Thousands of people are injured each year in the workplace with many more suffering illnesses later in life as a result of exposure to dangerous chemicals and substances in their place of work.

Asbestos related illnesses and industrial illnesses can take between 10-40 years to develop but can have a lasting effect on your quality of life. Your employer has a duty of care to protect you and your fellow employees, however, if they fail to do this then you could be entitled to take legal action.

Exposure to asbestos or other dangerous substances can occur if you have worked in a building that had asbestos with industrial illnesses being exceptionally common for those working in the construction industry. Exposure to asbestos can result in mesothelioma, asbestosis and even lung cancer.

Making a Personal Injury Claim

Normally, when making a personal injury claim, there are strict time limits when you can make a claim within. However, with asbestos-related illnesses, you can take legal action three years from the diagnosis of the illness.

While you can make a claim if you suffer a workplace illness as a result of exposure to dangerous substances in the workplace, it is also possible to make such a claim if a loved one has been diagnosed with such a disease. To make a claim, you will need to have as much evidence as possible to support your claim including a medical report, proof of employment in a certain location and some proof that you were exposed to dangerous chemicals. This can be done through witness statements and even similar cases.
