    Industrial disease – injury claim lawyer in Horton-Cum-Studley

    If your occupation has caused you to become ill or injured then you may be able to claim compensation. Your employer has a duty of care to you, to ensure that you are completely safe and healthy in your job at all times. Whatever needs to be provided to you to keep you healthy should be, and your employer shouldn’t put you in the path of anything that may damage you. There are a wide range of illnesses and injuries which can be claimed for, should your job be the cause of your illness. Here are some of the most common.

    Hearing Loss

    Working in any loud environment can cause permanent deafness. Loud environments can be factories or clubs, if the level of noise exceeds a normal level then it is classified as a loud environment. Your employer should give you hearing protection while you are at work, or allow you to take breaks in less noisy environments so that your hearing can recover. If they have not taken any precautions towards your hearing then you may have a good case for compensation.

    Respiratory Problems

    Lots of illnesses that present respiratory problems come from dust and other particles in the air at work. If you work in a manual job with lots of debris in the air then you should be provided with a mask to protect your airways. If you haven’t then this could lead to a host of illnesses, from Asthma right up to Asbestosis.

    Repetitive Strain Injury

    This is caused by doing the same movement over and over again, and is just as common in offices as it is in manual environments. Your employer should provide you with plenty of breaks if you are doing the same thing over and over again, and should also provide you with equipment to ease any strain this may be causing you. If you work at a computer then wrist rests for your keyboard and mouse can help, and so on.
