Are you aware that an accident lawyer in Eden could also deal with your claim for industrial disease? Many people are aware that claims can be made for personal injuries that happen in accidents that were caused by someone else – and that these accidents might occur anywhere, including at work.
About industrial diseases
These are injuries that are a bit different from the usual things that you might suffer at work, such as slips and falls, or cuts and fractures from heavy machinery. An industrial disease is something that is caused by someone’s working conditions, either because there has been exposure to dangerous substances, or because working practices have been unsafe.
Since it’s not possible to determine the onset of such illnesses, the usual three-year deadline from the date of injury to make a claim through an accident lawyer in Eden does not apply. But you should still call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible if you have an industrial disease and you want to make a claim – after all, why wait any longer than necessary to get your payout?
An accident lawyer in Eden will make sure you receive the compensation you are entitled to if you have been the victim of an industrial accident or have been left suffering from an illness related to an industrial disease.
Asbestos is a well-known cause of industrial disease
Most people today know that asbestos is a highly dangerous substance, but for many years, it was used as a fire resistant and an insulator. Many people who worked with asbestos had high levels of exposure to it for several years, even decades, and later found that they suffered diseases such as pleural thickening, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is a cancer that is caused by asbestos, and people suffering from it have been found to have worked in industries such as:
- Boiler-making, where asbestos was used to insulate boilers
- Plumbing, which involved working with pipes lagged with asbestos and cutting through walls insulated with asbestos
- Construction, because asbestos had a wide variety of applications in building work
- The motor trade, where mechanics would come into contact with asbestos because of its presence in brake pads
