The issue of industrial diseases is a contentious one for some people, and in the past, it was commonly believed that people simply accepted the risks that came with certain jobs. However, this is no longer the case, and instead, people in these fields of work are entitled to be protected by their employer. If the result of being in that role is getting an illness which would mean they can no longer do the job, they deserve to be compensated for what they have lost as a result, through no fault of their own.
There are a number of different types of industrial diseases a person can suffer from, which can vary depending on the type of work you do or did previously.
If you see any symptoms of any work-related illnesses, the first thing you should do is ask your employer for an occupational health assessment. They will decide whether it is necessary to make any changes to your working environment. You should also speak to your doctor about any symptoms and get any necessary medical treatment as soon as you can.
It is important to note that you should claim compensation even if you no longer work at a company. People who have suffered an illness due to exposure to asbestos can still claim because it can take a good few years before the symptoms are clearly displayed.
Our specialist asbestos claims solicitors have helped many asbestos disease sufferers and their families claim compensation.
The Larcomes Industrial Diseases team has specialised since the late 1980’s, in representing asbestos disease sufferers and their families in dealing with compensation claims for mesothelioma, asbestos-related pleural thickening, asbestosis and asbestos-related lung cancer. Larcomes charge no upfront fees and work on a “no win, no fee” basis and the team have achieved many hundreds of settlements for those suffering from all types of asbestos-related illnesses.
We understand that sufferers may find it difficult to come to the office to meet us in person at such a stressful time, so we will always offer home visits to sufferers and their families across the UK.
Larcomes have never acted for Defendants in any mesothelioma or asbestos-related claims, and we guarantee that all clients will keep 100% of the compensation with no deductions for legal fees.
