Asbestos Related Illness
Time to act…
Used in the 1960s and 1970s in a wide range of industries, including mining, construction and shipbuilding, a significant number of people may have been exposed to asbestos while at work. Asbestos exposure can even occur indirectly, for example as a heating engineer disturbing lagging etc.
Symptoms and diagnosis of an asbestos related illness can take a long time to appear and there are a number of illness that can be caused by exposure, including:
- Pleural plaques
- Pleural thickening
- Lung cancer
If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos related illness it is important that you make a claim as soon as possible. You have three years from the date you became aware that your symptoms were due to exposure to asbestos to make your claim.
We may be able to help even if the company you worked for are no longer in business or you cannot remember even being exposed to asbestos.
Understanding that this is a difficult time, our team of expert solicitors are on hand to advise you of your options and work with you every step of the way to get the best possible result for your case.
