If you live in Bethnal Green and are looking in your phone book for an accident solicitor in Bethnal Green or searching online for an “accident solicitor in Bethnal Green” perhaps you have just been diagnosed with a work-related illness. If you have been diagnosed with an occupational illness within the last three years, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim.
There are very strict guidelines laid down for employers to follow, which are supervised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). There are many kinds of occupational illnesses and most are preventable. However if you worked with asbestos before it was understood how dangerous this material can be, you could still be able to file a claim as long as you were first diagnosed with a cancer or other illness associated with working with asbestos within the last three years.
Sometimes such illnesses occur only after years, and even though you no longer work with the material, you could have first contracted your illness years ago, although it is only now that you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related cancer.
Family members of a person who worked with asbestos are also at risk of contracting an asbestos related disease, because they could have come into contact with asbestos dust or scraps of asbestos on the clothes of the person who was working with it. It is only since the 1990s that the dangers of asbestos became known.
There are many forms of illness that may be asbestos related, and if you have been diagnosed with one of these, then you should contact an accident solicitor in Bethnal Green or elsewhere who has experience of dealing with asbestos related claims. Although pleural plaques are no longer liable for compensation after a House of Lord’s decision, you should still contact an accident solicitor in Bethnal Green or another elsewhere who has the experience of dealing with asbestos-related compensation claims.
