    Injury solicitor in Nethy Bridge


    Finding an injury solicitor in Nethy Bridge can feel quite daunting and sometimes the only way to do it is to see how other people have done it before. Therefore we’ll start with this hypothetical case study which examines how one person might go about finding a personal injury solicitor.

    The name of our subject for this trial will be Owen – a 59 year old worker in a factory. He has a problem in that he’s been working with machinery for many years and is experiencing what he believes is industrial deafness.

    What are his chances?

    This is quite a difficult area of personal injury law. His employer is required to make certain provisions which should prevent him suffering any hearing loss in the event that he is working near loud machinery.

    Provisions might include limiting the amount of time he spends in the noisy environment or modifying the machinery to reduce the amount of noise it makes. In addition special equipment such as ear defenders should normally be provided to reduce any risk of damage to the hearing.

    Now, it is possible that it might be a straightforward case. If equipment has not been supplied then it could be linked to the hearing loss.

    This is more common in people who have been working in places for a long time. For example, equipment may now be provided but was not in the past and this is seen as contributing to the hearing damage.

    However it may also be more difficult to prove which makes his case more challenging.

    Getting advice

    In a case such as this where the outcome is hardly a foregone conclusion it pays for Owen to look around for advice as early as possible. It also pays for the advice to come free of charge if possible.

    One place he can get this is at Accident Advice Helpline. Our experts provide free consultations for anyone who wants them. We’ll help him look into his case and give him our honest opinion about what his chances are.

    This is useful even if it turns out that we don’t think he has a great case. In that case we’ll at least avoid a long and costly legal battle.
