two lawyers talking.

Injury solicitors Newton Abbot

If you live in Newton Abbot, you may be looking for injury solicitors Newton Abbot in order to file a personal injury compensation claim for an injury or injuries which you sustained in an accident which you, with the aid of your injury solicitors Newton Abbot, can prove was not your fault. If the accident happened in Britain, you have three years in which to file your claim. If, however it occurred at sea, in the air or at an airport (anywhere in the world, as long as the country is a signatory of the Montreal Convention), you only have two years in which to file a claim.

Another reason for needing a firm of injury solicitors Newton Abbot-based (or ones based elsewhere in the UK, for that matter) is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. An example of such an illness is a work-related one.

One example of work-related illness

Ball clay contains from 1% to 70% quartz, which is silica-bearing. The process of refining ball clay, from the open-cast mining stage to the material used by potters, requires breaking down the raw material which can release quantities of silica into the working environment. If you are exposed to respirable crystalline silica (RCSs) you may develop one of the forms of silicosis, which begins with a hardening or scarring of the lung tissue.

Silicosis is a recognized work-related illness and eventually a sufferer will become house-bound, if not bed-ridden as it results in shortness of breath. Silica has also been linked to lung cancer, so people who work with the substance should be provided with breathing apparatus and protective clothing. An employer who fails to safeguard the health and safety of his or her employees can be deemed negligent and be liable to pay compensation for injuries and illnesses which occur because of the working environment.
