Personal injury claims in Maldon
Industrial illness or disease is the name given to any illness or condition that has occurred in the workplace, usually due to poor working conditions or exposure to a harmful or toxic substance. There are a large number of types of disease that can be covered by this term, but it can include occupational asthma, chemical poisoning, respiratory diseases and dermatitis, as well as many others.
In the workplace, your employer has a duty to protect you from hazardous substances and situations, and to minimise the risk of accident or injury. If you work with hazardous chemicals, your employer should have:
- Investigated the option of using less harmful chemicals
- Limited your exposure to/contact with them
- Provided you with protective clothing
- Given you training in handling dangerous chemicals
- Ensured proper processes and procedures are in place, include evacuation and rescue procedures
If you believe that your employer failed to meet their legal requirements to protect you and that this in turn caused the accident, you might be eligible to make personal injury claims for compensation. However, workplace accidents and particularly industrial diseases or illnesses can be very complex cases – your exposure to the material or chemical that caused your illness may have been some time ago and a link between your employment and your illness will have to be proved.
That’s why it’s important to get advice and representation from a trusted source. Not only will an experienced lawyer know the legislation surrounding this case and be able to tell you exactly what to claim for, but also cases where a solicitor represents the client attract on average a 275% higher pay out than those without.
