These are a small sample of the problems that may occur and mean you should make an injury claim in Pannal.
Asbestos is one of the worst
Exposure to asbestos is one of the worst industrial problems. In the second half of the last century, asbestos was used extensively on construction, shipbuilding and manufacturing. It is a cheap, flexible and almost indestructible material but unfortunately turned out to be very dangerous and was banned in the UK towards the end of the century. It is made up of millions of fibres which are perfectly safe providing nothing disturbs the. Even the slightest movement, or draft, turns them to dust and it is this which creates the problems. It settles in the lining of the lungs and many years later can turn to an industrial illness which will possibly mean making an injury claim in Pannal.
Other industrial illnesses and diseases
Although asbestos is the worst, other industrial conditions are no less debilitating and can cause great stress to the victim. If you have developed any illness, disease or injury because of your job, and your employer has not taken the necessary precautions to prevent this, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Pannal.
Making and industrial personal injury compensation claim
Any injury that you have sustained because of someone else’s fault or negligence, you have to make your claim within three years of it happening. As these diseases can take so long to show themselves that is not always possible.
