Industrial Disease

With so many different types of industrial related diseases, it is important that you seek the right advice to try and establish if you have a valid claim. Some diseases have an immediate effect after exposure, while others can take years to develop any symptoms.

It is an employers’ duty to ensure that all employees are protected from hazardous substances and situations whilst at work to minimise the risks to employees.

If you think you may have a valid claim against your current or former employer, contact Alkers today and speak to one of our expert industrial disease solicitors who will be able to advise you of what you need to do next.

You need to be aware of time limits when making a claim for compensation, but we can provide you with all the information you need.
For more information contact us on freephone 0800 00 55 44 or via the enquiry form or request a callback.

No Win, No Fee

We operate on a strictly ‘no win, no fee’ basis, meaning our clients are able to keep the maximum entitlement of the compensation awarded by the court or in any out of court settlement. Our aim is to help our clients get the compensation they deserve for work-related diseases, helping them to cover medical fees and household bills during their recovery period.

If you are working in a very noisy environment, it is your employer’s duty to reduce the noise to an acceptable level or, if this is not possible, to provide you with ear defenders to prevent industrial deafness or Noise Induced Hearing Loss. If your employer provides you with ear defenders, it is your responsibility to wear them and you would not have a valid claim in this situation.

If your job brings you into contact with dangerous chemicals your employer should have already investigated the possibility of replacing the dangerous chemicals with less harmful ones and ensured that you have the minimal amount of contact with them as possible. If your employer has concluded that there is no way around you working with the dangerous chemicals, they should then provide you with protective clothing to wear. Again, it is your responsibility to wear the protective clothing once it has been provided.
