    Injury lawyers in Sindelsham


    Do you need injury lawyers in Sindelsham?

    Sindelsham is an estate village in Berkshire. A chapel is believed to have been built as early as 1220.  A large 19th century, three-storey watermill on the River Loddon has more recently become a hotel. These were built before the introduction of asbestos, so none of the builders will have been exposed, made ill by it and have to make a personal injury claim using injury lawyers in Sindelsham.  Not like the workers in the construction industry, shipbuilding industry and manufacturing from the 1950’s to late 1980’s.  Many of them were exposed to asbestos, made seriously ill by the exposure and they should have made personal injury claims, using injury lawyers in Sindelsham.

    Of course, there aren’t any injury lawyers in Sindelsham, but that doesn’t matter. If you are looking for injury lawyers in Sindelsham without any luck, all you need do is to contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Why asbestos was used so extensively

    Asbestos was cheap, flexible, a low heat conductor and practically indestructible.  These attributes made it a very light and versatile material to use.  It was not until it has been in use for over 30 years, that it was discovered how dangerous it was and the use of it was banned totally in the UK in 1999.  Even now, if any is found, specialist teams, appropriately dressed, are brought in to remove it.

    How asbestos makes you ill

    Asbestos dust floats in the air, and it is this dust that is dangerous.  It gets taken into the lungs and can lie there dormant for many years.  Up to 40 years later, an illness or disease will become apparent, and then the victim might want to make a personal injury claim.

    It was not just the workers that were made ill by the dust.  It got in their clothes and they took it home to their families, many of whom also contracted the related diseases, and successfully made personal injury compensation claims.

    The Conditions Can Asbestos Cause

    There are many industrial illnesses and diseases related to exposure to asbestos, just a few of them are:

    • Asbestosis
    • Asbestos related lung cancer
    • Malignant mesothelioma
    • Pleural plaques
    • Diffuse pleural thickening
    • Benign asbestos pleural effusions
    • Rounded atelectasis (folded lung)

    These diseases can take up to 40 years to show themselves and therefore the 3 years rule for claims is adjusted.  For industrial illnesses and diseases, your claim has to be made within 3 years of the diagnosis of your illness.
