The services of an accident solicitor in Fenland may be required in cases that don’t necessarily fit the type of accident that is commonly seen as what a claim is made for.
For example, many people would be familiar with the idea of someone claiming compensation because they’ve been injured in a road traffic accident, sustaining whiplash because another driver bashed into their car at a junction – but what about cancer occurring as a result of decades of exposure to dangerous substances in the workplace?
You can claim for industrial diseases
Such a case is an example of “industrial disease”, which is different from an accident at work such as a slip and fall.
In industrial diseases, the onset of the condition cannot be pinpointed. You could be absolutely fine for years working under the same conditions, yet soon after you retire, you might find that you have a debilitating lung condition, for example.
How can an accident solicitor in Fenland help?
If you are suffering from an industrial disease, you could be eligible to claim compensation – and this is where a no win no fee* accident solicitor comes in. They will act on your behalf, liaising with all the relevant parties, and they will aim to secure you a payout.
Payouts in industrial disease claims may be large, because you might need nursing care, adaptations to your home, and a range of other things to ensure that your quality of life is maintained.
It is worth considering making a claim, because why should you have to suffer as a result of years of exposure to harmful chemicals, or prolonged use of machinery without proper safeguards in place?

The usual time limit doesn’t apply
With most claims for personal injury, there is a deadline of three years from the date of your accident. If you attempt to begin your claim once this three-year cut-off is up, then it’s bad luck.
But since the date of an industrial disease’s onset cannot be determined exactly, the time limit is extended.
