If you have been exposed to asbestos this can lead to asbestos-related illness, maybe many years after exposure. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with such a condition within the last 3 years, we may be able to help.

Illness caused by asbestos can take decades to develop and until recently it was widely used in industry. In fact, asbestos still hides in walls and roofspaces, boilers and scrapyards.

Those most at risk are people who worked in joinery, plumbing, engineering, the railways, lagging or working at dockyards, particularly from the 1950s-80s.You may also come into contact with asbestos through washing clothes contaminated with asbestos dust, or come across it in old buildings or machinery.

Exposure can lead to a number of related illnesses. These include:

  • Pleural plaques- a thickening of the lung tissue, which is often (but not always) symptomless.
  • Diffuse pleural thickening- a thickening that affects your breathing
  • Asbestosis- debilitating scarring of the lungs
  • Mesothelioma- an asbestos-specific type of cancer
  • Other (predominantly) lung cancers

These illnesses are often very serious and very debilitating, if you or a loved one have been affected, then we can help.

We have a wealth of experience and specialist knowledge in dealing with these claims, as well as a caring and practical approach to assist you. We can help you with Claims against your ex-employer, as well as Industrial Benefit claims, and financial advice.

As well as seeking financial compensation we can ensure that you and your family receive the right care and support at such a difficult time.
