenging when physical and financial stresses continue to mount: this is where the Oatley Vigmond Team can help.

Putting People First – Comprehensive Care from our Personal Injury Team
Industrial disease can have a dramatic effect on the life of the affected individual. In many cases, conditions will require ongoing care and disability.
