If you are a resident of Newbridge, you may have a family member who used to work in one of the local coal mines. Most people living in the South Wales valleys had a relative who worked either in the coal mines or in the steel industry. If you are looking for a firm of injury lawyers in Newbridge, then you may have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the fault of another person’s negligence. An illness such as this could be a work-related one and if you can prove your employer’s negligence caused your illness, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. You have three years, generally, in which to do this.

Although emphysema is linked to smoking, it can also be caused by inhalation of dust particles and it has been associated with the coal industry. However, it used to be difficult to prove that it was caused by the dust, as many miners were also heavy smokers.
The coal dust settles in the lungs and causes damage to them and over time the person with emphysema finds it very difficult to breathe and has to have oxygen to help his (or her) survival. This generally means that the sufferer is housebound and loses their quality of life.
