    Accident claim in Letchworth Garden City


    You may live in Letchworth Garden City you are probably proud of the fact that Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation is working with Chinese developers to create a low-carbon environment for a new garden city in Chengdu in central China. Letchworth Garden City was the idea of the social reformer, Ebenezer Howard who dreamed of a town where the residents could enjoy shared green spaces along with all the amenities associated with a town. His idea worked and the model for such a garden city spread around the world.

    However, even in such a pleasant environment accidents happen as do illnesses for which other people are to blame. If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault in the last three years, then you may be able to make an accident claim in Letchworth Garden City.

    Accident claim in Letchworth Garden City

    If you have been diagnosed with an illness in the last three years, which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence, then you may also be entitled to make an accident claim in Letchworth Garden City-based, or one anywhere else in the country, for that matter. Such an illness could be food poisoning because restaurant staff had not cooked your meat or fish at the correct temperature, or had not thoroughly washed salad greens. It could be that you have a work-related illness or an occupational disease which you can prove was the result of your employer’s negligence.

    Industrial lung disease

    People who have worked in a dusty environment may be adversely affected by the particles in the air they breathe. In the past workers were exposed to asbestos, and it was used as insulating material in a number of public buildings. Unfortunately there is generally a gap between the exposure to asbestos and the onset of a lung disease such as asbestosis. If you were working with coal dust, then you could expect a gap of ten to fifteen years before you had symptoms of emphysema or one of the other pneumoconiosis diseases. This group of diseases is a prescribed industrial disease, so if you can prove that you once worked in a job where you were exposed to asbestos particles, or any other dusty environment (there is one respiratory disease called Farmer’s Lung, which workers in granaries may contract), you can make an injury claim in Letchworth Garden City.
