Each victims will want meticulous yet comprehensive representation, be it surrounding the mechanics of the incident, the client’s injuries or future objectives. This could involve courts, court of protection, rehabilitative agents, and access to companies who provide financial advice, engineers and leading specialists of all medical fields.
Services – Industrial Deafness /Industrial Disease
These are areas which form part of the personal injury sector, but have become specialized niche sectors, mainly due to their complexity.
Health and Safety Regulation require your employer to extend a duty of care to you by protecting you from any health risks in the workplace. Minimising risks include, training ad awareness of employees, prevent continuous and extended exposure by changing employee environments and/or the provisions of protective equipment.
Industrial Deafness covers all employed environments where you have been exposed to high levels of noise for a substantial period to damage you hearing and not being provided with either the deserved protection or other mandatory health and safety standards. The subheading here indicates that this area has largely developed from the industrial sector of factory, mills and docks, where excessive levels of noise were common. Examples included the building, cotton industry, textile industry and shipbuilding.
Due to de-industrialization of manufacturing industries, these factories have largely disappeared from the United Kingdom. However cases still exist. Limitation can be extended on these cases, as many people are unaware of the relation between their hearing loss and past exposure to high levels of noise at work.
Any industry which used loud machinery was also included, in the form of chainsaws, grinders and pneumatic drills, and therefore laborers or workers in highway or other types of work are also included in this sector.
Other forms of claims related to the industrial sector are also handled by our firm. The types of diseases can include, vibration white finger, mesothelioma, asbestosis, carpel tunnel syndrome, repetitive strain injury, osteoarthritis, chemical poisoning and dust/fume exposure, occupational asthma and development of skin exposure like contact dermatitis.

The area also includes health care workers, rehabilitative treatment providers like physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and dentists, optometrists and opticians.

Consequently there has been a considered overhaul in the United Kingdom, but again bringing a substantial change to the sector with unfamiliar rules or the application of those rules, the outcome which can have very serious implication for the client.
