Work Related Illness Claims & Compensation

According to government statistics, work related illness affects 4,540 of every 100,000 people in Great Britain. Acquiring a work related illness whether it is contact dermatitis, occupational asthma or even cancer, will have devastating effects on your lifestyle and well-being.

Carrs Solicitors specialise in work related illness compensation claims. If you have contracted an occupational illness or industrial disease, contact us about making a no win no fee compensation claim.

Carrs Solicitors act on a no win, no fee basis, meaning that we do not charge if the claim fails. If the claim succeeds we seek a contribution from our clients' damages with the majority of the award still going to the client. Remember this is only if the case succeeds so the client will never be out of pocket. (The exception to this is in relation to the Mesothelioma claims we act in where the courts still allow us to charge our full fees to to the insurer and therefore remove the need to seek any contribution from the client).

Your employer has a responsibility to provide you with safety equipment and protective clothing to protect you from toxic substances and any environmental conditions which could lead to an occupational illness or injury. Nonetheless, every year thousands of people develop work-related illnesses, many of which go unreported despite the damage an occupational illness or industrial disease may have on the sufferer's quality of life and ability to work.

Proving that your symptoms were caused by your work environment can be tricky and requires medical evidence and the testimony of expert witnesses. Should you wish to pursue a work related illness compensation claim you should hire a solicitor who specializes in occupational illness cases.
