The accident at the time, led to me being off-work and lying on a concrete floor for 6 weeks(the accepted treatment at the time). It is only in the last 8 years, that the problem developed into the spinal issues I now face. I was not wanting to be litigious, until the company brushed me off when the DWP followed up on my claim for Industrial Injuries Benefit
If that is truly the be-all-and-end-of it, then so be it, however, I find it hard to accept that an accident that does not represent itself until many years afterward, can be so stringently-time consequential. e.g.. someone has a car accident, they're fine for 5 years then drop down dead?
Is the standard of limitations the definitive legal response in this time, or is it a 'possibility' to follow up my claim under the legal system prevalent now?
Just one final attempt, Alex..
what about the precedents in the cases for Thalidomide and also Asbestosis? They were all outside a statute of limitations of 3 years?
Thank you very much Alex, I will probably try and pursue a claim, as I believe I have been sorely done to..however you have answered perfectly the problems I will face..many thanks
