Accidents at work happen all too often, some industries being much worse than others. It does not matter what job you do, though — if you are inured at work through the negligence of your employer, you could be entitled to claim compensation from them.
The accident can be caused by any number of things — tripping over something, defective equipment or machinery, or a spillage that has not bee cleaned up. Unfortunately, so are the injuries, from minor cuts and bruises to major disabling injuries. Whichever your injury, may be you could be entitled to claim compensation, and using no win no fee Clippesby lawyers to do this would be the sensible thing to do.
The long-term conditions for which you might need the help of no win no fee Clippesby lawyers
It is not only one-off accidents at work that can cause you problems. There can be things that cause you much longer bad effects, that can take years to develop.
Asbestos-related diseases are a typical example. Although the substance was banned in 1999, claims are still being made for its effects every day, and it is thought that this will continue for some years yet.
Vibration white finger is another example. This can take ten years of using vibrating tools to develop, but once it has it is incurable.
There are a number of these industrial conditions that you can develop if your employer does not take the correct precautions, including such conditions as:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome;
- Industrial deafness;
- Repetitive strain injury;
- Back problems;
- Asbestosis; and
- Lung cancer.
These are just a few of the industrial conditions you can contract because of your job. Because some of them can take many years to manifest themselves, the normal three-year time limit is changed to three years from diagnosis, rather than from contraction.
