Asbestos Compensation & Asbestos Claims Lawyers
If you are a victim of an Asbestos-related illness, then we may be able to help you claim.
Asbestos-Related Disease Claims
Asbestos was widely used in the UK as a building material from the 1940s until the 1980s when it was banned. We now know that Asbestos is incredibly harmful to lung function. Working with asbestos without the right protection can lead to life-shortening illnesses. These include asbestosis, asbestos-induced lung cancer, mesothelioma and pleural thickening. If you or a loved one has an asbestos-related disease, then you may be able to claim.
What is Asbestosis?
Asbestosis is a disease where the lung tissue hardens. It is associated with prolonged and heavy exposure to asbestos dust.
Symptoms of asbestosis include:
- shortness of breath
- persistent cough
- dry crackling noise in your lungs
- chest pain
- lack of or difficulty sleeping
- loss of appetite and weight loss.
Asbestosis is a slowly progressive disease. It usually takes between 15 and 30 years to develop, after initial exposure to asbestos.
Making Compensation Claims for Asbestosis and Asbestos-Related Diseases
Because asbestos-related illness can take years to show, some victims do not know they may be able to make a claim. They may also think it is too late. Speaking to The Compensation Experts can help clarify your situation. We can provide you with the information so you can make the right choice for you.
We work with select personal injury lawyers who specialise in asbestos-related illnesses. Whether you are claiming for yourself or a loved one, you can expect your solicitor to gather the necessary evidence. This will prove the illness could have been avoided if the right precautions had been taken. Millions of British workers were exposed to asbestos up to the early 1980s. While many employers were aware of the risks associated with the material, they did not adequately educate or protect their staff. This led to tragic consequences for them and their families.
We certainly appreciate that our clients may be unwilling or unable to pay legal fees upfront with no guarantee of a positive result. So we offer a No win, no fee (*Conditions may apply. Please see details at the bottom of the page) contract to remove the financial risk associated with claiming compensation.
