Son of deceased coal miner question
My father suffered long term lung problems, he worked for the Coal Board with insufficient breathing apparatus and died in 2001 of: pulmonary oedema, cardiogenic shock, massive myocardial infarction, 2 peripheral vascular disease.
One of my father’s friends who also worked in the coal mines has informed me that because of the lung disease I should be able to be compensated for my loss
Industrial lung disease solicitor response
As your father died in the region of 10 years ago – any claim his family would have had will likely be time barred.
Had his death been in the last three years there could well have been a possibility of a claim.
If your father was a member of a union – you would likely be entitled to have a union solicitor look at the particular circumstances of his exposure to ensure that you are in actual fact out of time to claim.
