Asbestos Related Diseases

Asbestos Related Diseases

Asbestos is estimated to kill approximately 5000 people each year and is still a major threat to industry workers. Exposure to asbestos can have serious implications for individuals; many are unaware of the damage until years after the initial exposure due to the length of time it takes for the body to display symptoms.

Where you have been exposed to the hazardous substance at work you may be eligible to claim compensation, even in cases where the exposure has occurred decades before. To speak to a specialist solicitor about pursuing an asbestos related disease claim please don’t hesitate to contact Farleys’ Personal Injury team on 0333 331 4802, or alternatively you can email us.

Asbestos Related Diseases

A favoured material in the construction industry for many years, asbestos was widely used for decades in residential, commercial and community building projects prior to the knowledge of its dangers. As a result millions of trades workers were exposed to asbestos before its health implications were fully realised.

Due to the delayed onset of symptoms, where exposure has occurred, many individuals will remain unaware of the damage caused until they are diagnosed with one of the following fatal diseases:

  • Asbestosis: serious scarring and damage to the lung which in severe cases can prove fatal
  • Asbestos induced lung cancer: the same form of cancer as caused by smoking or inhaling other toxic substances
  • Mesothelioma: a form of cancer that attacks the lining of the lungs and the lining of the lower digestive tract
  • Pleural Plaques: the thickening and swelling of the walls of the lung which can cause severe distress to the suffer causing difficulty to breathe

Making an Asbestos Claim

Time should not discourage you from pursuing a claim as we have successfully acted on behalf of clients where exposure has occurred up to thirty years before. Where it can be established that the employer was negligent, failing to warn their employees about the dangers of asbestos you may be liable to claim. Even in cases where the company is no longer in operation a claim can still be made against the insurance company which offered insurance at the time of exposure.

Our specialist solicitors will be on hand to support you through the entirety of your claim from making the initial call to agreeing a final settlement. We will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
