    Injury Lawyer in Ashington

    Ashington is a town and civil parish in Northumberland with a population of around 27,000 which was once a centre of the coal mining industry. Ashington was considered to be the “world’s largest coal-mining village” and the last mine to close in the town wasn’t until 2005, which makes it one of the last ones in the country. Accident Advice Helpline are seeing an increasing number of clients pursuing work-related injuries, more specifically vibration white finger and asbestos cases, which are worryingly common.

    Asbestos was once widely used in industry and construction, but in recent times its harmful effects have become more apparent. The first asbestos compensation claim was made — and incidentally won — back in the 1800s! If you were exposed to asbestos and are now suffering from a related condition such as breathing difficulties, asthma or lung cancer, then you may be entitled to make an asbestos claim through an injury lawyer in Ashington. Asbestos-related disease causes more than 5,000 deaths every year.

    Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lung lining, of which exposure to asbestos is the only known cause. It usually takes from 20 to 50 years to develop. The number of people affected by mesothelioma is still rising and is expected to peak around 2020. This is why Accident Advice Helpline and our injury lawyer in Ashington always extend the usual three-year period for compensation in cases relating to asbestos and other industrial injuries.
