If you have suffered from a work related illness, our lawyers could help you claim industrial disease compensation.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, your employer has a duty of care to you as an employee, and must protect you from any health risks in the workplace. This can be done through providing training on risks, ensuring you have enough breaks to avoid working in the same environment or on the same task for too long, or providing personal protective equipment (PPE).
Unfortunately, failure to follow best practice is common, and workers are put at risk of a number of conditions due to employer negligence. Our solicitors can help you make industrial disease claims following a range of illnesses, including, but not limited to:
- Hearing damage, such as acoustic shock, tinnitus, and noise-induced hearing loss
- Respiratory problems, such as occupational asthma or silicosis
- Repetitive strain injuries, such as bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy and vibration white finger
- Chemical poisoning, which can cause issues such as dermatitis
If you have developed a work related illness, you could be able to claim compensation. Please contact us for further information and advice.
