Injury claim solicitor in Helmsdale


Perhaps you have heard of Helmsdale (Scotland) because of the salmon, sea trout and grilse fishing that you can do on the River Helmsdale. There has been fishing in this area for centuries. You may also live and work in Helmsdale, in which case, you may be looking for an injury solicitor because of an accident which you have been injured in, but which was the fault of someone else.

You usually have three years from the date of an accident in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, if your accident occurred at sea, in the air or at an airport, you only have two years in which to file a claim. If you are in doubt about how long you have in which to claim, you can contact an injury solicitor in Helmsdale or elsewhere. You can also call us at Accident Advice Helpline for this and other information about your claim.

Although we do not have an injury claim solicitor in Helmsdale we can still represent you and your claim. This is because we are a national firm that works across the whole of the UK. So if you need an injury claim solicitor in Helmsdale look no further than our expert service.

Another reason why you might be searching for an injury solicitor expert, for example, is if you have, or have had, an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. Perhaps you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease and you can prove this was caused by negligence on the part of your employer. You have three years in which to file a claim such as this.

Health problems associated with the fishing industry

If you work in the food production and processing industry, particularly the fish and seafood sector, there are several health hazards which you may be exposed to. For example, if you have not been properly trained in how to lift heavy objects safely (such as large boxes of fish and seafood), there is a risk of you having musculoskeletal problems. You could also develop work-related upper limb disorders (WRULD) if you repeat the same physical action throughout your working day. For example if you are boning, cutting and cleaning fish, you may develop such a disorder.

If you work in a noisy environment, you may be at risk of losing your sense of hearing, either totally or partially after long exposure to high levels of noise. Another illness you might develop is general ill health because you have been working in reduced temperatures over a long period of time.

One of the main causes for concern is occupational asthma which can develop because of the use of aerosol proteins in fish processing. Another major concern is the risk of developing cancer from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) used in the smoking of fish.
