    Lawyer in Widnes

    Widnes is an industrial town in the county of Cheshire in Northwest England. In 1947 the first chemical factory was established and the town continues to be a major manufacturer of chemicals. Each year Accident Advice Helpline sees a number of industrial accidents across the whole country including in Widnes.

    All employers have a responsibility to make sure their staff are safe at all times and that the appropriate measures have been taken to ensure there is no exposure of harmful chemicals, however unfortunately accidents can happen and the negligence of others can lead to serious consequences which may mean you need a lawyer in Widnes or to call us to claim compensation.

    The most common chemical manufacturing accidents we deal with are as follows:

    1. Exposure to chemicals
      Exposure to chemicals at work in some cases can be fatal. On the less severe end of the spectrum, dermatitis can occur as a side-effect, however a number of much more severe consequences can result from exposure to chemicals as well. If you feel you are suffering because of exposure to chemicals then you should seek medical advice immediately.
    2. Chemical burn injuries
      Each year we see hundreds of chemical claims which range from mild burns causing blistering of the skin to temporary or even permanent loss of sight.It is not just chemicals that are created in factories, these chemicals are also transported throughout the UK and are used in a vast range of places from oil refineries and industrial complexes to hairdressers and swimming pools, so whether you have been injured by a chemical in a factory or in your place of work such as a salon, then you could be awarded compensation.
