There are many different types of industrial injury
Are you looking to make a compensation claim for an industrial injury that wasn’t your fault? If so we hope we can help you by providing some useful information. There are many different types of industrial injury and some are specific to certain jobs.
For example, miners may suffer from silicosis from drilling Quartz. Inhaling the dust affects their lungs and the result is a long-term respiratory disease.
If you use vibrating tools then you may suffer HAVS or ‘hand and arm vibration syndrome’. This is more commonly known as ‘white finger’. It’s a painful and disabling disorder of the blood vessels, nerves and joints and there is no remedy for it.
Exposure to hazardous substances can cause cancers, chemical poisoning, dermatitis and emphysema, among other diseases
Industrial deafness may occur if you operate machinery without wearing ear defenders or you work in a noisy environment with no ear protection.
Other types of industrial injury
Burns and scalds from working in industrial kitchens or with caustic chemicals can cause horrible injuries.
Head injuries caused by a fall from height on construction sites occur when there’s lack of safety for workers.
The loss of a finger, hand or arm can occur if you’re operating unguarded machinery or machinery you’ve not been trained to operate.
This list of industrial injuries is not exhaustive by any means. If you’ve had any kind of industrial injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence then we would like to help you.
