    Bedwas accident claim solicitors

    When people think about personal injury claims their instinctive and understandable reaction is to think in terms of single, one-off accidents. And while this is understandable it doesn’t tell the entire story. You may also consider other longer term conditions as part of a compensation claim, so this article will focus on two things; what type of claims this might include and how you can find Bedwas, accident claim solicitors with the skills to help you out.

    About Bedwas, accident claim solicitors

    The most common types of accidents we deal with are those caused by road traffic accidents,  slips, trips or falls in the street or for accidents in the workplace. However we also deal with a significant number of long term conditions.

    For example, factory workers are often found to be suffering with a condition called industrial deafness contracted from spending too much time over their careers working in a noisy environment.

    If that has been the case, and their employer did not take action to guard against it, then there is a distinct possibility that they may be liable to compensation as a result.

    An employer’s responsibilities

    When you go to work, your employer is responsible for a number of things. They must take all reasonable precautions to ensure that the environment in which you work is safe and secure.

    When there is a risk of long term deafness they can do a number of things such as providing ear defenders and muffling equipment for the machines, to reduce the noise pollution. They can also restrict the number of hours workers spend in a noisy environment which will in turn ease the impact on their hearing. If they have declined to do this, there is a good chance that they could be deemed negligent, in which case a claim would be appropriate.

    Making a claim

    In order to claim compensation you will need to be assessed by a doctor. They will be able to diagnose the condition, and if they agree that this is industrial deafness, you will have a strong case to bring to your employer.

    To get advice from a legal expert, it is a good idea to consult someone who has experience in this type of law, you should not only look for professionals who have experience in employment law, but who have particular experience with this type of claim as they will be in the best position to help you out.
