    Expert help with work-related illness claims


    When you have suffered illness as a result of your job, the last thing you need is any more stress. You might want to make a personal injury claim for compensation, but you’re not sure how to go about it or how to get the advice you need. You might not even be sure if your injury or illness is classed as work related or if you’re eligible to make a claim at all. That’s why you need the services of a specialist personal injury solicitor. Accident Advice Helpline has over 16 years’ experience handling work-related illness claims, so you can trust us for expert advice on your claim, whatever type of illness you are suffering from.

    How complicated are work-related illness claims?

    Work-related illness claims don’t have to be complicated. If you have suffered from back pain, occupational asthma or work-related hearing loss due to your work, we will need to prove that your job directly caused your illness (or made an existing condition significantly worse). Provided that we can do this and that your employer accepts liability for the claim, most claims are usually able to be settled without the need to go to court. It’s only if things get more complicated that you may need to go to court, and you will be supported by our team of expert lawyers and advisors at all times. There is a three-year time limit in place to claim compensation if you have a work-related illness, so the sooner you can get in touch with us, the better.

    Will you lose your job?

    There’s no need to worry about losing your job. Whether you have made a claim for back pain, occupational dermatitis or even stress, there are laws in place to protect you and your employer can’t discriminate against you or fire you for making a personal injury claim. They won’t even have to pay the settlement out of their own pocket if your claim is successful. By law, all employers in the UK must have liability insurance in place, which will pay out in the event of a successful claim.

    So you really have nothing to lose by getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to make a personal injury claim. We provide a 100% no-win, no-fee* service, so there are no upfront legal fees to worry about, and it’s free to call our helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or call us on 0333 500 0993 from your mobile).
