Bubbenhall (Bubenhalle in the Domesday Book of 1086), clearly has a long history. It is a village in Warwickshire, which was once bounded by the Forest of Arden. The village relied on standpipes for their water, which came from a stream known as “The Spout,” but pipes were laid in the 1960s, bringing the village into the (then) twentieth century. There are still tracts of ancient woodland around Bubbenhall and a quarry where limestone is quarried. If you have an accident and are injured there, you are unlikely to find a firm of specialist solicitors Bubbenhall in the village.
Specialist solicitors in Bubbenhall could help with a claim
If you are injured in an accident that you can prove was in no way your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. You would need the services of a specialist personal injury solicitor who could help you build a case to prove your innocence. Specialist solicitors in Bubbenhall, or ones anywhere else in the UK, can tell you how long you have from the date of your accident in which to file a claim. Although you usually have three years in which to claim for an accident that happened in the British Isles, you may have much less time, perhaps only nine months, in which to file a claim.
Specialist solicitors in Bubbenhall could also help build a case to prove that an illness you have been diagnosed with was caused by another person’s negligence. For this type of illness you have three years from first being diagnosed in which to file your claim.
Dangers of working with stone
If you work with stone in the construction industry or as a stonemason, you should be aware of the health risks. If your employer has not informed you about them and you contract an occupational disease, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against him or her. This is one type of illness that can be caused by another person’s negligence.
Silica is present in stone, although not in the same quantities in different stone types. For example, limestone and marble would typically contain only 2% silica, while sandstone might have between 70 and 90% silica in it. When cut and so on, silica produces a very fine dust, (respirable crystalline silica RCSs) and if this is breathed in over a period of time, workers might develop silicosis or another respiratory disease. RCS comes under the Control of Substances Harmful to Health (COSHH) regulations and your employer should follow these strictly, as should you.
