Is your work making you ill?
Even if your employer takes health and safety seriously, there is still a chance that you could be injured at work, or that you could become unwell. Although your employer may not have intentionally flouted their responsibilities, they could still be held liable if they are responsible for your illness.
Of course, in order to determine whether or not you are suffering from an industrial illness, you will need to seek medical help. By assessing your condition and examining the symptoms of industrial illness, doctors should be able to tell whether your illness is caused by your work.
Dealing with the symptoms of industrial illness
In order to deal with your symptoms effectively, doctors will first need to make a proper diagnosis of your condition and you may need to give them details about your job role and working conditions.
If you’re suffering from repetitive strain injury, for example, your working conditions may need to be adapted in order to prevent the condition from worsening. Alternatively, if you’ve developed dermatitis due to being exposed to certain materials, your employer may need to issue you with specific protective equipment so that you aren’t at risk.
How you plan on dealing with the symptoms of industrial illness will depend on what type of illness you’ve developed but you should certainly consider taking legal action. Providing you can show that your work has caused your illness and you’ve received medical help for the illness, there’s a good chance that you’ll be awarded compensation for your suffering.
How much is your claim worth?
The amount of compensation you will receive will depend on the severity of your illness, your prospects of recovery and the impact the illness has had on your life.
