Industrial disease claims
If you are injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may find yourself being entitled to make a claim for compensation. This is to recover your losses, such as when you are unable to work, as well as for damages to yourself or your possessions.
Many people are affected each year by exposure to chemicals, fumes, noise and vibrations, which can cause serious illness. You may be able to make an industrial injury claim against your employer if it was their fault. If you are in this situation, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Wigton for industrial disease compensation.
You will probably have loss of earnings and care that might be required as a result of your illness, all of which you can claim for. You could also make an injury claim in Wigton for things that you might have to buy to make life easier, such as stair lifts or hearing aids.
When we go to work, we put our trust in our employer that they will provide us with a safe environment in which to work so that we can do the best in our jobs. When this is not the case and we are in danger which leads to serious illness, the claim will be made to your employer’s insurance not your employer directly. This can also ensure that the work environment is made safe for the future.
Employers have a duty of care to their staff. They are responsible for minimising workplace risks by as much as is humanly possible. Where risks are known to exist, health and safety measures must be implemented to prevent these risks from causing injury. Where an employee contracts an industrial disease because their employer was negligent in their duty, the victim is eligible to make an industrial disease injury claim in Wigton.
