Historically, many people have been exposed to asbestos and this can result in the development of an asbestos-related illness, usually 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 a change in legislation in the late 1980’s, it was widely used in industry. Those most at risk are people who worked in the trades of joinery, plumbing, engineering, lagging or working at dockyards. It is also possible to have come into contact with asbestos as a result of secondary exposure, through washing overalls covered in asbestos dust, or even through contact with the material in old buildings.
Exposure can lead to a number of related illnesses, for which you can claim compensation. These include:
- Pleural plaques
- Diffuse pleural thickening
- Lung cancer
These illnesses are often distressing and debilitating and, if you or a loved one have been affected, then we are here to help. We have a wealth of experience and specialist knowledge in dealing with these claims, as well as a caring and empathetic approach to assist you.
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.
