Hiring an accident solicitor in Brent Cross for your accident at work claim
If you have been diagnosed with leukaemia, which is a form of cancer that affects the tissues that form blood cells, you and your family will be devastated. Eventually, when the reality of your situation has sunk in, you will want to know how you ended up with leukaemia.
Sometimes this is just something that runs within families, but more often than not, leukaemia can be traced to a person’s work conditions. Known risk factors include being exposed to ionizing radiation, the type of radiation that causes damage to the internal structure of the body’s cells.
For example, radiologists and other health care workers dealing with radiation, uranium miners and people given radiation treatment as part of their fight against other types of cancer are all at risk. In fact, the risk of developing leukaemia is dose-related, meaning the higher the dose of radiation, the higher the risk someone will develop this type of cancer.
Industrial diseases and accidents at work
While most accidents at work involve fairly straightforward issues such as slips, trips and falls and can be settled quickly and often out of court, industrial disease often develops after many years of exposure to toxic or hazardous substances or through repetitive work practices. For this reason, the usual rule of making personal injury claims within 3 years of an accident at work occurring are often waived to allow cases of industrial disease to be dealt with by the courts and for victims to receive justice and compensation.
Such cases can be extremely complex and involve multiple victims as well as multiple defendants. Therefore, not every accident solicitor in Brent Cross that you contact will be willing to take on a claim for industrial disease. Smaller law firms may not have the man power to handle such cases and, if they do not have a legal partner with a specialist medical background, they may not be able to provide you with the best possible legal representation on a no win no fee basis anyway.
Claims for industrial disease involve many man hours sifting through evidence and medical assessments. No win no fee literally means taking a considerable risk as far as the law firm is concerned.
