If you, or a loved one, inhales smoke or toxic fumes, you could become ill instantly. If the fumes are overwhelming, you may find it hard to breathe and you could lose consciousness relatively quickly. Although the fumes can have an immediate effect on you, the damage caused by toxic fumes may not always be so evident.
If, for example, you work in an environment which produces such fumes, you could breathe them for years before realising that they have made you ill. If the fumes are shown to be toxic, it’s possible that you could go on to develop respiratory problems or serious illnesses as a result of being exposed to them.
If someone has forced you to inhale such fumes or you’ve been injured in any other type of unexpected accidents in West Dunbartonshire, you may be able to make a claim for compensation if you become ill as a result.
Don’t miss out on compensation
As people often don’t realise that they have been hurt by the fumes until sometime later, they do worry that they have missed their chance to make a claim for West Dunbartonshire compensation and that they’ve left it too late. In actual fact, you may still have plenty of time in which to make your claim. At Accident Advice Helpline we regularly assist claimants who were injured some time ago so you may find it worthwhile to contact us in order to find out how long you’ve got left to make your claim.
