Accidents at work – claim for compensation
If you have been injured in an accident at work which you think might have been the fault of your employer, then speak to an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor today to find out more.
Our team of in house solicitors in Whitley Bay can help you make a claim for compensation if you have:
- Been injured in an accident
- Which was not your fault
- In the last three years
There are even some instances in which our solicitors in Whitley Bay may be able to help you make a claim for compensation if it is more than three years since your injury took place, for example, if you have been diagnosed with an industrial disease.
Extending time limits – industrial disease
When it comes to claiming compensation for an industrial disease it can often be difficult, if not impossible, to accurately determine when the initial exposure took place. If you have developed a condition such as asthma or a lung cancer, then you will probably not be aware of the condition until you have started to suffer symptoms.
Even once symptoms start many people tell our solicitors in Whitley Bay that they just put it down to a cold, or bug that is currently doing the rounds. It may be a number of weeks, or even months, before you receive an accurate diagnosis of the condition; however, it could have been years since you were first exposed to the chemicals or substances which have caused the condition.
In such cases our solicitors in Whitley Bay will be able to help you make a claim for compensation if it is no more than three years since you were diagnosed with the condition. To find out more why not contact Accident Advice Helpline today and we will be happy to discuss your case in more detail with you.
