    Why some injuries become worse over time


    If you are unlucky enough to experience an injury that was not your fault, you may be able to claim financial injury compensation.

    These injuries may have been the result of an accident at work, on holiday or perhaps whilst driving your vehicle. An injury to your body can show itself in many different guises.

    Some of the most troublesome ones are the type that develop and become worse over an extended period of time. If you believe that you have an injury that is the result of a past incident, you need to visit your hospital as soon as possible.

    Why does this happen?

    There are many accidents and incidents that can lead to a progressive injury scenario, here are the 3 main causes:

    • Exposure to a harmful product – Individuals that have worked with asbestos can seem fine for 10 years and even more, but when asbestosis hits their system, things will change rapidly for the worse.
    • Sporting Injuries – A stress fracture can remain hidden for years until the bone decides that enough is enough.
    • Medical Negligence – If a doctor administers the incorrect medicine or performs the wrong procedure, the patient’s condition may take weeks or even months to deteriorate.

    How to deal with these issues

    It is incredibly important to gather all of the details that lead up to the progressive condition and you will need to visit your hospital immediately. The problem with this type of condition is finding out whose door to lay the blame at.
