Brora is a village in the east of Sutherland, in the Highland area of Scotland. Interestingly, Brora was the very first place in the North of Scotland to have electricity and this was thanks to it’s wool industry. Stone from the quarry of Brora was used to construct the London Bridge and Liverpool Cathedral. Predominantly the biggest employer in the village was the coal mine which was the most northerly coalmine in the whole of the United Kingdom. If you were employed in the coal mine and have suffered as an effect then you can contact an injury solicitor in Brora, free of charge, today to discuss your circumstances with a professional adviser who may be able to begin a case on your behalf for compensation, with no money needed upfront.
The injury solicitor in Brora like other lawyers has a standard three year policy for compensation claims. This means that if your accident occurred more than three years ago we cannot take on your case – however, for industrial diseases and accidents we have abolished this rule. The reason for this is the effects of industrial diseases can take many years to fully show themselves and we believe this should not mean that you cannot receive compensation.
Industrial diseases can be devastating, life limiting or even fatal. Coal mining was one of the most dangerous sectors to work in with the labour being tough, the hours long and the environment hazardous, many chemicals were exposed to employees which would not be allowed now, such as asbestos.
The injury solicitor in Brora can help you make a claim against an old employer even if that company no longer exists! If you were a miner, or manual worker even over a decade ago and are now suffering the effects of your labour through things such as;
- Repetitive strain injury
- Vibration white finger
- Industrial deafness
- Industrial dermatitis
- Respiratory disease
- Lung Cancer
- And many many more
