Chemical and Bacterial Poisoning

We specialise in cases of chemical and bacterial poisoning at work. There are a number of regulations which can apply, for example the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations - please see our industrial disease pages. We believe these cases are now a lot easier to succeed in since our landmark breakthrough case Dugmore v Swansea NHS Trust (2003).

Chemical Poisoning

There are numerous chemicals present in the workplace in the UK which can give rise to Chemical Poisoning of greater or lesser severity. Various processes and materials yield poisons which have serious and lasting effects where exposure is suffered for any length of time.

Workers who have suffered poisoning from hazardous chemicals may be entitled to compensation, and Clear Answers' lawyers specialising in Chemical Poisoning can help you present your claim in the most effective manner. They are experts in the complex legal regulations which apply, such as the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH), and the Health and Safety Commission Approved Codes of Practice. Our lawyers can also give advice to people who live near, or work in contaminated waste disposal sites and landfills.

Please visit our section on information and advice for more details on making a personal injury compensation claim.

Strict time limits apply to making a claim for any type of personal injury, so please contact an experienced solicitor as soon as you think you may have a claim for compensation.
