Lulworth Cove is situated on the Jurassic coast and the whole area was granted World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 2001. Most of the village of Lulworth is part of the Lulworth Estate owned by the Weld family. Some land in the area is owned by the Ministry of Defence too, so this land is only open to the public on weekends and Bank holidays. You may have visited Lulworth castle, which is now a museum.
You are unlikely to find a firm of injury lawyers in Lulworth Cove, although you may find fossils preserved in the limestone cliffs and small boats moored off the Cove. So what do you do if you have an accident there which you can prove was not your fault? There is little point in looking for injury lawyers in Lulworth Cove to represent you in a personal injury compensation claim case, so why not call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers given below?
Injury lawyers in Lulworth Cove
You may also be in need of injury lawyers in Lulworth Cove, for example, if you have been diagnosed as having an illness which you and a firm of injury lawyers in Lulworth Cove (if there was one) could prove was the result of another person’s negligence.
You generally have three years in which to file any personal injury compensation claim, with exceptions to this rule being if you were injured in:-
- a violent crime in England, Scotland or Wales;
- an accident on board a ship or boat while it was at sea;
- an accident in the air; and
- an accident at an airport anywhere in the world, as long as the country in which it is situated is a signatory of the Montreal Convention.
For such accidents and injuries you have only two years in which to make your claim.
If you work with rock and stone, including limestone, you may be exposed to varying levels of respirable crystalline silica. If inhaled over a long period of time, you could get silicosis, a recognized occupational disease if you work in quarrying, foundries, potteries, as a stone mason and in the construction industry.
You should wear appropriate protective clothing, as well as goggles, breathing equipment and gloves if you are likely to come into contact with silica in your working environment. Should this silica dust get into your eyes, wash them with plenty of water and seek medical treatment.
Always wear protective gear and use breathing apparatus when in an environment likely to contain respirable crystalline silica.
