Industrial Disease Claims

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, all employers have a legal responsibility to protect their employees from health and safety risks in the workplace. Employers are also required to provide adequate training to the employees to enable them to perform their job in a safe manner. Every employee should be adequately warned about the risks associated with the work they carry out and should be provided with personal protective equipment (PPE) as required.

Sadly, not all companies comply with their legal obligations or follow best practice and as a result thousands of workers are put at unnecessary risk of injury at work.

At Advokatai Ltd, our team of lawyers has assisted a number of clients in successfully receiving compensations that they deserve.

If you have suffered an industrial disease and would like to discuss the prospects of success of your claim please contact Advokatai Ltd and our friendly team will be happy to assist you.

Our lawyers will give you an honest answer whether you could be entitled to a compensation, and will guide you through every step of the industrial disease claims process.
