Injury solicitors in Rotherham

Rotherham has been known for its iron and steel industries for centuries and the early foundries of the Industrial Revolution would not have been either safe or healthy to work in. Of course at that time there was no redress for workers who suffered from industrial diseases as there were no personal injury compensation claims to make, and no injury solicitors in Rotherham, or elsewhere, to help people file compensation claims against employers.

Why look for injury solicitors in Rotherham?

If you sustain an injury in any kind of accident which you and your injury solicitors in Rotherham can prove you were not responsible for, you may be entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim. Normally you would have three years in which to file such a claim, although there are exceptions to this rule, as you would suspect. Therefore, you should find out how long you have in which to file your claim, as you cannot claim compensation for injuries if the limitation period has expired, unless you can prove exceptional circumstances prevented you from filing a claim. To find out how long you have to file your claim, contact injury solicitors in Rotherham or ones based near to where you live, or call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers below.

If you have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your injury solicitors in Rotherham can prove was caused because of another person’s negligence, you may also have grounds on which to base a personal injury compensation claim. You have three years from first being told by your doctor that you have this kind of illness in which to make your claim.

Illness and the steel industry

If you work or have worked in the steel industry, you may have been exposed to silica in the form of respirable crystalline silica (RCS) and you could be suffering from one of a number of illnesses associated with it, including lung cancer. You may have been diagnosed with pneumoconiosis, or silicosis, caused by the inhalation of dust which results in the hardening of the tissues in the lungs.

If you work in an atmosphere where dust is prevalent, you should have been equipped with breathing apparatus and been trained in how to work in relative safety in such an environment. If you were not trained in how to stay healthy, or if you were not given protective gear (including coveralls) then you may have good grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim against your employer who has a duty to protect your health and safety while you are at work.
