When you hear the name Accident Advice Helpline, you might instinctively think that we only deal with one off accidents such as a slip, trip or a fall. However, many of the people we work with have been living with debilitating conditions all their lives and have only recently worked out the cause. As such if you’ve got a long term condition that was caused by someone else’s negligence then no win no fee* lawyers can offer a risk free way for you to make a successful East Ayrshire no win no fee* claim. This article explores how.
East Ayrshire no win no fee* claims
Many people working in factories and offices around the country today may have spent years being unwittingly exposed to issues which can seriously affect their health. Examples of this include industrial deafness or asbestos poisoning which your employer could and should have addressed earlier.
Industrial deafness is not as common now as it used to be as safety procedures have improved. But for people who have spent many years in a noisy industrial setting they can have serious consequences.
You employer should take steps to stop this from happening. They can provide protective equipment in the form of ear defenders and they can modify machinery to ensure that it puts out less noise, thereby protecting the ears of their workers. If they fail to do this, that’s when litigation can become appropriate.
Asbestos poisoning is also a problem where we’re only just being able to assess the full implications. Tiny fibres used as insulation for buildings can get into your lungs causing all sorts of respiratory problems. In severe cases they can cause cancer.
Making a claim
These kinds of claims can be difficult because the problems do not arise suddenly. Instead they have been building for a prolonged period of time and it’s not always possible to know how or why they have been caused. However if you can trace this back to your employer, then there is a good chance that they should be paying you compensation as a result.
Many people are put off doing this, though, by the fear of how it may affect their employment prospects. However this is not something you should be worried about. It is illegal for anyone to take action against you because of a claim you have made against the company. If they were to do this then they would leave themselves open for further claims to be made against them in the court.
So the moral there is to always stand up for your rights and speak to a lawyer who will be able to help you get the compensation to which you’re entitled.
