Do you want to make an occupational disease claim?

These conditions and syndromes are preventable by reducing or eliminating hazardous exposures in the workplace.

They are often difficult to recognise because their symptoms may mimic non-occupational illness. Additionally there often exists a long latency period between the exposure and manifestation of symptoms of the illness.

Although compensation claims for personal injury generally must be brought within 3 years of the cause, the time limit may be extended where the date of the knowledge of your injury and its cause is some time after the damage arose.

It is important however, that you do not delay in obtaining legal advice for an occupational disease claim. As soon as you become aware that you may have symptoms you should see your doctor immediately for a medical assessment and if necessary you should seek legal advice immediately.
