Industrial illnesses and diseases
Your employer has a legal duty to protect you against industrial illnesses and diseases just the same as they should make sure you are not injured in an accident while you are at work. Most industrial conditions are avoidable if the proper precautions are in place, and it is the responsibility of your boss to make sure they are. If they fail in this duty, you may be looking for solicitors in Caersws to help you make a compensation claim.
Wearing masks, gloves and other protective clothing may help when it comes to such dangers as being exposed to asbestos or dangerous chemicals. Ear protectors can help prevent industrial deafness and latex gloves can stop skin problems if you have to work with certain products such as strong detergents.
Normally, there is a three-year deadline after an accident to make a claim. But this doesn’t apply in the case of industrial condition claims, because it is impossible to pinpoint the exact onset of the disease, and some of them can take years to show themselves. Therefore you have three years from the date your illness is diagnosed to get your claim started.
But call us to be your solicitors in Caersws as soon as you can, because it always pays to get started with your claim as soon as possible – and you need to choose a law firm that will treat you with empathy and sensitivity. That law firm is Accident Advice Helpline.
