Even in the 21st century, there are still workers who become exposed to harmful substances on a daily basis. This can lead to various industrial diseases with wide ranging health implications. We are specialists in industrial disease claims, and have some of the best industrial disease solicitors in the UK working for us. Read on to find out more on how to claim for compensation.
Industrial Disease Compensation
It’s a sad fact of working in industry that workers can be exposed to harmful substances and as a result contract a disease or become ill. If it’s possible to prove that your employer was responsible for your illness due to exposing you to substances, then there’s every possibility that we can represent with your industrial disease compensation claims.
Industrial Disease Claims – The Responsibility
At the core of any industrial disease claim is the act of apportioning responsibility and blame. All employers in the UK are legally required to protect their workers against the risk of industrial disease and illness with preventative and protective measures.
If we find that your employer has failed in their responsibilities and are to blame for your illness then we can proceed with making industrial disease claims on your behalf, and that of your co-workers.
So as an example, if you have been paid to work in conditions where your health was at risk then we will be able to take action against them. Often we find that employers have failed to adhere to UK legislation on health and safety, which in turn has led to their staff becoming ill. This is where the bulk of our industrial disease claims for compensation arise.
Our industrial disease lawyers and solicitors will assess your case and look at all of the evidence and then proceed to get industrial disease compensation awarded that will cover off all damages incurred – both mental and physical. This will include aspects such as medical costs, travel costs, expenses incurred, and other monies that could be owed. The industrial disease claims process is designed to ensure that your life is as close to what it was before your illness as possible.
