Accident claim in Llanddulas

0

Llanddulas used to be a centre for quarrying limestone, which may have caused some health problems to the quarry workers. Limestone does not have a high silica content, but there may be high concentrations of it in some strata. Shale and slate, on the other hand, have a higher concentration of silica, and these have been mined in different areas of north Wales in the past.

You may be considering making an accident claim in Llanddulas because you have developed a work-related illness such as silicosis. You may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation from your employer if this is the case.

Accident claim in Llanddulas

You can also make a claim in Llanddulas if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You generally have three years in which to make such a claim if the accident occurred anywhere in the UK. However, if you had an accident while at sea, in the air or at an airport, you have only two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.

Dangers of silica

Respirable crystalline silica (RCS) is found in rocks, stone, clay and so on. If you have been exposed to RCS over a period of time you may have contracted fibrosis, which is a hardening or scarring of the tissue in the lungs. This causes fairly severe respiratory problems, and if you had it you might not be able to walk very far without becoming breathless. Many people are housebound or even bed-bound because of it.

If you have been exposed to high concentrations of silica dust over a short period of time you may have developed acute silicosis, which can be fatal. Silica may also be linked to lung cancer, and if you have been diagnosed with silicosis then you are more susceptible to other health problems such as tuberculosis, kidney disease and arthritis.

People who are at risk from RCS are stone masons, quarry workers, those who work in foundries, in slate works, potteries and in the construction industry.
