    Expert legal representation in Dartford


    Do you need expert legal representation in Dartford?

    All UK employers have legal duties to protect your health and safety while you are at work, but if they fail in this duty and you are injured because of their negligence, you may want to speak to expert legal representation in Dartford, about making a personal injury claim.

    Expert legal representation in Dartford is concerned by some of the long-term effects

    There are many accidents that could happen to you while you are at work, they can actually be quite dangerous places to be.  But there is more to the employers responsibilities than stopping the one off accidents such as tripping over something that should have been removed, or cutting yourself on glass that should not have been there, or maybe even breaking a limb falling down stairs that had no handrail.

    They also have a duty to protect you from the illnesses and conditions that are caused over time.  These could include:

    • Industrial Deafness, which is caused by constant exposure to loud noise.  They should do all they can to reduce the noise levels and if that is not enough they should provide ear protectors.
    • Carpal tunnel syndrome which is caused by constant twisting of or pressure on your wrist. A typical example of this would be the excessive use of a keyboard, but using a wrist rest while typing can prevent it.
    • Hand-arm vibration syndrome, which is caused by the constant use of vibrating tools over a long period of time.  Once the damage has been done to your hands, it is not curable but could have been prevented by following the vibrating tool health and safety guidelines.
    • Exposure to chemicals and dangerous substances in small amounts might not do you too much harm, but small amounts every day for years could cause untold damage to your health.

    The best way to make your industrial illness claim

    One of the rules for making a personal injury claim is that it must be made within 3 years of the accident happening.  Because many of these industrial illnesses can take up to 40 years to show themselves, in this case you have 3 years from the date of diagnosis to make your claim.  That is when you should contact expert legal representation in Dartford, at Accident Advice Helpline.
