Employers have a duty of care to you
Working in industrial environments can cause you to be exposed to certain conditions which can cause damage to your health, serious health complications and even long term illness. Employers have a duty of care to you as an employee. Your employer should ensure that:
- Health & Safety procedures are in place
- Health & Safety procedures are enforced
- You are protected as you go about your daily work duties
- Full and adequate training is provided

Trust in our industrial disease lawyers
Industrial disease claims need a specialist industrial disease claims lawyer – simple common sense. All personal injury claims bring with them their own problems and complications but perhaps none more so than disease cases. Fortunately Mercury Legal Online has just such specialist disease solicitors ready and waiting to help you every step of the way and will ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
While it is impossible to generalise with industrial disease claims, one of the main problems we encounter is that fact that many industrial conditions do not come to light until many years after the sufferer has either finished work or finished work with the employer responsible for the condition arising. Asbestos related conditions are a good example of this as the conditions caused by asbestos exposure can take up to 60 years to surface. By the time the problem comes to light many people believe that they are either too late to do anything about it or that they cannot do anything about it as their former employer has long since stopped trading – FREQUENTLY THIS ASSUMPTION IS INCORRECT.
Our solicitors have many years of experience in handling all manner of industrial disease claims and are ready and waiting to help you on a no up front fees basis. If you think you have developed any medical condition attributable to your current or former working environments then contact us now free of charge and with no obligation.
