If you need an accident legal expert in Tredegar for a work-related personal injury compensation claim, you’re not alone. The workplace is where you earn a living, but it’s also the place where you could be deprived of the opportunity to earn your living through having an accident and getting injured.
The facts about work-related injuries
The latest figures from the HSE are quite sobering. Consider the fact that 27 million working days during the financial year are lost as a result of injury or illness that is related to work.
The cost to society caused by ill health and injuries in the workplace runs to almost £14 billion – and this doesn’t take account of cancer. Some cancer cases are work-related, and are examples of industrial diseases, the onset of which may occur years after working in a particular job.
On the subject of industrial diseases, in 2012, there were more than 2500 deaths from mesothelioma, which is caused by exposure to asbestos.
What to do about contacting an accident legal expert in Tredegar if you are injured at work
If you have a work-related injury, you should seek the services of an accident legal expert in Tredegar, or wherever, as soon as possible. Obviously, your first priority should be your health, so make sure that you seek medical attention first of all.
But don’t delay in getting in touch with a no-win, no-fee solicitor, because there is a three-year limit from the date of an accident for a claim to be started.
There’s an exception for industrial diseases, such as mesothelioma, which are distinct from other workplace injuries, such as those sustained in trips and falls or machinery incidents. It’s not possible to determine the exact date of disease onset, so the time limit can be extended by an accident legal expert in Tredegar.
