  • Leukaemia
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Emphysema, Lyme Disease
  • Vibration White Finger
  • Repetitive Strain Injury

Are you entitled to Claim for Compensation?

Important Facts

  • Industrial disease claims must be made within 3 years of you becoming aware of your condition – NOT from the original exposure.
  • You do not need to still be employed by your employer to make a claim.
  • You don’t need to have had medical treatment for your condition to
    make a claim.
  • You may claim even if the exposure occurred decades ago.
  • Your former employer may have been taken over or have a new name. This should cause no problems if they are still trading.
  • Your former employer may no longer be trading, however it may be possible to trace and bring a claim against their former insurance company.
