Compensation for illness caused at work
If you think you have developed a medical condition or disease as a result of your job and/or working conditions then you may be entitled to compensation.
For instance you may have been exposed to chemicals which have affected your skin or your breathing or you may have developed diseases such as mesothelioma or asbestosis due to exposure to asbestos. Employers have to take steps to protect the health and welfare of their employees. The extent of these obligations has changed over many years and so it is important that you seek advice from one of our specialist lawyers who will advise you what those responsibilities are and what time limits may apply to your case.
You may still be able to bring a claim even if the employer/company no longer exists and in certain situations you can bring a claim even if you were self employed.
