Many people will be familiar with the idea of claiming compensation for an accident, but what people might not realise is that you can also claim for long standing conditions. To show you how, here’s the process you should follow to find solicitors in Tutbury who can help you out.
Long term injuries
Examples of those injuries which are caused by long term exposure to poor conditions are industrial deafness which is often experienced by factory workers who have been in the same place for a number of years or asbestos poisoning which is a common complaint among office workers whose offices have been insulated with the stuff.
Both these tend to be issues which happen at work and so fall under the auspices of employment law. According to these laws, all employers are required to take all reasonable measures to prevent any injuries happening to their workers. It is of course not possible to be 100% safe at all times, but what they can do is address any obvious problems.
For example, they could guard against industrial deafness by providingng ear defenders and other protective equipment. They might also add mufflers to the machinery or limit the amount of time workers spent in that noisy environment. If, for any reason they do not take these simple measures then you may well have good cause to make a complaint.
Finding solicitors in Tutbury
Because these issues are in the workplace more often than not it helps if you can find solicitors in Tutbury who work in employment law, but going a little bit beyond that you could use someone who has specific experience of working on these long term conditions. They will know some of the obvious signs you should be looking for and can point you in the right direction in terms of what information you should find and how you can improve your chances.
They will also be able to assess the amount of compensation you should be aiming for and can convert this into a rough estimate which allows you to set expectations. Although this is never anything more than a rough guide it is something which allows you to set goals and make decisions.
Paying for your claim
These long term conditions are more likely to be a little more complicated than other common one-off injuries, but don’t worry about that. True, the legal fees for a longer case could be steeper in the long run, but if you work with us you’ll have the benefit of ‘no win, no fee’ which reduces the risk of making a claim and allows you to proceed without worrying about what the future might bring.
