A UK charity has reported a rise in type-2 diabetes

The charity Diabetes UK has reported a rise in type-2 diabetes of nearly 130,000 in the past year alone. The national figure for type-2 diabetes sufferers now stands at 2.9million.

Unlike type-1 diabetes, which is an autoimmune disease causing the destruction of insulin-producing cells and which affects only 10% of all sufferers, type-2 diabetes is linked to lifestyle.

Diabetes UK points out in the report that individuals who are overweight are more likely to develop the condition and “Losing 10% of your weight reduces your chances of developing type-2 diabetes by 50%”.

Serious burns injuries following explosive accident at work

Our client in this claim for work accident compensation was injured when equipment on which he was working, suddenly exploded, covering him with the burning contents and steam.

With no training provided in how to carry out this particular task, he was asked to assist in what was an extremely dangerous task, the risk compounded by the fact that he was not provided with any protective clothing.

Our specialist work accident compensation lawyers were able to secure substantial compensation for his very serious burn injuries, which have proved to be life changing for our client.

Rear car passenger receives road accident compensation

When our client in this road accident compensation claim was injured, she was only a minor. As a rear seat passenger, she had been put in the position of travelling with too many passengers for the car and forced to share a seatbelt. Had she not been using any seatbelt at all, her injuries could have been even worse. In spite of that, she still suffered serious and life-changing injuries.

Our specialist road traffic accident lawyers were able to secure substantial road accident compensation for our client’s injuries, though this will never fully compensate her for having the real possibility of a lucrative and high-profile career cruelly crushed.
