    You may be seeking expert injury lawyers in Middleton by Wirksworth for a number of reasons, although you probably won’t find any in the village.

    Expert injury lawyers in Middleton by Wirksworth

    You may need the services of injury lawyers in Middleton by Wirksworth, for example, if you have been injured in an accident in the last two or three years, and you can prove that the accident was caused by someone else. You have three years in the case of most accidents which occur in the British Isles in which to file a claim. However if the accident in which you were injured occurred at sea, in an aircraft or at an airport, then you only have two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. The same is true if you have been injured in an act of violence in England, Wales and Scotland.

    Another reason for searching for a firm of injury lawyers is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence. You have three years in which to file a claim for this type of illness.

    Lead poisoning

    Middleton by Wirksworth once was a lead-mining centre. Lead poisoning can occur when you are exposed to lead over the course of the years. People who worked in lead mines could have had lead poisoning in the past, and if that occurred these days, one could file a personal injury compensation claim against an employer if the employer had not provided one with adequate protective gear designed to prevent the build-up of lead in workers’ bodies.

    It isn’t just large amounts of lead that can cause lead-poisoning, as even small amounts can harm people; especially vulnerable are children under the age of six. Not only can lead-poisoning be fatal, but it can also harm a child’s mental and physical development.

    Lead was used in paint and for pipes and roofing material in the not so distant past, and if you live in an older house, you should check to ensure the pipes are not made of lead, as particles could find their way into your drinking water.
