    Claiming compensation for industrial illness

    Is your work making you ill?

    Regardless of what type of job you do, you should be able to feel safe when you’re at work. Even if your job is inherently dangerous, you should feel confident that your employer has provided you with the relevant safety equipment so that you aren’t at risk of becoming unwell or being injured.

    However, sometimes things do go wrong and there is a chance that you could be hurt at work or that your work could cause you to become unwell. In these situations, you may need to consider claiming compensation for industrial illness.

    What medical treatment have you received?

    If you’re experiencing an industrial illness, it’s absolutely essential that you receive the correct medical treatment. Some work-related illnesses can be life-threatening so it’s important to see a doctor or medical professional as soon as possible.

    They will be able to organise the appropriate treatment and provide information regarding the nature of your illness and the possible outcomes. For example, once your industrial illness is treated, you may be able to return to your job role when the workplace has been made safe.

    However, if your illness is going to have long-term complications, you may need to look for other work or give up working altogether. Clearly, a change in your work will have an impact on your finances so it may be important for you to take legal action.

    Claiming compensation for industrial illness

    Although getting medical help is essential for your health, it’s also a vital part of making a successful personal injury claim. In fact, you won’t be able to take legal action if you haven’t received treatment for your illness or injury.

    Similarly, you’ll also need to show that you weren’t responsible for becoming ill. If you’re claiming compensation for industrial illness, you will need to prove that your employer is liable. If you’re concerned about accessing the relevant evidence to support your claim, we can help.
