When we say accident in work claim, we are not just referring to one off accidents, such as a fall. We are also referring to the accidents that take place and progress over time causing injuries and physical damage over a number of years. For example white finger vibration, repetitive strain injury and industrial deafness. These are all physical damages and injuries which are not caused by one single incident or day at work, but progress and develop over time.
Are you suffering from an industrial disease?
If you’re suffering from an industrial disease you have three years from your diagnosis to make a compensation claim.
These are long term injuries which have occurred due to negligence e.g. not providing protective equipment or clothing, or not providing ear plugs in noisy working environments. Or perhaps lack of training, failing to give employees the correct health and safety training which will educate them on how to avoid repetitive strain injury.
