Asbestos the Hidden Killer?

Asbestos comprises minute mineral silicate fibres. These can't be broken down or removed by the body and are highly irritant. Asbestos fibres cause scarring to the tissue linings of the lung, making gaseous exchange and breathing difficult. Prolonged high level exposure to asbestos may lead to Asbestosis, benign or diffuse Pleural Thickening and Asbestos induced lung cancer, also known as Mesothelioma.

Asbestos Exposure - Who does it affect?

Asbestos exposure may affect anyone in a position or work environment where breathing in of asbestos fibres could have occurred. This includes those who worked extensively with asbestos for example repairing boilers, demolishing buildings, and asbestos removal workers.

Onset of an asbestos related disease is slow and the exposure to asbestos could have occurred 20 or 30 years prior to illness.

Can I make an Asbestos Exposure Claim for Compensation?

  1. You must have been diagnosed with an Asbestos related industrial disease.
    • Exposure alone to Asbestos is not enough to make a claim for compensation.
    • In England & Wales it is not possible to claim for Pleural Plaques.
  2. It was diagnosed within the last 3 Years.
  3. It is due to past or present employment.
It is essential that you have been diagnosed with an Asbestos related illness in order to make a claim for compensation. The exposure to asbestos probably occurred several years prior to the onset of the illness and most likely was due to some form of work. It is not possible to claim for simply being exposed to Asbestos.
