Claiming with a personal injury lawyer in Louth for the effects of the coal mines
Coal mines can cause some awful chest diseases and in the past there have been huge numbers of claims because of them. Over several years over 100,000 men have successfully made injury claims from injuries sustained whilst working in the mines. Unfortunately, there were probably many more who died from the diseases before the claims were made, who had nothing.
Claiming with a personal injury lawyer in Louth for injuries sustained in factories
Prolonged exposure to loud noise causes industrial deafness. This often happens in factories and the employer should do whatever is possible to reduce the noise and if that is not enough, they should provide ear protection. In recent years, BMW workers got compensation for industrial deafness caused by working in the BMW factory in the 1960s and 1970s, more than 25 years after the problem that caused it.
