The Scottish town of Banknock was once a booming coal mining town. The north sides of the town were lined with coal mines and one of local landmarks, known as “the Bing” is actually a slag heap from one of the largest mines, Cannerton Pit.
The town once had a railway station on the Kilsyth to Bonnybridge Railway, and the line was used to serve the mines in their heyday. Because of the industrial nature of the area you will find, when speaking to a personal injury lawyer in Banknock, that they have come to specialise in industrial accidents, and injuries and illnesses caused by the workplace.
As with all legal firms specialising in industrial illnesses, the standard three year application rule is not set in stone – particularly if the victim was found to have suffered while in the workplace. Research has shown that some industrial diseases can take up to fifteen years to develop, so a personal injury lawyer in Banknock could act on behalf of a victim many years after the employment had finished.
Personal Injury Lawyer in Banknock – The dangers of industrial disease.
The problem with any industrial disease is that the effects can lie dormant for many years until they come to light. One of the most notorious disease triggers in recent years was asbestos which was once commonly used in construction. Asbestos should now have been removed from all buildings but there are those who worked with it who are still carrying on normal lives with the effects of the disease it causes yet to become apparent.
Should you, or someone you know start suffering any symptoms of industrial disease then you should contact a personal injury lawyer in Banknock immediately and get some expert legal advice.Open Claim Calculator
