About illness and accident claims
Many people associate compensation with something you claim after being involved in an accident, but you could also be entitled to make a claim if you have become ill through no fault of your own as well.
Statistics reveal that there are over 1.1 million people living with an industrial illness. These illnesses can range in severity and have a number of devastating side effects, with many sufferers left to face a lifetime of chronic pain. If you have become ill, you may be able to seek compensation if you can prove that the negligence of an employer or other party has lead to the onset of the disease.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have over fourteen years of experience handling claims involving these sorts of illnesses, and can help you receive the highest possible payout if someone else’s actions have caused you an illness.
What is an industrial illness?
An industrial illness or disease is one that develops because of unsafe or improper work conditions.
Hazardous substances such as asbestos for example can lead to a number of illnesses, such as mesothelioma and even lung cancer. Working around other carcinogenic substances without proper safety equipment can also lead to illness, as indeed can any substance if handled without the adequate training and care.
It is the legal responsibility of your employer to ensure your health and safety, and make sure all government-mandated safety standards are being adhered to. This means providing employees with all the proper training, enough breaks throughout the day and appropriate apparel at all times. If they fail to do this and you have become ill, you could be well within your rights to claim compensation and make unexpected accident claims in Tamworth.
Seeking compensation for an illness goes beyond just being reimbursed for the illness itself. Depending on the extent of your suffering, you may be unable to return to work, or forced to pay for extensive medical bills out of your own pocket. This shouldn’t be the case, and at Accident Advice Helpline, we’ll fight to ensure you are remunerated for all financial, physical and emotional repercussions of your illness.
