Do you think you might be entitled to get some toxic substances compensation advice? In reality, you are entitled to find out if an injury or illness you have incurred because of someone else’s negligence might indeed put you in a good position to claim compensation.
It’s important to note that people do not do this for the financial benefit. Very often, they do it because they have suffered pain and discomfort and their lives have been turned upside down, at least for a short period of time. The law says anyone who has been affected in this way and has received injuries or suffered illness through the negligence of a third party can make a claim. Does this include you?
What is a toxic substance?
Put simply, this can refer to anything that is hazardous to health. It could be poisonous in some way, or cause harm in another manner entirely. If a substance is toxic it could enter the body in a variety of ways. The most obvious two are to breathe in toxic fumes or to get a toxic substance on the skin.
The risk of being exposed to toxic substances is perhaps greater in certain workplaces. However, just because the substances might be present, it doesn’t mean everyone working in that environment will be in danger. Most employers will have performed risk assessments and provided their workers with personal protective equipment (PPE). PPE can make a huge difference and keep workers safe even when they are constantly in close proximity to toxic materials.
Is there a chance you could claim?
Lives can be irrevocably changed when accidents happen. This applies just as readily to something amiss in the workplace as it does to accidents in public locations. If you have suffered because you came into contact with a toxic substance, you do have a right to find out whether you could be paid a sum in compensation.
