The solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get the compensation you deserve for any injuries you sustained as a result of your accident at work.

    An example of injuries that may lead to a Neath accident at work claim

    Due to the many professions and varied nature of jobs, the sorts of injuries people tend to claim for are very varied. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have dealt with Neath accident at work claim for compensation for a vast array of injuries, from cuts and broken bones, to serious head injuries and even death.

    The most common profession for employees to suffer serious injuries is farming, closely followed by construction. This is undoubtedly due to the nature of the work, and the use of lots of heavy plant and machinery.

    Employees are less likely to be involved in an accident now than they have been for decades. This is largely due to the efforts of the Health and Safety Executive, who introduce ever more stringent laws to ensure employers are providing their staff members with a safe working environment. Unfortunately not all employers know, or follow, these laws all the time.

    When the three year rule doesn’t apply

    Suffering an industrial illness or disease is one of the cases where the three year rule doesn’t apply. Many of these diseases are avoidable if employers take the necessary precautions, so if you have developed any of the below diseases after working in a dangerous environment, then you may be entitled to make a Neath accident at work claim:

    • RSI – Repetitive strain injury
    • Dermatitis – This can be caused when working with certain chemicals
    • Malignant mesothelioma
    • Asbestosis
    • Asbestos related lung cancer
    • Emphysema
    • Industrial deafness
    • Hand-arm vibration syndrome

    Industrial illnesses such as these can still be claimed for many years after leaving the employment. In these cases the 3-year claim period begins when you first become aware of the illness, or when the symptoms are officially diagnosed.
