Have you been diagnosed with Emphysema?
We can help.
Accident Advice Helpline is one of the UK’s leading personal injury law firms, and we have many years of experience helping people make compensation claims for the onset of illnesses caused by negligence.
Emphysema occurs when dust settles in the lining of the lungs, causing difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest and many other unpleasant symptoms. While Emphysema can be caused by smoking, it can also be the cause that it develops as a result of the negligence of a co-worker or employer. If you’ve spent many years working in a dusty environment without adequate protection, you could be at risk of developing this lung condition.
When working around dust in commercial or industrial settings, you should be provided with this protection, and your employer is responsible for making sure everyone has frequent breaks and protection from dust in the workplace. If they fail to do this, you could be able to make a case for negligence and seek compensation.
If you’ve had to take time off work to treat your Emphysema, you may be dealing with a loss of income through no fault of your own. This can make things difficult financially during an already distressing time, and at Accident Advice Helpline, we don’t believe legal fees should compound this stress.
We undertake all cases on a no win, no fee* basis, so there is nothing payable upfront to get started. All you need to do is get in touch, get a quote, and provide our solicitors in Leyton with as much information as possible to support that your employer’s negligence has lead to the onset of your industrial illness.
