Industrial disease work injury compensation in Oldham
As our medical understanding has increased, so has the knowledge that various substances can cause various health conditions.
Many people know about the dangers of working in dusty environments and their link with asthma and other breathing difficulties. Those who work on noisy environments often develop hearing problems if appropriate protective action is not taken. Individuals who have been exposed to asbestos often develop diseases such as lung cancer, mesothelioma or pleural plaques.
However, there are still some conditions that don’t quite get as much recognition, and some people may not even be aware of their link with industrial disease. These people may find that they could be entitled to make a claim for work injury compensation in Oldham if they have developed these conditions as a result of their work.
One such condition that you could be entitled to seek work injury compensation in Oldham for is bladder cancer.
Although, in theory, anyone can develop bladder cancer (and there are various types), there is a strong link to suggest that there are certain factors that significantly increase the risk. One such factor is smoking. However, it is not possible to make a claim for compensation in Oldham in this situation, unless you have been exposed to excessive passive smoking as part of your work.
There are some industries in which bladder cancer is relatively common, often due to exposure to certain materials and substances in work. For example, several of the chemicals known to cause such cancers and therefore increase an individual’s risk of developing this disease are often found in manufacturing industries.
This includes a variety of situations such as :
As a result people who work in chemical plants, as machine setters, mechanics, painters and decorators and miners can often be exposed to potentially harmful chemicals. If they go on to develop bladder cancer as a result of this exposure then they could be entitled to make a claim for compensation in Oldham.
