Can smokers still claim compensation for asbestos disease?

By |May 17th, 2021|

There are four main forms of asbestos disease – asbestosis, pleural thickening, mesothelioma, and asbestos lung cancer. All four types of the disease are caused by exposure to asbestos.

The most toxic kinds of asbestos were banned in 1985. The decades of the ...

Is there a catch with no win, no fee claims?

By |May 7th, 2021|

It is not so long ago that legal aid was available for personal injury claimants. A claimant who had the protection of legal aid could pursue their injury claim, safe in the knowledge they would not have to pay their own solicitors’ costs, whether they won the case, or not. Legal Aid also acted as protection against having to pay the other side’s costs in the event that they lost their case.All of this changed, ...

I had an accident at work, but did not report it – can I still claim?

By |April 16th, 2021|

At Mooneerams personal injury solicitors, we get asked to handle hundreds of personal injury claims every year for people who have been injured in accidents at work.

Life as a Law Student During Lockdown (Student Blog)

By |April 15th, 2021|

Thinking back to the start of last year, I remember the initial conversations between my housemates and I, surrounding the topic of this new 'Coronavirus' that was beginning to creep into media stories. At the time, I remember it being said that it would never come to the UK, and the story would go away as fast as it had come.Fast forward a few weeks, and we found ourselves reading a news article from the ...

5 Top Tips to Avoid a Car Accident This Summer

By |April 12th, 2021|

This summer is likely to be markedly different from any most of us have known before. Coming out with such a dramatic statement isn’t drawn from any psychic-like knowledge of what the weather will be like! Rather, it is made on the basis that we will (hope upon hope) be emerging from the nightmare that has been the worldwide Covid19 pandemic.As long as the individually planned roadmaps out of the Covid lockdown of Wales, England ...

Why is farming so dangerous?

By |March 18th, 2021|

If you ever got asked what you thought was the most dangerous type of job you could have, what would your answer be? Working in the building trade, perhaps? You'd certainly be correct in thinking it is right up there as one of the most dangerous occupations. Statistically, though, it's not the most hazardous. How about farming? Whilst you ponder that, let's tell you the answer, anyway. It is the farming and agriculture industry. The Health and ...

Slip and Trip Hazards in the Workplace

By |March 4th, 2021|

In most people’s eyes, slip and trip accidents at work probably wouldn’t obviously rank amongst the most serious types of accident claims that a personal injury solicitor would have to deal with on a day to day basis. Whilst that might be true in some instances, it would be wrong to dismiss slip, trip and fall accidents as inherently trivial matters. Lies, damn lies and statistics The annual Health and Safety Executive statistics on non-fatal ...
