There are many different types of accidents at work and work-related illnesses. What kind of work claims can be made essentially depends on the type of work injury or the occupational illness you suffered or are suffering with and what caused your injury at work or work-induced illness.
What kind of work claims are there?
Basically, work claims may consist of claims for:
- Slips, trips and falls or other accident resulting in fractured or broken bones
- Asbestos-related illnesses
- Construction accident
- Illness caused by prolonged exposure to harmful substances
- Illness caused by work accidents causing massive exposure to harmful substances
- Industrial deafness
- Injuries by electrocution, fire or explosions
- Product liability
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Vibration white finger
- Work-induced stress, anxiety and/or depression
What kind of work claims are successful?
In essence, any work injury compensation claim has a good chance of being successful as long as:
- The claim has been initiated within three years of the date the workplace accident occurred or, in case of industrial illnesses, within three years of the date the occupational disease was diagnosed
- Someone else was responsible for your work-related accident or condition
Evidence to prove that your accident at work or work-related ill-health was caused by someone else’s mistake or negligence has to be provided.
