Some professions are, by their very nature, more dangerous than others. Some may appear to be dangerous on the surface, for example, if you work on a motorway you could immediately understand the nature of the potential risks that you could be exposed to on a daily basis.
If you work in a factory you might accept that working with machines, some of them cutting machines, could be equally dangerous.
Of course it is possible to be injured in any environment, but it is not just physical injuries that our injury solicitors in St Marys can assist with.
If you have been injured as a result of developing an industrial disease you can contact Accident Advice Helpline to speak to one of our injury solicitors in St Marys and enlist their help in making a claim for compensation against your employer.
Industrial diseases are, unfortunately, all too common and our injury solicitors in St Marys work on many such cases each and every year.
Some industrial diseases are ultimately more serious than others, for example, mesothelioma is invariably a terminal condition as it is often not diagnosed until late into the disease’s establishment.
Other conditions, for example dermatitis could be short lived and easily managed once an appropriate course of treatment has been established.
One of the most common industrial diseases that our injury solicitors in St Marys work on each year is occupational asthma.
Occupational asthma can be developed within a number of professions and working environments, and the trigger for the onset can very.
One example of the cause of occupational asthma is isocyanates.
Isocyanates is the name given to the family of chemicals that are often used in the manufacturing of foams, varnishes and paints. As a result spray painters, mechanics and some factory workers can be exposed to them through their work.
If you have been exposed to these chemicals, and have been diagnosed with asthma, then you might be able to enlist the help of an injury solicitors to make a claim for personal injury against your employer.
Injury solicitors St Marys
An injury solicitor can help you make a claim by proving that it was your employer’s responsibility to do everything within their power to keep you safe. This is a legal requirement and as such the law is on your side when it comes to making a claim for personal injury.
Your injury solicitor in St Marys will be able to demonstrate how your employer failed to fulfil their responsibility in this respect. For example, it might be the case that your employer failed to perform a risk assessment of your work, or perhaps they did perform one but did not act upon the issues raised in it. This could mean that for some reason you were not provided with the appropriate personal protection equipment, perhaps a face mask or supportive breathing apparatus, to protect you from inhaling fumes and particles known to cause asthma.
