Claiming if you have had an accident at work can be a stressful process. Obviously people have reservations about bringing a claim against their employer. This should not be the case, as every employer is aware that they have a duty of care to provide you with a safe working environment. And as a result, your employer should have insurance in place, which means it will be the insurer paying your compensation and not the employer. If you think you have contracted an industrial disease because of conditions you have worked in, call us on 0333 443 2466 as you may be entitled to compensation.
Working in a factory or with heavy machinery can cause long lasting serious medical conditions. These serious conditions often fall under the term industrial disease. According to research conducted by the HSE, there are around 2 million people in the UK who are suffering with an illness which was either caused by, or made worse by, their working environment.
Employers have a duty of care to provide you with a safe working environment. If you believe you are now suffering with an industrial disease because of the actions, or inaction, of your current or previous employer, then call us on 0333 443 2466 and one of our advisers will be waiting to discuss your case.
You are eligible to make a claim relating to industrial disease if accident or exposure took place in the last three years. Alternatively, can claim if you became aware of your illness within the last three years. Called the date of knowledge, this is usually when your illness was diagnosed.
You can even make a claim if the company you work for is no longer trading. Companies are required to ensure against injury as per The Employers’ Liability Act 1969, and the Employers’ Liability Tracing Office carries records of the insurance companies used by employers. If you need to make a claim against a now closed company, your solicitor will try to track the insurance company liable for the compensation through this route.
Conditions which fall under the term industrial disease include:
The list above does not cover every industrial disease. If you feel you have an illness which has been caused by, or has worsened because of your working environment, call one of our expert claims advisers on 0333 443 246 to start your claim.
