    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Accident Lawyer in Warwick


    Accidents happen every day, in a whole range of settings – in public, at home, and at work. If it can be shown that the accident that you had was caused by someone else, and you sustained injury as a result, you could claim compensation through an accident lawyer in Warwick.

    There are other kinds of accident that don’t fit what we generally think of as “accidents”, too – and we can also help with those. You may have heard of them. They are called “industrial diseases”.

    What is an industrial disease?

    An industrial disease is something that you develop as a direct result of your work. Whereas an accident at work would usually cause immediate injury, an industrial disease can take several years to develop – and the date of onset cannot be determined.

    Examples include certain types of cancer, and these may be caused by dangerous substances. For many years, people worked in conditions in which they were constantly exposed to such substances. Perhaps the best known of these is asbestos.

    Who is at risk of developing an asbestos-related disease?

    If you worked in one of the following occupations, you could develop a disease because you were exposed to asbestos:

    • Boilermaking – because of the insulating properties of asbestos, it was routinely used to line boilers
    • Motor trade – mechanics were often dealing with asbestos because it was used in brake pads
    • Plumbing – water pipes were lagged with asbestos
    • Building – asbestos had so many applications in construction, because as well as being an insulator, it is a fire retardant

    You could have retired years ago from your job and been in good health, but you might develop a disease such as mesothelioma or asbestosis at any time. If this happens, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible – and after that, contact an accident lawyer in Warwick.
