    Do you need specialist solicitors in Kings Lynn?

    Employers not only have to protect their employees from one-off accidents at work, but they have to try and stop more long-term problems as well. If they fail in this duty and an existing or former employee contracts an industrial disease or condition, then they may have to face specialist solicitors in Kings Lynn with clients’ personal injury compensation claims. However, you don’t need a local solicitor to help you make a claim, just call us, the claims’ experts, at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Industrial illnesses could interest injury solicitors

    All employers should also make sure that their staff members have a safe environment in which to do their jobs. This includes preventing them from getting any industrial illnesses or diseases. Some of these illness can take up to 40 years to develop, in which case a former employee would be entitled to make an injury compensation claim against their old employer, if they can prove that their illness was caused by the negligence of their ex-employer.

    Explaining industrial illnesses and diseases

    There are lots of different types of industrial illnesses and conditions. There are complex health and safety regulations to try and prevent any illness from happening, but sometimes bosses do not comply, and some of the consequences are:

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

    In this list are just a few of the types of illness that can happen in your job and may mean you having to use the solicitors in Kings Lynn to claim compensation.

    In the case of something like asbestos exposure, that should not be happening as asbestos was banned in the UK at the end of the last century. New cases from the exposure of the 1950s to 1990s are still reported daily, and there is still much of it in buildings, ships and other things from that era. If it is found, it has to be removed by specialists as it is very dangerous – a fact that was unknown when it was first used.

    Some industrial conditions are really easy to prevent, it just needs a bit of forethought. Wrist rests can prevent carpal tunnel syndrome for keyboard users, and ear protectors can help to prevent industrial deafness. Some effort on the part of employers could prevent so many cases of industrial illnesses and conditions.
