Construction sites can be hazardous for employees, and many people who work in these environments are injured every year. However, a workplace doesn’t have to be obviously dangerous for it to present a risk – for example, those who work in offices are susceptible to illnesses like RSI, or carpal tunnel syndrome, which can have a devastating impact on a career.
If you have developed a condition that you feel is directly linked to the work you do, Bray & Bray solicitors can help; even if you have been out of the workplace for some time and have only recently developed symptoms, you may still be able to make a compensation claim for your injuries.
Call our experienced industrial disease lawyers on 0116 254 8871 to begin your claim.
Claiming industrial disease compensation
Our experience in claiming for conditions and injuries caused or exacerbated by work is varied; in the past we have claimed compensation for employees suffering from:
- Mesothelioma (a form of cancer, often developed in the lungs and caused by asbestos exposure)
- Repetitive Strain Injury
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Industrial deafness
- Vibration White Finger
- Exposure to passive smoke
Industrial disease encompasses a wide range of ailments; in addition to the above we are happy to take on claims for skin conditions – often caused by exposure to chemicals – or occupational asthma. Just give us a call to discuss your situation and our team will give you an honest assessment of your chance for claiming compensation.
As well as industrial diseases we regularly deal with claims for accidents in the workplace – visit our workplace accidents page for help with this.
