A secondary smoke inhalation accident claim can be filed when the smoke has led to the development of a disease or illness. A solid case for such a claim occurs when patrons of a bar or restaurant are smoking inside the establishment or workers at an office are smoking and the building owner is negligent for not taking action to stop it. By calling Accident Advice Helpline today, you can place a claim for your injuries related to secondary smoke inhalation.
Achievements of a personal injury claim
Victims of personal injury have a variety of reasons for making a personal injury claim. The main reason is to claim compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the personal injury. In many instances, compensation can be for the reimbursement of expenses connected to the personal injury, including medical bills or loss or earnings while the injured party is off work. Since smoking causes so many related illnesses, the compensation for secondary smoke inhalation accidents can be tremendous due to the potentially extensive medical bills and other costs.
Another reason why the injured party could wish to file a personal injury claim is to obtain justice for themselves or lost loved ones. The tobacco industry is often a target of personal injury claims due to the harmful products that are released into the air. When a judge finds in favour of the injured, it can often be closure for the family or victim and they may be able to move on with the rest of their lives. If a non-smoking victim develops an illness as a result of secondary smoke, they may feel more able to find peace, knowing that justice has been served.
Another achievement could be a change in procedure so others will not come down with an illness in the future. This is a major driving factor for those who have been afflicted with a secondary smoke-related illness. By placing a major personal injury claim against a tobacco company for compensation, the case could be unprecedented and used to change the smoking laws in the United Kingdom.
