Expert assistance from Accident Advice Helpline
At Accident Advice Helpline, we frequently help people to make accident at work claims in West Bromwich, and indeed, a lot of places throughout the United Kingdom. We’ve been performing this service since 2000, so we’ve gained considerable knowledge and experience in the field.
Every case is different, and while there are very few situations we haven’t encountered, we’re always aware that no two cases are the same. However, there are some basic facts about the process that are common to all.
Firstly, to be eligible to claim, you must have been in an accident in which you suffered personal injury, and this accident must have been someone else’s fault.
Secondly, in most cases, there is a deadline for making claims. This deadline is three years from the date of the incident that caused the injury or injuries. There is an exception to this rule, which we will tell you about later.
Now let us tell you about the exception to the usual three-year time limit for making claims. This deadline can be extended in cases of industrial disease.
Such cases are special, in that they relate to illnesses that people suffer from as a direct result of their working conditions. Examples include mesothelioma (a cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos), industrial deafness, and some kinds of dermatitis. Their onset may occur many years after working in an unsafe environment.
Whether you’re suffering because you had an accident at work, or because of your working conditions several decades ago, give Accident Advice Helpline a call now.
