Entitled to claim compensation for industrial illnesses in Maidstone ?
There are lots of different diseases that you could suffer from being at work, not just the ones associated with asbestos. Some of the ones that occur are:
- Malignant mesothelioma
- Asbestos related lung cancer
- Industrial Deafness

Accident claims for industrial illnesses in Maidstone
Because of the length of time before these conditions manifest themselves, you have three years from the date of diagnosis to make your claim. Often at this point victims are really poorly and too unwell to deal with the claim themselves. The is not a problem, at Accident Advice Helpline we will deal with family members, because we do not believe the victim should lose the compensation they are entitled to.
Even the fact they might not have worked for the employer for some years is not a problem, it does not absolve them of their liability. The compensation would be paid by the provider of their employers liability insurance, and if the company that employed the victim has ceased trading, the insurance company will still pay the claim.
