When we go to work, we do so to achieve a better quality of life for ourselves and our families. It is our right to be safe and protected while doing so.
Sadly, however, many of us find ourselves suffering ill health, pain, or worse as a result of the work we regularly carry out – conditions which are known collectively as Industrial Diseases. These result in us having to make industrial injury claims to cover medical bills and loss of earnings.
The Health and Safety Executive is responsible for categorising what can be classed as an Industrial Disease – a list that currently includes a number of occupational complaints, conditions and ailments – from occupational stress and back disorders, to terminal illnesses – including asbestos cancers.
Here in the North West, Hattons are highly experienced in achieving successful claims for people affected by Industrial Diseases, and we are able to offer specialist advice on the following conditions:
So, if you have been diagnosed with a condition which you feel is related to your work activities or environment, you may be entitled to claim for compensation.
