Have you been diagnosed with a hernia?
If you have been diagnosed with a hernia you will be aware that this is a potentially painful, and occasionally dangerous, condition. If your hernia was caused as a result of an accident which was not your fault, and which occurred within the last three years, then an Accident Advice Helpline expert solicitor in Modbury may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Types of hernia
There are actually two distinct types of hernia that people can suffer from:
- External, where the affected organ (often the intestine) can be seen protruding through abdominal muscle.
- Internal, where the affected organ protrudes through a hole in muscle or membrane into another section of the body and is therefore not visible without the help of scans.
No matter what type of hernia you have, or how severe it is, a solicitor in Modbury can help you make a claim if you think your hernia was caused as a result of the actions of another person.
How an expert solicitor in Modbury can help
An expert solicitor in Modbury can help you determine who is responsible for your accident, and therefore your injury. They will then make a claim on your behalf against this person.
The most common cause for hernia compensation claims is following accidents in the work place. Many of our clients have been injured as a result of manual lifting accidents, which have resulted in both internal and external hernias developing.
As well as groin based hernias, which remain the most common for our solicitor in Modbury to deal with, we can also assist with herniated or slipped discs, caused as a result of lifting accidents.
In such situations your solicitor in Modbury will help you establish how the accident occurred. If it transpires that your employer did not provide you with the necessary training to be able to complete a manual handling task safely, then they will be regarded as being at fault. This also includes situations where inappropriate equipment has been provided, or when equipment has not been suitably maintained.
Hernias can also be caused as a result of medical or clinical negligence. Although these cases can often be more complicated to deal with, here at Accident Advice Helpline we have a team of in house experts who can help with just such cases. This means that you do not need to worry as we can deal with everything on your behalf.
No win, no fee*
Another reason not to worry when you work with Accident Advice Helpline is that all of our solicitors work on a strict no win, no fee* basis. This means that even if your case is not a success, you will not have to pay us a single penny in legal fees. Of course, our expert solicitor in Modbury will do all they can to ensure that you do get the compensation you deserve.
