Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Cumbria claim after being exposed to radiation at work?
If you’re exposed to a large amount of radiation over a short amount of time, there is a chance that you could develop a condition known as acute radiation syndrome. Also known as radiation poisoning, this illness can cause numerous symptoms and occurs because of radiation damaging the cells inside your body.
Depending on the amount of radiation you’ve been exposed to, the symptoms could vary dramatically. In cases of chronic radiation syndrome, symptoms may not even be apparent until months or years after the initial exposure.
Symptoms can affect the number of white blood cells in your blood and, therefore, your ability to fight off infections. You may also experience nausea or other gastrointestinal symptoms, as well as dizziness and headaches. Severe acute radiation syndrome does cause fatalities so it’s important to access medical help as soon as possible if you suspect that you have been exposed to the toxin.
If you have suffered an illness due to being exposed to a chemical, such as radiation, it may be possible for you to obtain compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered. Often, people are exposed to these types of toxins at work so you may need to make your ‘no win, no fee’ Cumbria compensation claim against your employer in order to obtain the compensation you deserve.
If an employer has exposed employees to these types of chemicals, they could face multiple ‘no win, no fee’ Cumbria compensation claims. Even if the employer isn’t aware that the toxin is dangerous as the time it’s used, employees could go on to make future ‘no win, no fee’ Cumbria compensation claims if it later becomes apparent that they have been harmed due to the exposure.
