Injuries don’t always come from an accident. Industrial illnesses in West Lothian can include loss of hearing, vibration white finger or asbestos related illnesses. If you think your employer is to blame, then you may be able to claim compensation.
If you’ve suffered any hearing loss as a result of your job, you may suffer from permanent side effects. You may find that you regain the ability to hear clearly within a few days. In some cases, however, you could suffer hearing problems, or lose your ability to hear, on an on-going basis.
As this type of injury can affect your day-to-day life, you could be eligible to receive a substantial amount of compensation, if someone or something else caused the injury. If you can show that you weren’t at fault, there’s a good chance that you will be able to make a successful claim.
If your injury occurred a while ago but you’ve yet to make a claim, you may assume that it’s now too late to obtain compensation. However, if your injury happened within the last three years, you could still be eligible, and in the case of industrial illnesses in West Lothian you can call about a claim when your injury is diagnosed.
If you’re unsure whether or not making a claim for compensation will be worthwhile, you may want to find out how much your claim is worth. Generally, the amount of compensation you will receive will depend on what type of injuries you experienced and how they affect you. That’s why our 30-second test takes your injuries into account when determining how much compensation you could be awarded. If, for example, your injuries were temporary, you may expect to receive less compensation than someone who is suffering from on-going or life changing injuries. If you’d’ like to find out how much your claim is worth today, just visit Accident Advice Helpline’s website and take our 30-second test.
