Personal injury doesn’t just cover broken bones from slips, trips and falls, or whiplash sustained in car accidents. These are common, of course, but there is another kind of personal injury that affects many people: industrial disease.
What is an industrial disease?
Industrial disease is the term given to conditions and illnesses that occur as a result of exposure to dangerous substances or unsafe conditions in your workplace. An industrial disease may occur, for example, after repeated use of machinery without proper safety measures being in place.
Other industrial diseases may take the form of cancer. Lung and bladder cancers, for example, may be caused by diesel fumes. It is now known that diesel fumes are carcinogenic, which means that if you have worked on the railways or in construction and you have lung cancer, it could be as a result of your occupation.
I do have an industrial disease – but why do I need a personal injury lawyer in Rowde?
Industrial diseases stop you from working. This may be for a long time; it could even be permanent. Whatever your situation is, you will have experienced a lot of stress and worry, not just from the medical treatment you have had, but also from the loss of income.
Claiming compensation could ensure you recoup your losses.
