Are you entitled to make a claim for an industrial disease?

If you have developed an industrial disease and you can prove that your illness is work related you need to seek industrial disease advice as soon as possible from one of the personal injury lawyers at Michael Lewin Solicitors.

There is a time restriction involved in making any type of industrial disease claim so it is prudent that you start legal proceedings if you have been advised that you have an eligible industrial disease case as soon as possible. You need to have had your disease diagnosed by a medical professional and have evidence that you are suffering from the disease before you can start a claim. You must also be able to link the industrial disease directly to the conditions in which you had to work.

You will need a registered legal professional to represent you if you are thinking about making a personal injury claim for industrial disease compensation; the laws surrounding industry caused diseases employer negligence and making a compensation claim are very complicated. Only the most experienced and qualified solicitors are employed at Michael Lewin so you can relax and come to terms with your illness whilst the best executive is working on your behalf to secure the compensation you are entitled to.

You could benefit from thousands of pounds in compensation if you make a claim for the industrial disease you have developed.

The amount of compensation you are awarded will be determined by many factors. One of the factors that will be taken into account is the amount of time you have been suffering with the disease and the amount of time you are expected to suffer from the disease. If you disease is curable you will be awarded a different amount than someone who has the disease for life. If you have missed out on the chance to work because of your illness then your loss of earnings will be considered. Other factors that are also important are any physical and emotional losses you have had to suffer as a direct result of your disease; being able to spend quality time with family members and carry out hobbies that you enjoy also have implications on the amount of compensation you will receive.
