Claims for Industrial Diseases
Working conditions can often cause an industrial disease either through dust inhalation, contact with chemical or regular and excessive use of industrial equipment.
Your employer must take steps to prevent you from coming into contact with hazardous substances or situations and provide proper safety equipment. If this has not happened and you have (perhaps at a medical appointment) discovered that you may be suffering from one of the following you should contact O’Neill Injury Solicitors to discuss your claim without delay:
- Industrial Deafness
- Industrial Lung disease
- Vibration white finger
- Hand arm vibration syndrome
What sort of compensation might you receive?
Compensation for Industrial injury is to cover for the pain and suffering and distress caused by the injury and also for any loss of earnings, medical fees, rehabilitation costs- in fact any financial loss that has been caused by the accident.
Are there time limits for bringing a claim?
Yes, there are time limits for bringing such claims and you should contact O’Neill Injury Solicitors to obtain advice at the first opportunity after you are diagnosed or if you suspect you may be suffering from any such industrially induced disease. You are guaranteed to receive prompt and friendly advice from an independent qualified and regulated Solicitor- not a call centre operator or representative of an insurer.
At O’Neill Injury Solicitors you will also speak from the start with a properly qualified and experienced Solicitor who will in most circumstances be the person who takes on the case and who deals with it throughout.
