    Injury lawyers in Richmond-upon-Thames tell you the legal position 

    It is illegal for your boss to treat you differently simply because you have made a compensation claim against them and you may have a case to take them to an employment tribunal if they treat you badly.  The same applies for any work colleagues that acts as witnesses for your personal injury claim.

    If you are unable to do your normal job because of your injuries, you would probably leave the employment anyway, but they should still not treat you in a derogatory manner.

    In most cases, if they had followed the health and safety guidelines provided by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) there stands a good chance they would not be facing a personal injury claim because you would have had no need to approach injury lawyers in Richmond-upon-Thames at Accident Advice Helpline.

    If is not just one off accidents they have to take care to avoid.  They also need to avoid the longer term conditions such as:

    • Carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Industrial deafness
    • Asbestos related diseases
    • Vibration white finger
    • Repetitive strain injuries
    • Illnesses related to exposure to chemicals and other dangerous substances

    These are just a sample of the illnesses and diseases that are more long term and if you contract one of these because of your employer’s negligence, you still have the right to make a personal injury claim.  Normally any claim has to be made within three years of the accident, but because industrial diseases can take many years to develop, you have three years from the date of diagnosis.
