Can I claim for work-related illnesses?

Slater and Gordon have extensive experience in illness compensation claims from a wide variety of different illnesses caused by negligence, such as:

Whether your illness was work related or caused in a public place, if it was due to someone else's negligence, you can claim compensation.

Work related illnesses often start with minor symptoms and the full extent of the illness may only be diagnosed after you've already retired. However, you can still claim illness compensation from your former employer. You have up to three years from the point your illness was diagnosed to start a compensation claim. We have successfully helped clients with the following illnesses:

How much can I claim for an illness?

Your compensation depends on your illness and the consequences it has on your life. Some illnesses can cause long term effects such as chronic fatigue, rheumatologigal conditions or psychological problems. These are factored into the calculation of your final compensation settlement. Your claim for pain and suffering could be worth several thousand pounds. Contact us to establish your full legal position.
