    Richmond upon Thames accident at work claim

    Occupational asthma – could you make a claim?

    Asthma is an unpleasant and in many cases life-threatening condition that makes it difficult for the victim to breathe.

    It can cause breathlessness, wheezing and other unpleasant symptoms that make it hard to catch breathe, and can lead to what are called asthma attacks. This condition can greatly impact one’s quality of life, requiring the frequent use of a puffer along with other medicines to control it. Although asthma can be caused by a number of different factors, it can be the case that it arises as a result of coming into contact with “trigger” substances at work.

    These can include anything from dust to asbestos, latex, grains and other substances. It is the duty of your employer to conduct a risk-assessment of the workplace to determine the chances of asthma-inducing substances being present. In all cases, an employer is obligated to provide the correct health and safety equipment to minimise the exposure to staff and therefore reduce the risk of occupational asthma occurring.

    If you feel that your employer has failed in this respect and you have developed asthma as a result, you may be able to put things right by making a Richmond upon Thames accident at work claim for compensation.

    Could you be missing out on compensation?

    Many people are not aware that if they have developed a condition or injury as the result of someone else’s negligence that they have a right to compensation.
