If you live in Llanwern, near Newport in south Wales, you will know that you won’t find injury solicitors in Llanwern. You would have to travel to nearby Newport or Cardiff. In the area the name Llanwern is synonymous with the steel works located there. Now this is owned by Tata but it no longer produces steel, although it still has a hot and cold strip mill along with a hot strip galvanizing line.
The old steel works at Llanwern employed thousands from the local area but some of those who spent at least part of their working lives there suffered from a range of illnesses and diseases. These ranged from industrial deafness through to allergic dermatitis and respiratory problems.
Injury solicitors in Llanwern
You may be looking for a firm of injury solicitors in Llanwern if you have been diagnosed with an illness or disease which you can prove was the result of the negligence of another person. It could be, for example, that you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, and you and your injury solicitors in Llanwern, for example, could prove that it was caused by your employer’s negligence. You have three years from first being diagnosed with such an illness in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, there are some exceptions to this general rule, so it would be advisable to check with a firm of injury solicitors in Llanwern, or ones based close to where you live, to find out if you can still make a claim. You can also get this information from us at Accident Advice Helpline.
You can also file a personal injury compensation claim if you have been involved in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You usually have three years in which to make such a claim, but there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years to file a claim. Check with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have in which to file your specific claim. You can call us on one of our freephone numbers which you will find below.
If you work in a noisy environment, you should be provided with ear defenders so that deafness, or partial deafness may be avoided. If you have lost your hearing because of your working environment, you may be able to claim compensation for this.
