    Industrial accidents in North Tyneside

    Award-winning beaches, stunning countryside and a host of tourist attractions make North Tyneside a popular destination for tourists and residents alike. The region has a proud history of shipbuilding and coal mining which has left an industrial legacy and a sea-faring tradition attracting people from around the region to live and work.

    Unsurprisingly then when it comes to personal injury claims reported in North Tyneside, most are related to industrial accidents.

    Types of industrial accidents and illnesses

    The types of aliments that fall into this particular category are varied. They include relatively minor and treatable illnesses and injuries like:

    • Carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Repetitive strain injuries
    • Vibration white finger
    • Back injuries
    • Occupational stress
    • Occupational asthma
    • Industrial dermatitis

    Unfortunately, this category also extends to more debilitating and in some cases fatal conditions such as:

    • Asbestosis
    • Occupational hearing damage and industrial deafness
    • Loss of a limb
    • Occupational cancers

    If you have suffered from any of the conditions mentioned or another work related injury or illness you may be entitled to compensation and should consider filling a claim through an injury solicitor in North Tyneside or other legal professional.

    Why you should seek compensation

    The medication and treatment required for industrial injuries and illnesses can be costly. Also such conditions may require long periods where the victim is unable to work and in the worst cases may result in them having to stop work altogether. The financial implications can therefore be severe. If possible, victims should seek compensation to help them cope.

    Some very unfortunate cases, like asbestosis and occupational cancers, may result in death, leaving the victim’s family to suffer emotional and financially.

    In such cases it is very important that those affected receive some form of financial compensation to help them deal with the dreadful consequences.

    Filing for compensation

    Industrial injuries and illnesses are also some of the most complicated claims and so if you are considering claiming you really should enlist professional, legal help to give your claim the best possible chance of success.

    You can of course appoint a local injury solicitor in North Tyneside, if this is where you live or where the incident in question took place. However, you can also use a national law firm like Accident Advice Helpline to help you too.
