Industrial Disease Claims

Start your industrial disease claim today

Believing you’re safe at work is easily done, and why should we think any different? Laws are in place to provide a safe workplace for every employee, regardless of the job role or industry. It’s a safe bet that working in a builders yard presents more risk than sitting at a computer, but the duties of an employer set by the principal of “so far as is reasonably practicable’ are vague yet comprehensive enough to transcend theseboundaries.

Simply put, if you have contracted a disease or affliction whilst carrying out your day-to-day duties at work then you are entitled to seek compensation from your employer.

At Walker Prestons we understand that industrial disease claims are about more than seeking compensation for an injustice. Industry related diseases could wreak havoc on your life, depending on the affliction – hearing loss, for example, can be very distressing and stay with you for life. When negligent action leading to industrial disease was not your fault, you’re entitled to make a claim against those liable, so contact us today to start our simple, hassle free claims process.
