We have assisted many sufferers who have initially been uncertain of when they have been exposed to asbestos.
Asbestos was widely used in very many industries during previous decades. Sadly people who have been exposed to asbestos dust can suffer from various different illnesses often many years after their initial asbestos exposure.
Most people who develop an asbestos illness will have been exposed to asbestos dust through their work. We have acted for people who have worked in may different trades and professions over the years. Some people for whom we have acted have been exposed to asbestos by coming into contact with the overalls of family members who have worked in industries using asbestos products, or by coming into contact with asbestos dust through living close to an asbestos factory.
Mesothelioma is a cancer, the only known cause of which is exposure to asbetsos dust. The most common part of the body which mesothelioma will effect is the pleura, the lining of the lung. However, it is also possible for mesothelioma to effect the peritoneum (the stomach cavity), or the pericardium (the heart lining). We are able to investigate your claim whichever type of mesothelioma you have been diagnosed with.
Asbestos Related Lung Cancer
Lung Cancer is caused by other factors in addition to asbestos dust exposure. To put forward a successful claim for asbestos related lung cancer, it is necessary to evidence a very high level of exposure to asbestos dust.
Asbestosis is a term which is often incorrectly used as a generic term to describe all asbestos related diseases.
Asbestos related Pleural Thickening
Asbestos related pleural thickening is a benign condition which can cause breathlessness.
Are a benign condition. Pleural plaques are a sign that you have been exposed to asbestos in the past but the plaques themselves do not usually cause any disability. It is no longer possible to make a compensation claim for pleural plaques in England.
