Do you have radiation sickness? – injury solicitors in Dulas
There are certain jobs which expose you to radiation, and this should be carefully monitored to ensure that you do not contract radiation sickness. Radiation sickness can cause a host of symptoms and problems, which can be fatal if left unchecked. Your employer should be doing everything they can to protect you against radiation sickness, and if you do contract the illness as a result of your employer’s negligence you can claim compensation from them. But before you consider this, you should work out whether you have radiation sickness, and what to do about it.
Know the causes
Radiation sickness is caused by ionizing radiation, which comes from x-rays, gamma rays and particle bombardment. If you work in a job which deals with any of these processes then you are at risk of radiation sickness.
Know how you get radiation sickness
A low dose of radiation can show no symptoms but increase your risk of cancer in the future. A very high dose will be fatal in a short amount of time. One high dose of radiation can be just as fatal as smaller doses if you are exposed over a period of time.
Know the symptoms
Radiation sickness has a range of symptoms which, separately, can point to a number of other illnesses. Look out for a combination of the following symptoms.
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of appetite
- Difficulty breathing
- Skin damage such as rashes, reddening and itching
In many types of radiation sickness, symptoms will disappear for a week or so after their initial onset, only to come back stronger than before soon after a period of wellness. If you do feel that you are suffering radiation sickness and have any combination of these symptoms you should see a doctor as soon as possible.
