Industrial diseases can have an extremely severe impact upon your life, and their exact onset is difficult to determine – but they are a form of personal injury.
This means that if you suffer from one, you can claim compensation through solicitors in Lybster.
What is an industrial disease?
An industrial disease is a condition that arises as a result of exposure to dangerous substances in the workplace, or unsafe conditions at work. It is clear, then, that it happens as a direct result of work – but what type of diseases are they?
- Poisoning from chemicals such as benzene
- Cancer caused by chemicals used in manufacturing
- Lung cancer caused by diesel fumes
- Mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos
- Vibration white finger caused by using heavy machinery that vibrates
This is not an exhaustive list, by any means. But this should give you some idea of the kinds of industrial disease that solicitors in Lybster deal with every day at Accident Advice Helpline.Open Claim Calculator
What payment am I likely to receive for industrial disease?
Every case is different, but you can obtain an estimate. Simply take the 30 second test on our website and you will find out whether you qualify to claim compensation, and you will get a calculation of the likely value of your claim.
Industrial diseases are a little more complex than other personal injuries, and there is variation from case to case. Solicitors will take on your case and fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
The payment will include an element for the injury and distress caused, and another element to reimburse you for the expenses that you have incurred, including loss of earnings. Many people never work again when they suffer from an industrial disease.
