Chemical Poisoning and Dangerous Substances Claims

Depending on the nature of your occupation, you may regularly work with hazardous substances that could potentially be dangerous or lead to chemical poisoning if handled incorrectly.

You could be left exposed to dangerous chemicals if you are asked to handle these substances without being provided with the necessary protective equipment, or given the correct training on how to safely handle the substances by your employer.

If you are involved in an accident at work that leaves you exposed to harmful chemicals you may be entitled to claim compensation. Freeclaim Solicitors have specialist solicitors who can advise you on claiming compensation after suffering injuries or illness due to dangerous substances and chemical poisoning.
