Although an individual’s workplace should be one of the safest environments they live under, it is a shamefully regular occurrence that workers begin to contract and develop life-changing illnesses due to the nature of their employment.
The kind of conditions in which individuals are most commonly seen to suffer from vary along with each different form of industry. Some prevalent illnesses and injuries contracted frequently in Scotland include:
Each of these can begin minor but often grow into bigger, life-changing, long-term illnesses.
If you suffer from any disease and you believe it may be attributable to any previous place of work, then you could be entitled to compensatory pay-outs.
Despite this, a diagnosis of any such painful condition can cause extended periods of further anger and frustration due to being unable to definitively determine who is responsible for the suffering. It is difficult for individuals to connect illnesses contracted later in life with periods of employment which ended decades earlier. Peace of mind is, in most cases then, impossible.
However, our team of professional and dedicated lawyers here at Scot Accident Claims have the experience and expertise to offer a calm alternative voice in what can be a very confusing time. We strive to provide effective guidance in helping you ascertain the source of any industrial disease and aim to assist you in achieving any justice you may deserve.It is important to stress that employers have long held a legal duty to ensure that any risks posed by their work place which increase the chances of industrial disease are minimised. This is most commonly seen being done via the provision of protective equipment such as facemasks, helmets and ear defenders.
However, instances where employers have failed to adhere to this obligation have become all too common. This irresponsibility has inevitably led to thousands of innocent individuals unwittingly becoming subject to suffering from permanent illnesses.Breaches of the law which cause such heinous injury should be met with strong and principled opposition.Many potential claimants are regularly seen to be put off seeking justice due to the fact their previous employers are no longer in existence and so believe there is no one able to be held responsible. However, our specialists are able to trace companies and pursue claims through insurers in order to guarantee that compensation can remain a viable possibility, no matter what.
Our team understand how claiming can also be perceived to cause additional emotional and physical tolls on those involved. We therefore strive to ensure the process is kept as stress-free and client-centred as possible.If you suffer from an illness which may have been caused by any of your previous employers then, please, do not hesitate to contact us and allow our team to work towards any justice you may deserve.
