How can Accident Advice Helpline help me locate an injury claims solicitor in Avebury?
Illnesses or diseases contracted through work is a specialist area of personal injury law but with one of the UK’s leading law firms, Accident Advice Helpline, this is not an issue: with a brilliant expert injury claims solicitor in Avebury you can be confident your compensation claim for industrial disease or illness is in safe hands.
Why make a claim?
It has now been recognised by the British Government that there are some people today who are suffering ill health as a direct result of the work they did or the working environment which they frequented on a daily basis.
In some cases, many decades ago, employers were aware that some the chemicals and products their employees were using could cause health problems but, instead of warning their workers or providing them with safety equipment, many employers chose to do nothing.
As a result, many years later – decades in some cases – these people are now suffering ill-health; sadly, in some cases these illnesses will prove fatal (if not already).
How our expert injury solicitors can help you?
Claiming compensation is important; not only are you entitled to claim but the financial award will help you to maintain your lifestyle for as long as possible; by this we mean, being able to make adaptations to your home or to your car, as well as possibly buying in personal care or other aspects to make your life as comfortable as possible.
What kind of industrial diseases or illness are ‘covered’ in compensation claim cases?
There are many diseases and illnesses that the UK Government has on a list of ‘industrial diseases’ that many people are now making eligible compensation claims but examples that our injury solicitors have worked on include:
- Industrial deafness
- White finger, caused by the use of prolonged vibrating equipment
- Chemical poisoning
- Asbestos related illnesses such as pleural thickening, asbestosis and mesothelioma
Looking for an injury claims solicitor in Avebury?
With usual compensation claims, there is a three-year deadline that starts from the date the accident happened but with compensation cases relating to industrial diseases and illnesses, the three-year deadline begins from the moment you were either told you had a disease linked to your work or, as the law states, three years from the date it could be reasonably assumed you should have known you had an industrial disease.
Getting the help of one of our expert injury solicitors is simple and straightforward – all you need to do is call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and your compensation case could be in full swing before you know it!
