    Accident Lawyer in Merthyr Tydfil

    Merthyr Tydfil was a sleepy place until the Industrial Revolution began. Although there is evidence of people being in the area which is now Merthyr Tydfil since prehistoric times, no one lived in it permanently until the Middle Ages. Even as late as 1745 it was recorded as being populated predominantly by shepherds. Farming was the only industry and produce and animals were sold at various markets and fairs in the surrounding area. The Crawshay family with their ironworks at Cyfarthfa and their mansion house at Cyfarthfa Park were extremely influential in the area. The house at Cyfarthfa Park is now open to the public, but this was how the wealthy lived; the housing rented to workers was at the bottom end of the scale. In 1859 Thomas Carlyle, the Scottish philosopher (1795 – 1881) was in Merthyr Tydfil which he described as being a “vision of Hell” populated by “miserable-looking sons of Adam … broiling, all in sweat and dirt, amid their furnaces, pits, and rolling mills.”

    Seeking an accident lawyer in Merthyr Tydfil?

    Both living and working conditions were awful in those days and workers couldn’t ask an accident lawyer in Merthyr Tydfil to represent them if they were made ill because of their working conditions. Neither could they make injury claims for injuries sustained in accident at work: there were none to make. Of course, now things are different, although depending on the type of specialist accident lawyer in Merthyr Tydfil that you need, you may, or may not, be able to find an appropriate one.

    The problem with trying to find an accident lawyer in Merthyr Tydfil, or one elsewhere in the British Isles, is that you need to find one who specialises in handling claims for people who have had the same kind of accident or illness as you.

    For example, if you slipped, tripped or fell in a shop, you would require an accident lawyer in Merthyr Tydfil who was an expert in filing claims and winning compensation for people who were injured in accidents in public places; one who was an expert in filing clinical negligence claims would not really be the best person to help you.

    Claims for illnesses

    In the past, workers became ill because of their working conditions and even today, you might have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease. However, if you are, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer. For help and information, why not call us at Accident Advice Helpline?
