No win no fee Auchterarder lawyers can help with your industrial illness claim
As well as protecting their employees from one-off accidents, employers have to protect their staff from developing long-term conditions as well. Some of these can take up to 40 years to develop, and the employer may no longer be trading. This does not stop you making a claim though, as it would be whoever provided their employers’ liability insurance that would settle the claim.
No win no fee Auchterarder lawyers may be able to trace who this was, so you should speak to them to see if they can assist in making an industrial injury claim for compensation in your case.
The industrial diseases and conditions that can result in making a personal injury claim using no win no fee Auchterarder lawyers
If your employer does not put the correct procedures in place to protect you from contracting an industrial disease or condition, you may be able to make a personal injury claim. We deal with many such cases every day, but some of the more common ones are:
- Industrial deafness caused by constantly being in loud noise;
- Hand-arm vibration syndrome caused by the excessive use of vibrating tools;
- Repetitive strain injury from always forcing muscles into movements they do not normally make;
- Dermatitis from corrosive substances;
- Malignant mesothelioma from asbestos exposure;
- Asbestosis from asbestos exposure;
- Asbestos-related lung cancer from asbestos exposure; and
- Emphysema from exposure to various dusts, such as coal dust.
Some of these diseases can take up to 40 years to develop, but when they do they can be fatal.
The time limits for making a claim
You have to normally make a personal injury claim within three years of the incident that caused your injuries. Because industrial diseases can take so long to manifest themselves, you have to claim within three years of the diagnosis of the illness.
