Poisoning Claims

Poisoning can occur if the substance is ingested, either through the nose or mouth or can be absorbed through the skin in the form of a toxic chemical.

If you have suffered through either of these means, it can be very distressing for both you and your family. Ackroyd Legal will guide you in making your claim, so you can attain the compensation you deserve. 

Types of Poisoning

Poisoning can often occur when you are working with industrial materials or chemicals, even common substances like diesel can be harmful if contact is made. Although these claims might seem the most obvious to claim for, Ackroyd Legal addresses other poisoning claims also. 

You should claim for compensation if you have suffered from any of the following: 

  •       Chlorine Poisoning: This substance is used to purify swimming pools. However, in more concentrated forms can cause skin rashes and breathing difficulties. 
  •       Food Poisoning: This is more common but can be equally serious as contaminated food or water can result in sickness and diarrhoea. In severe cases, this has led to Chron’s disease or irritable bowel syndrome. 
  •       Pesticides, Insecticides and chemical fertilisers: Substances which are sprayed near you without the correct protective gear can lead to health complications. Furthermore, any fruit or vegetable that has not been properly washed can lead to the symptom of sickness and diarrhoea. 
  •       Household chemicals: These powerful chemicals can cause illness and heavy-duty cleaner like the chemicals used to descale a kettle can be especially harmful if ingested afterwards. 
  •       Carbon Monoxide: Faulty boilers and water heaters can cause toxic fumes to be produced, which cause severe injuries to the brain or even death. 
  •       Cosmetic treatment: Some fillers or treatments may lead to poisoning; silicone breast implants may rupture and cause infection if industrial instead of medical-grade silicone is used. 
  •       Drug poisoning: If a drug is administered to a wrong dosage or without considering a patient’s allergies, results can be severe. Poisoning can also occur involving volunteers in research establishments or at pharmaceutical companies.
