Have you recently been diagnosed with some form of industrial disease or injury? Occupational health hazards are commonplace within the industrial and construction industries, as workers are inclined to be exposed to any number of chemicals and machinery. In certain cases, prolonged exposure can begin to have dire repercussions for the respiratory and nervous system, without the worker ever realising anything is amiss. Similarly, strain injuries of the back, shoulders and neck caused by heavy lifting, repetitive movement and overexertion may not present problems until later in life, amplified by the conditional effects of aging.
If you have contracted an industrial disease because of your job, you may be entitled to compensation.
Backed by years of experience in industrial claims, our no win no fee solicitors provide immediate support for anyone recently diagnosed with an industrial disease. Our costs are carried by the employer’s insurance company, meaning there are no reductions to your compensation at any stage of representation. This means we can confidently offer 100% compensation for your suffering, in addition to any losses or medical costs that may be pursued.
The Evolution of Industrial Disease
It is only within the past two decades that the true effects of exposure and repetitive strain injury have been brought to light. Conditions such as asbestosis and chronic asthma are now known to be caused by exposure to certain substances, leading to revised safety regulations for working environments and practices. Whilst the likelihood of contracting an industrial disease has been slightly reduced, it is still an occupational likelihood for many working in industrial trades. Defective equipment, machinery and negligence are primary contributors to industrial disease, which in many cases can be prevented with better education, training and safety review.
