What is an Industrial Disease Claim?

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, employers are obligated to maintain safe working conditions and shield employees from health hazards. Unfortunately, many fail to meet these standards, leading to employees suffering from various industrial diseases and illnesses.

If you’ve been affected by this, OH Parsons can assist you in pursuing an industrial disease claim against your employer or another responsible party, ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries or losses.

How Does the Industrial Disease Claims Process Work?

We guide our clients through every stage of the industrial disease claims process, making it as straightforward as possible. Here’s how it works in a nutshell:

  • Initially, we’ll gather information from you about your illness, its onset, and its impact on your daily life. You can provide any supporting documents, such as medical records. We may also collect details about your workplace and potential witnesses.
  • Next, we’ll send a formal ‘letter of claim’ to the company responsible for your illness, notifying them of your intention to pursue compensation. If they have Employer’s Liability Insurance, their insurer will handle the proceedings.
  • If an agreement isn’t reached, we may escalate the matter to court. Throughout this process, OH Parsons remains committed to supporting you until your claim is resolved.

Frequently Asked Questions

An industrial disease, also known as an occupational disease, is a health condition caused or aggravated by exposure to hazards or conditions in the workplace. These diseases can result from exposure to harmful chemicals, dust, noise, radiation, repetitive tasks, or other occupational hazards.

The time limit for making an industrial disease claim varies, but in most cases, you have three years from the date of diagnosis or the date you became aware that your condition was caused by your work environment.

Evidence to support your industrial disease claim may include medical records documenting your diagnosis and treatment, witness statements from colleagues or other individuals who can attest to your working conditions, documentation of any safety measures or protective equipment provided by your employer, and records of any complaints you made about hazardous working conditions.

Compensation for industrial disease claims is calculated based on factors such as the severity of your illness, the impact on your ability to work and carry out daily activities, the cost of medical treatment and rehabilitation, and any financial losses incurred due to your illness, such as lost wages or future earning capacity.

At OH Parsons, we operate on a “no win, no fee” basis for industrial disease claims. This means that you won’t have to pay any upfront legal fees, and you only pay if your claim is successful. Our fees are typically recovered as a percentage of the compensation you receive, ensuring that you can pursue your claim without financial risk.
