Milford Haven is based in Pembrokeshire, Wales. It was historically known as a safe port. The region was founded in the 1700s, and it is home to several notable artists and military figures.
Are you a construction worker who has recently found out that he or she has developed asbestosis? Asbestosis is a terrible industrial disease that is developed due to exposure to debris and asbestos. A large number of industrial workers develop this disease and discover that they are suffering because of it, after years of exposure to the material.
A disease like asbestosis can impact your life in several ways, and it puts you at high risk of developing lung cancer, too. If this is the scenario you are in, then you should definitely be compensated.
Who should you file an accident compensation claim in Milford Haven, against?
If you feel that you have developed asbestosis due to a lack of protective gear and safety measures or precautions, by your employers, you should file an accident compensation claim in Milford Haven, against them.
However, if it is found that your employers provided you with the necessary tools, instructions, protective gear and measures and you failed to take advantage of these, this will impact the sum of money that you might win in compensation, negatively.
So the first thing that you need to do is to collect evidence that proves your claim.
What do you need to do after finding out that you have developed asbestosis?
The first thing that anyone should do is to refer to a medical professional, who can testify had it not been for the lack of protective gear or measures, you would not have developed asbestosis. The testimony of your doctor/medical professional will act as evidence.
Remember, that when filing an accident compensation claim in Milford you need to ascertain that:
- You were not at fault for the development of the disease
- Your employer is liable for the development of the disease
- You were not suffering from a pre-existing medical disease, condition and/or injury
