Work related illness compensation lawyers

Work related illness

Your employer has a duty to provide you with a safe working environment and to protect you from injury. Unfortunately, every year thousands of employees develop occupational or work related illnesses. These illnesses can have severe consequences affecting ability to work and quality of life.

If you have a work related illness you should not feel embarrassed or reluctant about making a claim. You have the right to seek compensation. Work related illness compensation can help ease your suffering and help to restore your former quality of life.
