Industrial injuries disablement benefit
Did you know that in order for a disease to be attributed to an Industrial injury the Secretary of State for Department for Work and Pensions needs to agree that there is evidence that the injury or disease is a risk of a specific occupation and that the related risk can be confirmed with a sufficient level of certainty? This means that the disease or injury can only be attributed to the workers in an occupation if the risk of getting the disease is higher than usual for the general public. Examples of such industrial injuries include the development of cataracts in the eyes due to radiation exposure, or osteoarthritis in the knees of coalminers.
There is a governmental benefit called Industrial injuries disablement benefit for people who are disabled due to an accident at work, or because of a medical condition that has been caused by the work environment. The Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit Scheme has listed around 70 different diseases that are recognised to be caused by industrial working conditions.
The Industrial injuries disablement benefit scheme does not cover all people who have been harmed. For example, the self-employed are not eligible to claim for Industrial injuries disablement benefit.
All is not lost. If you have suffered an industrial injury or disease you may be entitled to compensation. The reason is by law, employers must ensure that their workers are safe in their place of work. This means that if you suffer an injury or disease related to your work, you may be entitled to compensation. To find out if you can claim, contact Accident Advice Helpline today.
