Falling ill with any kind of disease is always miserable, painful and often dangerous to the sufferer. It is an unfortunate fact of life that some diseases are unavoidable. However, if you have become ill after exposure to a harmful substance while at work, that could have been avoided, it becomes even more frustrating and traumatic.
But people are unaware of the fact that if they have become ill with a work related disease, they could be entitled to a substantial compensation payment. Read on to find out more...
At Legal Request we have expertise and a proven track record in dealing with a variety of work related disease claims. Some of the work related and industrial diseases that have successfully been claimed against include:
By law, your employer is required to protect you from all hazardous substances and situations. In a nutshell, if they have failed to do this and you have suffered as a result, then you could be entitled to a substantial compensation payment.
It is essential you are able to prove blame and/or negligence if your claim is to be successful. For example, if your job requires you to come into contact with dangerous chemicals, your employer is required, by law, to have investigated the possibility of using another, less hazardous substance as a replacement. If you have suffered as a result of this negligence, it is up to you to prove that this process may not have been completed. In such working in environments it is also a requirement that your employer takes every effort to minimise your contact with the dangerous substance - if they fail to do this, they could be proved negligent in court.
Obviously there is a bit more to it than this and a wide variety of different circumstances in which you can make a claim. And for the defendant to make a counter claim.
It is often very hard to prove blame in these cases. Hard but not impossible. And that's where Legal Request comes in. We are an approachable and experienced company, specialising in such claims. We are dedicated to helping you claim back the compensation that is rightfully yours, and we understand that you want your claim dealt with as quickly and as sympathetically as possible. It is our pledge to you that we will do this, and help you keep 100% of the compensation awarded to you.
The person I dealt with was kind and informative. Thank you for all your help.
