An injury claim in Ryde for industrial diseases
Employers have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees, and this includes the prevention of industrial illnesses and diseases. The onset of one of these conditions can take up to 40 years to develop, but that does not mean that you would be barred from making an injury claim in Ryde.
What type of industrial diseases can result in an injury claim in Ryde?
- Malignant mesothelioma;
- Asbestos-related lung cancer;
- Industrial deafness;
- Hand-arm vibration syndrome; and
- Repetitive strain injury.
There are many of these industrial illnesses and diseases, some of which can prove fatal and some will mean you need to make an injury claim in Ryde.
Other industrial illnesses and diseases
Although asbestosis-related conditions are the worst, other industrial conditions are no less debilitating and can cause great stress to the victim. If you have developed any illness, disease or injury because of your job, and your employer has not taken the necessary precautions to prevent this, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Ryde.
Asbestos is one of the worst
Exposure to asbestos is one of the worst industrial problems. In the second half of the last century, asbestos was used extensively on construction, shipbuilding and manufacturing. It is a cheap, flexible and almost indestructible material, but unfortunately it turned out to be very dangerous and was banned in the UK at the end of the century.
Asbestos is made up of millions of fibres, which are perfectly safe providing nothing disturbs them. Even the slightest movement or draft turns them to dust, and it is this that creates the problems. It settles in the lining of the lungs and many years later can turn to an industrial illness, which will possibly mean making an injury claim in Ryde.
Who can help? We can
Any injury that you have sustained because of someone else’s fault or negligence needs the claim making within three years of it happening. As these diseases can take so long to show themselves, that is not always possible. The rules change slightly to allow for this, so you have to make your claim either within three years of being diagnosed or with three years of becoming aware that you had the condition.
