Good afternoon,

Please ask a specific question and I will gladly answer it for you. I do not mean to sound callous, but you have only made a statement, without asking anything.

Hi Theo

Unfortunately you will not be able to claim. Workers who are affected by occupational injuries and diseases are entitled to compensation. This diseases will have to be work related like someone who gets cancer from working with radiation etc.

I do not know if there is something else that I can assist you with or if you are satisfied with my answer. If you need further help, please post another question.

I know it will take an extra minute of your time to rate my service, but if you do not rate it, I do not get paid by the website so I would really appreciate it if you would be so kind as to rate my service positively. Feel free to ask further question here on this topic at no extra cost if you need more information. You can still ask a related question even after you have rated my service.

Regards

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
