Each year, over 300,000 people across the UK will be diagnosed with cancer.
This debilitating disease can occur for a number of reasons, but there are a number of “occupational” cancers that can arise because of poor working conditions. If you’ve been exposed to toxic chemicals or harmful materials in the workplace and believe them to be responsible for your cancer diagnosis, contact the Accident Advice Helpline’s no win no fee Burford lawyers for assistance.
How our No win No fee Burford team can help
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer within the past three years, we can help you follow through on your right to seek compensation.
An employer has a legal obligation to ensure that all employees are safe and protected in the workplace and, if handling harmful substances, are equipped to do so with the proper safety gear and protective clothing. To strengthen the chances of a successful claim, you should be able to prove that you were exposed to carcinogenic substances in the workplace either without your knowledge or without the right safety gear. These substances include asbestos, pesticides and arsenic and can be found in a wide number of workplaces throughout the UK.
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, this can mean having to take a sabbatical or in some cases opting not to return to work at all while you undergo treatment. This can have a significant effect on your household income, making it difficult for both you and your loved ones to afford simple everyday bills.
If this is the case, you shouldn’t just be left to deal with things on your own. Financial compensation can help cover unexpected costs and supplement lost income, so you’re not dealing with financial pressure on top of illness. To make seeking compensation affordable, our no win no fee Burford team works on a conditional fee agreement, meaning that if we don’t win your case, you don’t have to pay at all. This means that no matter your financial circumstances, you are able to afford the help of the UK’s leading personal injury lawyers and reflects our confidence in our ability to successfully handle your occupational cancer claim.
