Bladder cancer is a reasonably common form of cancer and generally develops in people aged between 50 and 70, but it can be encountered at any age. Research has linked the exposure of industrial chemicals with the development of bladder cancer. Moreover, exposure to carcinogenic chemicals can happen more frequently than one might think. As with many industrial diseases, the symptoms of bladder cancer can take place as many as twenty-five years after the initial exposure.
Bladder cancer is most frequently caused by chemicals coming into contact with the bloodstream through inhalation or ingestion. It can also happen as a result of chemicals coming into contact with the skin.
This is a non-exhaustive list of substances and chemicals which are known to increase the risk of bladder cancer:
- Coal Tar
- Diesel fumes
There are various industries in which individuals are more susceptible to being exposed to these hazardous chemicals, including:
- Leather industry
- Rubber workers
- Printing industry
- Jobs that involve dyeing textiles
- Chemical industry
- Gas industry
- Road workers
- Painful burning sensation when urinating
- Finding blood in urine
- Pain in the surrounding areas of the body
- Needing the toilet regularly
You should seek medical advice from your GP if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms.
How much compensation could I receive?
Every case is unique and largely dependent on the extent of the symptoms and period of suffering experienced by the claimant. Compensation generally falls in the range of £17,000 to £100,000 and is dictated by the severity of the circumstances.
A successful claim may also encompass loss of earnings. In such a case you might also be entitled to recover the expenses associated with healthcare and assistance, as well as medical treatment costs.
