If you have lived or worked with or near Asbestos and you have respiratory problems you may suffer from an asbestos related disease.
If it can be shown that asbestos exposure is responsible for you suffering from mesothelioma, Pleural Thickening, Asbestosis, Pleural Effusion or Asbestos related lung cancer you may be able to claim compensation. However simply because you have been exposed to asbestos does not necessarily mean that you will automatically suffer from an asbestos related disease. Many people who have been exposed to asbestos never develop an asbestos related disease.
In order to have the basis of a claim it will be necessary to show that someone (your employer or the person responsible for exposing you to asbestos) was negligent in exposing you to asbestos and failing to take sufficient reasonable precautions to prevent you from developing an asbestos related disease or condition.
If you consider that you have been injured as a result of a medical accident or negligent medical treatment then you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.
In order to have the basis of a claim it has to be proved that someone was to blame for the accident – ie that the medical practitioner has been negligent.
Whether the medical practitioner has been negligent will depend on whether the treatment you received was to a standard that could reasonably have been expected. The practitioner would have a defence to your claim if the treatment you received was in accordance with the views of a responsible body of medical opinion.
If You Have Been Injured At Work Then You May Be Able To Claim Compensation For Your Injuries.
A person usually only has 3 years from the date of their accident to issue Court Proceedings. Therefore if are not issued within 3 years of the date of the accident you would usually be unable to pursue your claim further as it would be out of time and statute barred. The Courts can however waive this 3-year time limit if it can be shown that there was a valid reason why you did not pursue the claim sooner.
If you have had an accident at work in the past 3 years you should take legal advice immediately to avoid your claim being out of time. If you think your claim may already be out of time you should still seek legal advice immediately to minimize the risk that the Courts would not be willing to waive the time limits and allow your claim to go ahead.
Thompson & Co. have many years of experience of recovering compensation for Vibration White Finger / Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome. We acted for 2 ex-mineworkers in test cases against the former British Coal Corporation which ended up in the Court of Appeal. This led to a compensation scheme being set up and we were one of only 5 firms of solicitors that made up the British Coal Vibration White Finger Steering Committee.
In order to succeed with a claim for Vibration White Finger against an employer it is usually necessary to prove that the employer was negligent or in breach of its statutory duties in exposing you to vibration and that this led to you suffering injury.
