Accident specialist in Northallerton


Do you need an accident specialist in Northallerton? Part of Northallerton’s successful economy in the past lay in the fact that there were reserves of phosphorus in the area. Phosphorus, the chemical element, is obtained from various phosphate compounds which are found in rocks, sand and so on, so they occur naturally. Phosphorus can be used to manufacture many items, such as fertilisers, soft drinks, rat poison and so on. Our bodies contain this element and we need it, so are encouraged to eat food such as liver which is rich in it.

Workers in match factories in the 19th century were exposed to white phosphorous vapour and many developed a painful degenerative jaw condition known as “phossy jaw.” It is no longer used in the manufacture of matches, nor is it put in rat poison now. Unfortunately, those workers in match factories in the 19th century could not make personal injury compensation claims against their employers for work-related illnesses and occupational diseases as we now can. There were no injury solicitors in Northallerton, or any in other parts of the country in those days.

Accident specialist in Northallerton

You can make a personal injury compensation claim with the help of an accident specialist in Northallerton, if you have an illness, such as a work-related one (“phossy jaw” for example) if you can prove that you contracted the illness because of the negligence of another person (in the case of a work-related illness, this would be the negligence of your employer). Employers have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees and to provide them with a safe and healthy working environment. This, of course, was not the case in the 19th century and workers often did their jobs in appalling conditions.

You have three years in which to file a claim for an illness that you and your injury solicitors in Northallerton, or ones based elsewhere, can prove was the result of another person’s negligence.

You also have three years if you claim for injuries that were sustained in an accident within the UK if you and your injury solicitors can prove you were not to blame for it in any way.

You only have two years in which to make a claim for injuries which you incurred in an accident at sea, in the air, or at most airports in the world, if you were an innocent victim. You also only have two years to claim for injuries sustained in a violent crime in the UK.
