At Accident Advice Helpline, we specialise in industrial illnesses in Kirkcaldy and Dysart. For the past 15 years, we have been helping people to file claims against their employers after developing illnesses and diseases at work. If you’ve come into contact with a harmful substance in your workplace, and you’ve become ill as a result, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation. We can ensure that you win every single penny of the money owed to you.
Types of industrial illness
There are many different types of industrial diseases you can develop after being exposed to hazardous substances at work. These include Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome, Mercury Poisoning, Benzene Poisoning, Farmers’ Lung and Occupational Asthma. There are many others too. If you’re not sure whether or not you qualify to file a claim, simply get in touch. We have a huge amount of expertise at hand and let you know if you’re eligible.
We can also tell you how much compensation you could receive, should your claim be successful. When you choose Accident Advice Helpline to help you file a claim against your past and current employer, we’ll do our best to make the whole process as straightforward and stress-free as possible. You may not even need to attend court, as we’re able to process most claims over the phone.
Claiming against your employer? Don’t worry
Whilst it’s only natural to feel nervous about claiming against the company you work for, you don’t need to worry too much. The company will have insurance in place (or at least they should have), and so any money paid out to you as compensation will come from their insurer, rather than their own bank account. What’s more, your employer can’t fire you just because you have filed a personal injury claim against them. If they were to go down this route, you may then be able to file a second claim for unfair dismissal, which your employer certainly won’t want.
