As an employee, you have every right to expect a safe workplace. But many people are exposed to unsafe conditions because of the materials they work with or the state of their working environment. And that can have serious implications for your health. At worst, you could be unable to return to work and be permanently disabled, at best your long-term health could affect your ability to enjoy life to the full.
One of the common conditions caused by working with unsafe materials is allergic rhinitis. This is like having hay fever all year round, and can also cause sleep problems. If this has happened to you, and you think it is related to your work, you can seek compensation from your employer for the impact it has had on your life and work.
Your employer has a duty of care towards you, but it is not surprising that many companies don’t want to accept responsibility for causing health problems to their staff. It would be far too expensive to admit liability. They will make every effort to deny being at fault, and you could even find yourself losing your job if you seek compensation – assuming you haven’t already been forced to give up work because of the damage to your health.
However, it is difficult for anyone to cope with taking legal action on their own. This is where a solicitor is invaluable. They have handled many such cases before and have a full understanding of the process required to make a compensation claim for health conditions caused by the workplace.
Solicitors with experience in pursuing work-related compensation claims will be worth every penny. You are much more likely to succeed in a claim if it is handled by someone who is familiar with these situations. Attempting to act for yourself could cost you a lot of money in the long run if you handle the process incorrectly. Indeed, many solicitors act on a no-win, no-fee basis, meaning that you will not risk a substantial bill in the unlikely event that your claim fails. Also, the fact that they are prepared to operate without an upfront fee shows their confidence in a successful outcome. Your solicitor will guide you through this challenging process and build a case that will help you receive the compensation you deserve for the harm to your health.
