Have you ended up with bladder cancer? Did you work in industrial environments and use chemicals? If so, solicitors in Bridgwater could help you, because you may be suffering from an industrial disease.
What is an industrial disease?
An industrial disease is any condition that has arisen through working under unsafe conditions, such as with heavy machinery – and with chemicals.
People who have worked in industries making products such as tyres, chemicals and other substances may have been exposed to dangerous chemicals. These are a risk factor in the development of bladder cancer.
If you have bladder cancer as a result of work, it can be debilitating. You may not be able to work again, and you could have trouble if your income drops. You may already be dealing with expenses from hiring a home help, and taking buses and taxis to hospital.
The anxiety and stress is also holding you back from recovering. Financial worries don’t just go away by themselves – but you can do something to make this happen by getting in touch with solicitors in Bridgwater now!

Gather your evidence
Normally, claims have to be made within three years of the date of an injury’s occurrence. The trouble with industrial disease is that the date of onset is impossible to determine, but this is actually a good thing when it comes to claiming, because it means that the time limit is extended.
However, you should still get started as soon as possible, and you will need evidence to help solicitors in Bridgwater to process your claim. This evidence should include medical records, receipts for expenditure associated with your claim, and payslips and other records to demonstrate loss of income.
You may need an additional medical assessment
Claims can proceed with an additional medical assessment. We realise that you have probably received a lot of medical treatment, and that another session will cause you some anxiety. But if it weren’t needed, we wouldn’t ask.
As for a court appearance, however, this is unlikely. Solicitors in Bridgwater should be able to process your claim entirely by phone, saving you from further stress and worry. So why not call us today and get started with your claim?
