    Industrial illnesses

    Every employer has a legal responsibility to make sure that the work environment of their employees is a safe place in which to work. However, even if your employer has done their duty, accidents can still happen. If you have been involved in an accident at work which was not your fault, and you have sustained an injury as a result, then you may be able to make an injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Marble Arch to help you.

    Using a personal injury lawyer in Marble Arch to make a work-related personal injury claim

    The severity of work-related accidents and injuries can vary greatly, from minor abrasions to fatalities. Some jobs are more dangerous than others, such as constructions sites. They are a lot safer than they were 30 years ago, though — for one thing, there is no longer the chance of asbestos exposure.

    The types of industrial diseases that can result in a personal injury claim

    There are numerous industrial illnesses and diseases, some of these can be fatal. Among the most common injuries for which we process claims include:

    • Industrial deafness;
    • Hand-arm vibration syndrome;
    • Repetitive strain injury;
    • Dermatitis;
    • Back injuries;
    • Malignant mesothelioma;
    • Asbestosis;
    • Asbestos-related lung cancer; and
    • Emphysema.

    All employers have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while in the workplace, and this includes taking preventative measures to prevent industrial illnesses and diseases. Even if a victim has left their employment years before, if the illness can be attributed to a particular job then they can still make a personal injury claim.

    Making an industrial illness claim with Accident Advice Helpline

    If you are injured in an accident that was the fault of someone else, you would normally have three years in which to make your claim. However, as these conditions can take so long to develop, that is not always possible. The rules change slightly to allow for this — you have to make your claim either within three years of being diagnosed, or within three years of becoming aware that you had the condition.
