Who Gets Osteoarthritis?

Women over 50 are the most predominant set of people affected by osteoarthritis and the condition is also recognised as an industrial illness.

Agricultural workers, miners and carpet fitters are the principal set of workers who can acquire osteoarthritis and most of them have worked within that industry, doing a particular job for a number of years.

Employers Have To Protect You From Dangers In The Workplace

Employers have a duty of care to you to protect you from dangers in the workplace and they must adhere to health and safety law. If it can be proven that your employer has not complied with the rules set out by the Health and Safety Executive, then you could make an osteoarthritis claim.

If you have been unable to return to work following the onset of your condition then it is possible you could be reimbursed for the financial losses you have endured. Compensation settlement fees also take into account the level of pain and suffering you have undergone and if you have had to pay towards any medical assistance to aid you with your condition.
