Occupation or industry-related diseases can result from exposure to substances or work processes, often over a long period of time. Examples of the types of diseases include asbestos disease, deafness, dermatitis and vibration-caused injuries, all of which employers can be held responsible for if they are caused as a result of negligence
These types of injuries are often found to be related to the affected party’s occupation later on in life. For this reason, there is a three-year time limit to make a claim. The time limit will normally start from when the injury is realised to have been caused by the occupation, or employment.
These types of cases can be difficult to prove, so it’s important that anyone affected by an occupation or industry-related disease or injury is represented by an independent personal injury law firm, such as Amwells Solicitors.
