Could you claim for a work-related illness?
When people suffer a physical injury at work, they often go on to make a claim for compensation. However, you may not realise that you could be eligible to obtain compensation for work-related illnesses as well.
If your working environment has caused you to suffer an illness, you should be able to take action against your employer. If the area wasn’t well ventilated, for example, and you contracted an illness, your employer should be held liable.
Similarly, if your employer failed to provide adequate safety precautions, you could take action against them, if you become unwell as a result.
In some cases, companies may not even be aware that they are putting their employees at risk but they can still face compensation claims. Asbestosis, for example, is an illness which occurs as a result of exposure to asbestos. For a long time, no-one realised just how dangerous this could be but people are now suffering from serious illnesses as a result of working with the substance.
If you’ve contracted an illness as a result of exposure to a dangerous substance or chemical at work, it’s important to seek legal help and it’s likely you’ll be able to make a claim for compensation.
