In the United Kingdom we have become aware of the dangers associated with asbestos. We have also learned of the side effects caused when using vibrational tools for prolonged periods of time which can result in vibrational white finger. If you need professional personal injury solicitors to help you claim for industrial illness, read on.
It is a sad fact that many people have endured terrible illnesses over the realms of time which could have been avoided if only governments and employers had sat up and took notice of the research and evidence presented.
Facts associated with white finger have been available since 1975. The damaging effects of asbestos have been noted since 1898 when 50 workers in France died from working with the deadly fibres.
Professional personal injury solicitors: it’s time to claim
Despite these findings, asbestos still managed to find its way into industrial products, building materials, household textiles and appliances. The history books quote that asbestos was mined for over 4000 years and hit its peak in 1975 at a time when its dangers were already strongly highlighted. It was not until fifteen years later that the UK Government banned brown and blue asbestos. White asbestos was discontinued in 1999.
The time span between the authorities being alerted of the dangers and reacting to them was huge. As such, no win no fee solicitors now have to listen to harrowing stories of how people have died from injuries which could have been prevented.

Compensation claims advice over the phone
If the government take as long to react to scientific research associated to lead and diesel as they did with asbestos and vibrational white finger, we could be in for a long wait.
Therefore, people should take preemptive safety precautions themselves. For example, masks or ventilators should be worn when working in close proximity of diesel engines.
