You may want to use the services of Accident Advice Helpline to make a Bangor accident at work claim, if you have become injured in an accident at work that was not your own fault.
All employers are supposed to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work, and this does not just apply to one of accidents, but conditions that can develop over time as well.
These are known as industrial illnesses, and just like with all illnesses and injuries, the severity of them can vary greatly.
Making a Bangor accident at work claim for an industrial illness
There are many industrial illnesses you can get while you are at work, if your employer does not have the correct precautions in place. The main difference between making a claim for one of them is that you have three years from the date of diagnosis to make your claim, rather than three years from the date of a specific incident.
As some conditions can take many years to show themselves, this could mean that it is over 30 later before you make your Bangor accident at work claim. In fact, it is a legal requirement that employers keep proof of their liability insurance for 40 years, as it is this insurance that would settle any compensation claims for industrial illness.
Accident Advice Helpline know how to deal with a Bangor accident at work claim
Since the year 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has helped many sufferers of industrial illness get the compensation they were entitled to. Some types of illness have occurred more frequently than others, and they have included:
- Asbestos related diseases, which are still coming to light even though asbestos was banned in the UK at the end of the last century.
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Vibration White Finger, Dead Finger and Hand-arm syndrome. These are all injuries caused by using vibrating tools or equipment, or constantly using a keyboard. There are rules and regulations to prevent these conditions, some of which are curable and some which are not.
- Repetitive Strain Injury, which is caused when the same muscles are used repeatedly for actions they do not normally make.
- Back and spinal injuries can be caused by regular heavy lifting, particularly if the employee has not had the proper training in lifting heavy objects. Falls from height can also be the reason for these types of injuries.
- Industrial deafness, which is caused through being around constant loud noise. Employers should do their best to reduce noise levels, but if they cannot do this, they should provide you with ear protectors.
