    Personal Injury Solicitors in Alton

    We all think we understand what is meant by personal injury, but it can often be more complicated than that. This article shows why many longer term conditions often go un claimed and how you can go about finding a personal injury lawyer in Alton who can help with that claim.

    Long lasting conditions

    For the most part, we all think of a personal injury claim as dealing with a one off accident, such as a slip, trip or fall. It often never really occurs to us that it might be something a little more long lasting. However these are every bit as damaging as something which happens suddenly.

    Take the example of a factory worker who has been working in noisy conditions for much of his working life. Because his employer did not take reasonable precautions to reduce the noise or protect him from it, he’s developed a condition known as industrial deafness which has seen his hearing progressively degenerate over time. Often this is simply put down to age and the general wear and tear that we all go through, but it is also possible that this is something more serious.

    Another common issue is asbestos poisoning. This was used to line many buildings before its harmful effects were well known. As a result, some people have developed health problems as a result of long period being exposed to it.

    How we can help

To help us in this you can give us lots of information such as whether or not you raised concerns about the issue before to your employer and if so what action, if any was taken.
