The term “personal injury” covers more than just a broken bone from a slip, trip or fall, or whiplash as a result of a road traffic accident. There is another kind of personal injury that can be extremely debilitating: industrial disease. You may need to find a personal injury lawyer in Rowen to make a claim.
What does “industrial disease” mean?
Conditions and illnesses that occur as a result of exposure to dangerous substances or unsafe conditions in the workplace are industrial diseases. They may develop through use of unsafe machinery, for example.
Certain forms of cancer may also be industrial diseases. Lung cancer and bladder cancer may be caused by diesel fumes, a known carcinogen. People who have worked in construction or on the railways may be at risk.
Why do I need to find a personal injury lawyer in Rowen for my industrial disease?
If you have an industrial disease, you could be prevented from working for a long time – or even permanently. Whatever the situation you face, there will be a lot of stress and worry. Medical treatment can be very difficult, as can coping with loss of income. Why not recoup your losses by claiming compensation?
I’m not sure whether I would qualify to claim. What do I do?
You can try our 30-second test. This is a free and simple compensation calculator on our website. It will tell you whether you qualify, and give you an estimate of the value of your claim.

Why should I choose Accident Advice Helpline for a personal injury lawyer in Rowen?
Since we started as a personal injury law firm over 16 years ago, we have built up a strong reputation in the field. This is because we adhere to four key principles:
As a result, we have grown to become one of the largest law firms in the UK. Esther Rantzen, the noted consumer affairs campaigner, was so impressed by our approach that she became our patron in 2003.
It is a good idea to gather evidence and keep it in a file for convenience. Keep records of the medical treatment you receive, and file receipts for expenses related to your industrial disease. All this will assist your personal injury lawyer in Rowen.
As for the amount that you will receive if your claim is successful, we can provide an estimate but not a final figure. Everyone’s case is different. If you lose your case, you will not need to pay fees, because all our solicitors work on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis.
Finally, the normal three year limit to make a personal injury claim is extended in the case of industrial disease because the exact onset cannot be pinpointed.
