Industry Related Injury Claims
We have acted for clients who have worked in heavy industries. This includes demolition, engineering, coal-mining, ship building, construction and other heavy industries. These industries (especially in the past) can be associated with a range of industrial diseases and illnesses that could have been caused by negligence by an employer or unsafe working environments or work practices. These claims include Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome or ‘Vibration White Finger’ a disease that is caused by operating vibrating machinery and diseases and illnesses caused by negligent exposure to Asbestos. Asbestos claims include Mesothelioma, Asbestosis, Pleural Thickening, Pleural Effusion, Pleural Plaque and Lung Cancers that are caused by inhaling Asbestos fibres in the environment. As well as these claims, we can also support you in injuries sustained in the workplace (which is applicable to the industrial sector.) Our experienced team of solicitors can support you during your claims from soft tissue injuries or fractures to spinal and brain injuries and amputations. We can also support a claim should a workplace accident leads to a death. We will help you to prove that your employer or someone else was to blame for your accident at work.
Personal Injury Claims Sunderland
Similarly to industrial accident claims in the workplace, we can also support you in making a claim for a personal injury in the workplace in any sector. Whether you have an injury such as a fracture or serious life changing injuries, we will endeavour to support you in your claim and offer you compassionate advice, support and representation. We also offer representation for other workplace accidents such as slips, trips and falls. We also represent our clients in private and public areas which means that you can make a claim against the landowner for accidents in the street for example (which would usually be against the local council.) As with other claims, you will need to prove that the person or body responsible for the area where your accident occurred was the individual or body was negligent and that this negligence caused your injuries. For private property (under the Occupier’s Liability Act 1957) an occupier must take reasonable care to ensure that visitors to his premises are safe while they are on the premises. We can support you during a road traffic accident and this will include proving that someone was to blame for your accident. This includes another individual on the road, another driver or the driver where you are the passenger of said driver.
Medical & Dental Negligence Claims Sunderland
Our highly experienced team of solicitors in Sunderland are medical negligence solicitors, dealing with a range of compensation claims arising out of medical negligence from a medical practitioner or body. This includes injuries after surgery such as an injury to the bladder or bowel, a failure to diagnose an illness or injury, dental negligence and delays in the diagnosis and therefore organisation for treatment of cancer. For a medical negligence claim, the liability of your claim depends on whether you received treatment that could have reasonably been expected. If this treatment is in line with the views of a respectable body of medical opinion then this would form the practitioner’s defence. You will also have to prove that you would not have sustained the injuries caused without the negligence of the medical practitioner. Dental negligence includes substandard treatment including incorrect fitting of implants, failed dental implants, nerve damage caused by negligence, extracting teeth before exploring other options such as root canal treatment and the incorrect removal of a healthy teeth due to an error or misdiagnosis. You can also make a dental negligence claim for a delay in diagnosis and therefore treatment and poor long term care over a long period of time. We are highly experienced in representing our clients for medical and dental negligence claims and will support and represent you during your claim.
