If you think you are suffering from an industrial disease, contact our injury lawyer in Crowthorne today to discuss the possibility of making a compensation claim.
Types of Industrial Disease
The term “industrial disease” covers a wide variety of illnesses and conditions that are caused via exposure to certain environments or substances within the workplace. Your injury lawyer in Crowthorne will be able to tell you whether the condition you are suffering from is likely to fall under the umbrella term “industrial disease” and whether you would be able to make a claim.
Alternatively, you could take the Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test. You will find this on our website, and by answering a few short and simple questions regarding your claim and condition it will advise you whether you are eligible to make a claim or not.
Types of conditions which are usually regarded as being caused by an incident within the workplace include:
- Asbestos-related diseases;
- Hearing loss, deafness and tinnitus;
- Skin conditions;
- Asthma; and
- Occupational cancers.
How an injury lawyer in Crowthorne can help
If you think you are suffering from a condition that can be regarded as an industrial disease and would like to make a claim for compensation against your employer or former employer, then your injury lawyer in Crowthorne can help you. All of our injury lawyers are experts in recovering compensation for our clients, regardless of the disease or condition.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we know that no amount of compensation is going to make everything “alright” again. No matter how much money you are awarded, the chances are that the condition you are suffering from will be with you for the rest of your life, and will be something that you might have to battle against every day; nothing will change that. However, we also understand that the financial compensation you can receive is helpful in covering ongoing costs of treatment and care.
Our injury lawyer in Crowthorne has also reported that many of their clients have stated that the most important part of the successful claim is knowing that someone else has had to take responsibility for what has happened to them. It might not change anything in terms of prognosis, but knowing that their employer was responsible because they were negligent seems to bring some sense of closure to their own personal situation.
They also take a lot of comfort from the fact that by highlighting the situation, the employer can no longer plead any form of ignorance, and steps have to be taken to ensure that history does not repeat itself. In some small way, our clients are therefore helping to provide a better future for other employees with the same company in the hopes that no one else has to go through what they have been through.
If you want to find out more about making a claim, contact Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 (mobile). Our injury lawyer in Crowthorne is here for you.
