Workplace Compensation is Not Just About Accidents

When people think of civil claims, they think about the disputes that arise after an injury in the workplace, or maybe after a car or bike accident that caused serious harm above and beyond that which would be covered by an ordinary insurance policy.

However, some of the biggest and most significant compensation claims in history have been about illnesses rather than injuries, and while it may be tempting to think that working conditions in the UK are now good enough that long-term illnesses are no longer a result of employment in a particular place or in a particular position, this is sadly not always the case.

Over the last few years the courts have shown that a small number of workers have been exposed directly to asbestos, which can cause the most terrible fatal cancers, through the unsafe practices of certain contractors. A few have been exposed to legionella infection due to poor maintenance and cleaning of machinery, and there are plenty of other examples. Unfortunately, there have been dozens of cases where employees have contracted dangerous or debilitating illnesses in the course of their working day, or were exposed to an unacceptable level of risk of the same.

Contracting an illness can be just as serious as an injury at work, and depending on the circumstances, sufferers may be just as eligible to make a claim against their employer (or former employer). If you think you might fall into that category, don’t hesitate to make an enquiry and find out if you could be due for compensation.
