Claiming compensation for industrial illnesses
If you’ve become ill as a result of your own, you may want to take legal action. By working with legal professionals, such as injury solicitors in Little Weighton, you could successfully obtain compensation for your illness. In addition to this, you may be able to raise awareness of the situation and prevent other people from becoming unwell.
Can injury solicitors in Little Weighton help you?
Industrial illness is the umbrella term given to any condition or illness that has resulted from either carrying out a specific job or being exposed to hazardous substances over a period of time at work. Some examples are:
- Pleural thickening;
- Dermatitis; and
- Hand-arm vibration syndrome.
Though certain jobs carry greater risks to your health, your employer has a responsibility to ensure your health and safety, no matter what your job. Risk assessments should be carried out and the appropriate safety precautions should be in place. Protective equipment and clothing should be provided to minimise any danger to you. You should also receive appropriate training and instructions to make sure you can work safely.
Your health and well-being should be a priority to your employer. If it isn’t, and you become unwell as a result, injury solicitors in Little Weighton may be able to help you obtain compensation.
