“Health and safety has gone mad!”
With some suggesting that health and safety in the workplace is stifling British commerce and industry, it seems odd to think that companies just like Accident Advice Helpline, along with our expert injury lawyers in Woodall, are helping people every day to claim compensation as a result of something happening that led to them being injured.
Hundreds of years ago, there was no such thing as health and safety. Whilst we may moan in 21st century Britain about the perceived red tape of safety in the workplace, we would have hated the unguarded machines of many years ago. Very little care and attention were paid to making our working environments safe back in those days.
Take industrial diseases, for example – from industrial asthma through to the dreadful lung diseases associated with working with asbestos unguarded – and take a look at those people trying to live life with these life-changing illnesses. If health and safety had been in force back when they worked in quarrying, mining or construction industries, they wouldn’t be house-bound, attached to oxygen cylinders fighting for every breath.
Before you moan too much about health and safety ‘going mad,’ take some time to think of those clients who legal specialists such as injury lawyers in Woodall, along with Accident Advice Helpline, are helping to claim compensation.
Exempt from the three-year rule
The majority of compensation cases must be made within a three-year period since the accident happened, but industrial diseases are exempt from this rule, mainly as a result of the fact that some of these diseases take many years to take a grip of the victim.
As our injury lawyers in Woodall will tell you, there is a list of certified or recognised industrial diseases by the UK government as being eligible for compensation claims. Specialist injury lawyers in Woodall will be able to help you further and tell you almost instantly if your industrial disease is part of the list.
Of course, it is not just about disease, but about injuries as well. Some clients have been injured in the line of duty, possible as a result of unsafe practice or negligence.
