    Injury claims lawyers in St. Austell


    St. Austell is a major town in Cornwall. One of the earliest references to St Austell is in John Leland’s Itinerary, where he says “At S. Austelles is nothing notable but the paroch chirch”.

    Employers in St Austell have the same legal responsibilities as employers any where else in Cornwall, or the rest of the UK – they have to protect the health and safety of their employees in the work place. This is not only to protect them from one off accidents, but also from more long term problems such as industrial illnesses and conditions.

    Some of of these conditions can take up to 40 years to develop, but that does not mean you would be barred from making a personal injury compensation claim using injury claims lawyers in St. Austell.

    Industrial illnesses and conditions

    There are numerous illnesses and conditions that can be caused through employment if the employer does not take the necessary precautions, just some of these are:

    • Carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Asbestosis
    • Asbestos-related lung cancer
    • Emphysema
    • Dermatitis
    • Back injuries
    • Malignant mesothelioma
    • Industrial Deafness
    • Hand-arm vibration syndrome
    • Repetitive strain injury

    Any of these caused through your work would mean you could make a personal injury compensation claim using injury claims lawyers in St. Austell.

    The timescale of industrial illnesses and conditions

    Many of the illnesses and conditions mentioned above do not develop overnight. Some take a couple of years and others can take up to 40 years to show. Because of this, the three-year rule is adjusted to say that you have three years from the date of diagnosis rather than three years from the date it happened. This is particularly important with asbestos and other dangerous substance related claims.
