    When people start looking for Blackwood, accident claim solicitors, they generally assume they are only looking for single accidents, but if you’ve been suffering from a long term condition, then you may also be able to make a claim.

    Finding Blackwood, accident claim solicitors

    One of these conditions which is often the subject of personal injury claims is asbestos poisoning. This was used as insulation in some old fashioned buildings but it can have a devastating affect on the people who live or work in the buildings. The tiny fibres can get into the lungs and cause all sorts of respiratory problems from minor inflammation and coughing to cancer in the most serious of cases.

    Assessing your case

    If you think you have suffered from asbestos poisoning it’s important to get yourself assessed by a doctor who will be able to tell you whether or not this is the case. From there you need to see if there is any blame to be apportioned.

    Let’s say, for instance, that you have been working in the same place for many years and that place has walls which are lined with asbestos. They have a responsibility to address this problem and if they knowingly failed to do so then they could be deemed negligent.

    Some people are wary about claiming compensation for these kinds of things because they don’t want to spoil their relationship with their employers. There is a real feeling that if you make a claim they can take action against you either by forcing you out of work, discriminating against you in the workplace or by denying promotions. However they are not allowed to do this, if they do you may well have further cause to bring a case against them.
