    Health-related cases an accident lawyer in Rhymney can manage for you

    There are two types of health-related cases an accident lawyer in Rhymney can assist you with. They can help you with a case of medical negligence. They can also help you with cases in which your health has been damaged over a long time by working in certain conditions. For example, you can claim for compensation if your health suffers due to being exposed to asbestos over a number of years at work.

    What is asbestos?

    Asbestos is a natural substance. It’s mined from the ground. Up until the year 2000, asbestos was often used in the construction of new buildings. Since then, research has uncovered the fact that asbestos can be hazardous to the lungs. This is because asbestos contains tiny fibres that become airborne when the material is moved or disturbed. These small fibres can be inhaled, where they settle on the lungs and cause damage when a person is exposed to it for a number of years.

    What kind of health conditions?

    The health conditions associated with long-term exposure to asbestos include the following:

    1. Pleural thickening
    2. Asbestosis
    3. Asbestos-related lung cancer
    4. Mesothelioma (also a form of cancer).

    All forms of cancer are potentially fatal and can also cause incredible pain and discomfort. Not being able to breathe so well also impedes you from enjoying certain activities. Therefore if you have any of the aforementioned health conditions, you may wish to go ahead with a compensation claim for you and your family.
