Longer term effects of an employment and making accident claims in Pontypridd
You could have something worse than a normal injury; you could get an industrial illness, which may not manifest itself for up to 40 years’ later. If you can prove that you got this illness from a previous employer, then you can still make an injury claim for compensation against that boss.
Your employer should have measures in place to stop industrial conditions, and should not let employees:
- Constantly twist their wrist as that might cause repetitive strain injury, or carpal tunnel syndrome
- Work at a workstation that is too small for the work they have to do, meaning they are not able to sit properly, which might cause back damage
- Have the constant vibration of a piece of machinery, which may cause vibration white finger (where vibration is concerned the employer should carry out a risk assessment, and adjust the amount of time spent on machinery if the assessment says it is necessary)
- Be constantly exposed to certain dusts or chemicals that in small amounts will not affect them, but long term can cause unrepairable damage to their health.
If you already have an illness and it is made worse by your employment, then you could still make a personal injury claim, it does not have to be a new illness or injury.
