    Accident Solicitor in Highcliffe


    If you are in need of an accident solicitor in Highcliffe because of an injury sustained in an accident that was no fault of yours, then you need one who is a specialist in claiming compensation for victims of accidents. It might be that you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, in which case you need an accident solicitor in Highcliffe with a track record of winning compensation claims for such cases.

    There are so many accidents which befall us that are certainly not our fault, but sometimes it is unclear as to whose fault the accident actually is. If it was not yours, however, it is up to you and your accident solicitor in Highcliffe or elsewhere to work out who was at fault.

    Pesticides and illnesses

    If you work on a farm or have an allotment, you may not work with organic (or natural) pesticides and fertilizers. Many pesticides, which include herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and chemicals used for killing rodents or molluscs (such as slugs and snails) can be dangerous. Pesticides are not only used in agriculture, but are also used in the textile industry to destroy pests which could lurk in cloth, and of course we use slug pellets in our gardens in the UK and these are also pesticides. Many pesticides are poisonous and can cause vomiting, skin problems, abdominal pain, headaches and respiratory problems. If you work with pesticides and have any of these symptoms you should go to your GP and have a blood and urine test.

    It is possible that you might need emergency hospital treatment as a result of coming into contact with pesticides. If you have any of the above symptoms and do not seek immediate medical treatment your claim for compensation for an illness caused by handling pesticides could be made weaker.

    There are regulations with regard to the handling of pesticides and these are laid down in the “The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations” (COSHH).You should be provided with protective clothing by your employer if you work with pesticides. If you have been provided with such items and have used them, but have still acquired symptoms of pesticide poisoning, then you have grounds for a claim for compensation. If you have followed the manufacturers’ guidelines plus those of COSHH then you have a claim against the manufacturers of the pesticides.
