Are you entitled to industrial disease compensation?
If because of your job you have developed an illness or contracted a disease, you have the right to make a claim for compensation against your employer.
Whilst at work you should be protected from harm. If your employer has failed in their duty of care and you have suffered illness a call to Imperium Law can get you the settlement you deserve.
Can you claim?
Since the introduction of the Health and Safety at Work act 1974 all employers are required by law to protect their employees from harm.
Whilst most employers follow health and safety guidelines, accidents and mistakes still happen.
You are entitled to make an industrial disease claim against your employer for illnesses caused by your job.
When mistakes happen your employer can be held accountable. By bringing a claim you could not only get compensation for your pain, injury and loss of earnings, you can also highlight health and safety failings to prevent others from developing the same disease.
At Imperium Law we would rather work related diseases did not happen. However in spite health and safety laws they still do, and when we are contacted by a worker wanting to make a claim we dedicate ourselves to achieving the best settlement possible for your circumstances.
Asbestosis is an industrial disease affecting the respiratory system which causes chronic scarring to lung tissue. Sufferers experience shortness of breath and are at risk of developing lung cancer.
Symptoms may not become apparent for years after exposure to asbestos, which means that even though few workers are exposed today, asbestosis cases are still being diagnosed where workers were exposed decades ago.
As well as claiming for yourself or a loved one who developed the disease after exposure at work, there have also been successful cases where family members who have become ill after handling asbestos covered clothing have received compensation.
We are dedicated to getting our clients compensation for pain, suffering, injury, loss of earnings and on-going care.
Compensation totalling £705,000 was paid to a widow who developed cancer after exposure to her husband’s asbestos covered works overalls.
Mrs H’s husband had been exposed to asbestos working as an electrician, he developed cancer because of his exposure and died in 2009. Within a few years of his death Mrs H started experience symptoms similar to her husband’s.
After clinical investigation she was diagnosed with cancer and given just 6 to 12 months to live. Mrs H decided to make a claim after it was proved her cancer had been caused by washing her husband’s works clothing.
