Pursing a Claim following a Work Accident in Burnley
Accident at work claims vary in severity, from minor injuries to life long and terminal illness. The damage or injury sustained may not always be immediately apparent. Industrial disease cases, for example mesothelioma, can often go decades before victims exhibit any obvious symptoms.
Regardless of your circumstances, whether you have suffered a fall at work or been exposed to harmful substances whilst on an industrial site, seeking expert legal advice at the earliest opportunity is essential in pursuing a successful personal injury claim. As with all aspects of personal injury law, accident at work claims are subject to strict statutory time limits as the claim must be made within three years of diagnosis or knowledge of injury. Failure to comply with this will severely restrict the possibility of securing a successful outcome for you and your family.
