Claiming compensation in Hucknall

0

You may live in Hucknall, and perhaps commute to Nottingham, or perhaps you were on a literary pilgrimage and visited Hucknall to see the tomb of Lord Byron, who was buried in the parish church on your way to visiting Eastwood, the former home town of the novelist and poet, D.H. Lawrence. If you had an accident there for which you were not to blame, you may be considering claiming compensation in Hucknall. You have three years from the date of the accident in which to make your claim.

Claiming compensation in Hucknall

You could also be thinking about claiming compensation in Hucknall, for an illness you contracted which you can prove was the result of someone else’s negligence, perhaps a work-related illness.

Pesticide poisoning

If you work in a factory which produces weed killer, pesticides or rat poison and so on, you may be unlucky enough to suffer from pesticide poisoning. Alternatively you may need to handle pesticides if you work on a farm.

You should be given the appropriate protective clothing if you are in the proximity of pesticides and so on, as even contact with the skin can cause an allergic reaction or dermatitis. Your employer or one of his or her representatives should have given you training in how to handle these dangerous substances. Failure to provide you with the correct protective gear, or to give training, could be construed as negligence, in which case you could make an injury claim in Hucknall or elsewhere.

If some pesticides are ingested it can be fatal. Apart from dermatitis and allergies, you could suffer from abdominal pains, headaches, vomiting and also respiratory problems.

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) aim at protecting all workers who come into contact with these dangerous substances. Employers need to carry out risk assessments so that the dangers are limited. They should provide workers with the appropriate protective gear, and respiratory apparatus if necessary in order to safeguard their health.

Unfortunately members of the public can also be made ill if they happen to be walking along farmland, unprotected, when crop-spraying is taking place.

If you can prove that a person was negligent in their duty towards you, then you may be able to make an injury claim in Hucknall or one from any other location in the UK.
