Perranarworthal is a village in Cornwall where you can see the wharves on Restronguet Creek, where timber from Norway was imported and used in the mines in the area (long since closed). This part of Perranarworthal’s long history remains in memory because of the Norway Inn which is close to the creek. There was also a foundry in the village, but this closed down in March 1879. Working conditions had not been good for those in the foundry, but with its closure, families sank into poverty.
Workers in the 19th century had no redress if they became ill because of their working environment, or if they were injured in an accident that was not their fault.
In those days there were no personal injury compensation claims and certainly no specialist injury solicitors in Perranarworthal, or any elsewhere.

You may require the services of injury solicitors Perranarworthal, or ones based elsewhere in the UK if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim if the accident occurred in Britain. There are other accidents, such as those that occur in the air, at most airports in the world, and at sea, that you only have two years in which to claim for your injuries.
Illnesses caused by negligence
You may also be seeking a firm of injury solicitors if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove is, or was, the result of another person’s negligence. Had you been a 19th century foundry worker, this might have been tuberculosis, silicosis, and so on.
These illnesses are still with us, but if you contract them because of your work, then you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim against your employer who has a responsibility for the health and safety of workers and failure to ensure this (as far as possible) could be legally construed as negligence.
Work-related illnesses and occupational diseases are an example of illnesses which could be caused by another person’s negligence. Food poisoning, Legionnaire’s Disease and so on are others.
