After taking on your case, we’ll work with an independent medical expert to assess your condition, so we can calculate how much compensation you’re entitled to, and what medical treatment and rehabilitation support you need.
While industrial disease compensation cannot take away your condition, it can help you manage it and access the best care and support that’s available.
Time Limit on Making an Industrial Disease Claim
In England and Wales, you generally have 3 years in which to claim for a personal injury. However, the situation with industrial diseases is slightly different, as any health problems caused by exposure to asbestos, chemicals, loud noises or other workplace hazards may not become apparent for many years, even decades.
The law therefore allows you to claim within 3 years of when you became aware of an injury, illness or disease that is connected to your work.
