Cheltenham No Win No Fee Compensation
Working as a farmer can be a dangerous occupation, with dangerous livestock and heavy machinery part of the daily life, but, one thing that might be forgotten is the danger of contracting Farmer’s Lung. This can not only change someone’s life for the worse, but can even cause the death of those afflicted. If this has happened to you, and it wasn’t your fault, then you can make a Cheltenham no win no fee compensation for the compensation and damages you need at this difficult time.
What Is Farmer’s Lung?
Farmer’s Lung is caused by someone inhaling the dust from mouldy hay, and even some other crops commonly grown on farmland, which are known as allergy causing dusts that people, over time, become allergic to. This is medically known as hypersensitivity alveolitis, extrinsic allergic alveolitis, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis.
This mould can occur from the storage of wet or damp crops, which is a prime condition for this mould to grow, and become a fine dust of mould spores once the crops have dried, and are easily lodged in the lungs if they are breathed in. As these spores contain antigens, the immune system mistakenly recognises them as a threat to the body and produces antibodies, causing, over time, hypersensitivity to develop, which can remain for years, and even for the rest of someone’s life. If this has happened to you, and it wasn’t your fault, you have every right to make a Cheltenham no win no fee compensation claim and our solicitors can see what they can do for you.
The symptoms, either acute or chronic, can be somewhat debilitating. These can include shortness of breath, coughing, production of phlegm, and sometimes fever and chills. The acute symptoms can develop after only a short exposure time, and can be easily mistaken for the flu, or sometimes pneumonia. Through further exposure, there is the risk of permanent lung damage, known as pulmonary fibrosis, and cause more severe symptoms, that could result in death.
Early diagnosis can be key in this, not only in helping those afflicted, but also so no one else is harmed in this way. In any case, if you have contracted Farmer’s Lung and it wasn’t your fault, you can make a Cheltenham no win no fee compensation claim for the help you need.
