    Expert Injury Solicitors in Mitcheldean

    Mitcheldean is situated in the Royal Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire. It is a small market town which started as a hamlet, but grew because of the iron ore mined there. It was also a centre for crafts, which sprang up from utilising the raw materials available in the area. You may or may not find a firm of expert injury solicitors in Mitcheldean, however, but if you think you have a potential personal injury compensation claim to make, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers, below.

    Dangers of working with iron ore

    Although iron ore is no longer mined around Mitcheldean, there are health risks involved for those who come into contact with iron ore dustIron oxide and silica are the main culprits when it comes to posing health hazards. Lung cancer is just one of the diseases which people who work with iron ore can contract, although this is thought to be caused by exposure to silica. Workers who have contact with iron ore should be medically examined at regular intervals so that any health problems can be spotted early. Experts have also recommended that there should be routine environmental monitoring and evaluation of the chemical composition of iron ore dust in mines.
