Industrial disease claims
Industrial disease is a term which is used to describe an illness, injury or disease which has been caused by your work environment. You may have seen it described as industrial illness or industrial injury as well as industrial disease.
Whatever term is used, it still results in the same thing, which is that you have not been adequately protected by your employer and as a result you have been injured, through no fault of your own.
If you have been diagnosed with an illness or condition that has resulted from your current job, or from one you have worked in the past you are likely to feel let down and worried about what the future will bring. We can help you to understand what next steps you can take and also help you be clear about your legal position too, so you know if you can make a claim for compensation.
Types Of Industrial Disease
There are many different types of illnesses or injuries which can happen as a result of the work place, and some of these are:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Contact dermatitis
- Industrial deafness
- Occupational Asthma
- Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI)
- Vibration White Finger
However, if your condition does not feature on this list, it does not mean that you are not able to claim, so please call us so we can talk to you about your situation.
Why Choose Shires Law?
We know there are so many law firms out there to choose from, many of whom are large and employ ‘claims handlers’ who are not legally qualified. We take a different approach. We have chosen to stay as a smaller firm, who only employs qualified solicitors to deal with our clients. We know that we can give you the kind of service you expect in these circumstances, which is a professional but caring approach.
One of the biggest concerns you will probably have is how you will find the money to pay a solicitor to make a claim. The government recently changed the way that personal injury claims are funded which does mean that we cannot now get back all your legal fees from the other side. However, don’t let this put you off as we can get back most of the cost, and you will not pay us a penny until we have settled your claim and you have your compensation in the bank.
We do aim to meet you in person, unlike many of the bigger law firms. We know how important this is to really understanding how your illness has really affected you and your family too. This will help us to achieve the best outcome for you in your claim.
If you want to have a personal approach to your claim and deal only with specialist, qualified personal injury solicitors, then you should contact us today.
