Factories and other industrial environments have long been recognised as dangerous places to work and unfortunately thousands of workers are still injured every year. Workers in many factories and industrial sites are exposed to high levels of dust and noise, dangerous chemicals and other harmful substances. Because of this they should always be provided with suitable, protective equipment and warned of the risks these chemicals and substances pose to their health.
Being exposed to chemicals and other substances such as asbestos can cause a wide range of diseases, some of which are very serious. All too often workers that are exposed to harmful substances do not realise that their health has been put at risk and will therefore be unaware of the damage that has been done until they become ill, which can be many years later.
If you are told that you’re suffering from an industrial related disease or illness, you will need the best medical treatment available.
If you’ve had an accident at work in a factory or an industrial environment or have developed an industrial disease such as asthma, dermatitis, mesothelioma or asbestosis you may be able to make a personal injury claim, even if the company you worked for is no longer trading.
