Dangers of bladder cancer
If you have recently been diagnosed with bladder cancer then you will no doubt be trying to find all the information you can about your condition and the possibility for treatment.
You might even be looking for answers to help you understand how you could have developed the condition, and if there is anything you could have done to prevent it. Unfortunately, as with all cancers, sometimes the disease just affects people. There can be no rhyme or reason, and as hard as it can be to accept, you do sometimes just have to work on the basis that it is “one of those things”.
However, in other situations it may be that environmental factors could have caused, or at least attributed, the development of the disease. If this is the case then a specialist solicitor in Middleton St George may be able to help you make a claim for financial compensation.
How a specialist solicitor in Middleton St George can help
When you work in an environment where you are being constantly exposed to harmful substances, perhaps toxic chemicals or fibres, they enter your body. This may be through ingestion or inhalation depending on the situation and the substance in question.
Regardless of how they enter your body the substances will then pass in to your bloodstream, and in turn they will be filtered by the kidneys. Once this has happened they will be turned into waste, or urine, and end up in your bladder. Over time your bladder lining can become seriously irritated by the chemicals and toxins that it is being repeatedly exposed to, and this can cause abnormalities to develop, which in turn cause cancer.
If this is how your bladder cancer has developed then you could make a claim for compensation. Why not speak to an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor in Middleton St George today to find out if you have the basis of a claim?
