Radiation sickness claims can be split into two different categories; ionising and non-ionising radiation. Non-ionising radiation is considered the least dangerous of the two as it has far lower levels of energy which can impact the human body. By comparison, ionising radiation is far more active and extremely dangerous. Even low-levels of exposure can be extremely harmful to the individual and can lead to a wide range of illnesses and symptoms.
Just some of the life-changing symptoms that radiation sickness can cause include:
- Tissue Damage.
- Nausea and Vomiting.
- Bleeding and Skin Conditions.
- Long-Term DNA Damage and Cell Mutations.
- Hair and Tooth Loss.
- Bleeding and Haemorrhaging.
- Can Lead to Cancer.
There are small amounts of radiation in a wide range of industries. However, some industries rely on using larger amounts of radiation on a regular basis. For example, healthcare workers who spend their time near X-Ray machines or energy-plant workers are some of the most at-risk. In some cases, even if you don’t work in an area with high radiation, but leave nearby, you could have been exposed to harmful levels.
If your employer or any other business has been negligent in either their treatment or radioactive waste or when using radiation-based equipment, then you could be entitled to compensation. If you operate radioactive machines on a regular basis, then these pieces of technology must be maintained and checked to industry standards. In many cases, it is also up to your employer to provide you with adequate training as well as comprehensive protective gear including:
- Face Masks.
- Protective Overalls.
If you’ve operated radioactive machinery without proper training, or haven’t been provided with the adequate protective gear, then your employers may have been negligent towards you.
