Your employer has a duty of care to make sure your health and safety are not compromised, yet every year, asbestos kills around 5,000 workers.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an asbestos related condition, you’ll need the very best medical care and the peace of mind that your family will be looked after.
Long-term exposure to asbestos dust or fibres can cause a range of illnesses, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening. These diseases often take years to develop, making it difficult for people to pinpoint when and where the exposure took place. But our solicitors are very experienced in investigating asbestos claims and locating the parties responsible.
Asbestos related conditions
If you were exposed to asbestos through any of the following, we can help you make a claim:
- Working in an industry where asbestos was heavily used such as construction, manufacturing, shipbuilding and plumbing
- Your working environment – if asbestos was in your place of work and you were not made aware or protected – you could claim
- A loved one coming into secondary contact with asbestos as a result of a family member working with it (eg fibres being on clothes)
- Environmental exposure (living or coming into close contact with an asbestos factory
If you were exposed to asbestos and were not protected, we can help you claim on compensation. For more information on making an asbestos claim, call our experienced team of solicitors on 0808 274 6197 for a free consultation.
