    Dedham is a village in northeast Essex. Anyone who lives in Dedham, unless they travel to employment, is unlikely to contract one of the more serious industrial diseases, but they could well contract one of the minor ones that are caused through strains to muscles and equipment that vibrates. Employers all over the UK have a legal duty to protect their staff from such illnesses and conditions and if they fail in this duty, they may have to face injury solicitors in Dedham with a personal injury claim.

    Industrial illnesses and conditions range from comparatively mild conditions such a repetitive strain injury to terminal illnesses such as asbestos related lung cancer.  Your employer should take steps to avoid these happening and if they do not you may be entitled to claim compensation from them, using injury solicitors in Dedham or another legal firm.
