Blaenavon is a town in the Welsh county of Gwent, in south east Wales with a significant industrial heritage. In fact, it is a designated World Heritage site, with the Big Pit being a tourist attraction. Blaenavon grew around the iron works, which, at the time of its foundation, used state-of-the-art technology. Of course, this did not mean that conditions were good for the people employed either in the iron works, or later in the colliery. The cottages built to house them were hardly luxurious either. You can still see these Stack Square dwellings and imagine what life must have been life in the bleak landscape surrounding Blaenavon.
An Accident Lawyer in Blaenavon? Not in the Industrial Revolution!
Although working conditions were appalling in the Industrial Revolution, the owners of the pits and iron works made their fortunes and generally treated their workforce badly. Even young children were employed for a meagre wage. Today, of course, if you have an accident at work, you may be able, with the help of an accident lawyer in Blaenavon or elsewhere, to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer, if you can prove that your employer’s negligence was responsible for your accident and injury.
Poor housing conditions can cause illnesses, especially respiratory ones such as asthma. The living conditions endured by workers in the Industrial Revolution in Blaenavon and elsewhere in the UK were often the cause of typhoid, cholera and other ailments. Then there was no recourse to an accident lawyer to sue the landlord (usually the employer) for damages.
Now, things are different and if you are a tenant and have repeatedly requested your landlord to carry out much-needed repairs, and they have not been done, you may need the services of an accident lawyer in Blaenavon to help you pursue a personal injury compensation claim against your landlord.
