All employers have a duty to keep you safe whilst at work.
There are a number of different health and safety pieces of legislations that your employer should comply with.
If they don’t then you may be able to make a claim for compensation against them for any injury that you have sustained whilst at work or during the course of your employment. Even if you do not consider yourself to be ‘employed’ and are deemed by your employer as being self-employed, or a contractor or consultant it may still be possible to make a claim if in the eyes of the law you should properly be deemed to be employed.
Examples of the types of Industrial Disease claims that can be made against your employer are: –
- Asbestosis claims
- Asbestos mesothelioma claims
- Industrial deafness claims
- Industrial dermatitis claims
- Silicosis claims
- Occupational asthma claims
- Vibration white finger claims
- Repetitive strain injury (RSI) claims
If you believe that you have suffered any of the above injuries whilst in the workplace, then even if your employer is no longer trading, we can still assist you to recover the compensation that you deserve.
