Chemical injuries are particularly nasty, so there is every reason why you may want to know about claiming compensation for any accident you have had. If you work in the beauty industry, you’re a cleaner or industrial worker, and you have come to harm, you will need to know how to claim for a chemical injury.
How to claim for a chemical injury with Accident Advice Helpline
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are well aware of how traumatic you may have found your accident and the resulting injuries, so when you call us you will speak to one of our professional personal advisers who will be sympathetic and empathetic. Take your time, and work through your answers as our adviser asks you questions about your accident.
There is a range of information we will need in order to further your claim. This will include the following:
- The date and time of your accident
- What you were doing and was anyone else involved
- Were there other witnesses?
- The type of chemical involved
- Was training required to use the chemicals, and had you therefore been provided with appropriate training and equipment?
We’ll then want to know details about your treatment. You can tell us about being treated at the scene, and then further treatment at the hospital, or at a specialist unit. Remember to tell us about any further outpatient treatment, physiotherapy, or continuing treatment you may be having.
In addition to this we will be interested in the long-term effects of the chemical injury on your life. Do you have scarring for example, has the injury impeded your movement, or has there been any psychological impact?
Don’t worry that your case is not ‘severe’ enough. We work across the full gamut of injuries, and we can win compensation for the majority of cases. If you have any doubts, just answer our questions as honestly as possible and we’ll let you know. We’ll never waste your time.
