Work-related Illness

Accidents at work can be a result of anything from a slippery floor to faulty electrics, but work-related illness is usually caused by long-standing conditions. Some of the more common work-related illnesses include:

  • Asbestos-related diseases
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Acoustic shock / hearing loss
  • Vibration white finger
  • Repetitive strain
  • Occupational asthma

Employer responsibility

It’s the duty of your employer to ensure that all working environments are safe and free of hazards, covering both physical dangers and conditions that can lead to injury. When this protection is missing or flawed, serious personal injury or even death can result. In the event of injury, you may be entitled to a compensation claim.

How compensation can help

Claiming compensation is often a logical and justified course of action. Financial recompense can help to make ends meet, going an especially long way when your illness also affects other aspects of your daily routine, such as domestic living and your social life. Banner Jones doesn’t have claims managers; instead, every customer gets to speak to a solicitor that specialises in the area. Our team has over 45 years’ experience with high value personal injury claims, so you’re in safe hands from the beginning.

When can I claim for compensation?

If your accident was on work premises and a result of the owner or management failing in their responsibilities, we can make a strong case for a compensation claim. Our team of legal specialists will assess your situation and ascertain whether a claim can be raised. If your injuries have led to physical incapacity, we will also help to arrange rehabilitation support to get you back on your feet.

The first part is free

Through an initial free assessment of your case at our Accident Claim Centre on Glumangate in Chesterfield, we can suggest the best course of action and its likely timescale. No need to make an appointment – just pop in! If required, we can even arrange home visits during the consultation process, helping everything to run as smoothly as possible.

No win, no fee

In most cases we will pursue compensation claims on a “no win, no fee” basis. However, we will consider all possible methods of funding, including legal expenses insurance, trade union funding and private fee agreements
