Asbestosis Claims

Asbestosis is a chronic (long-term) condition and is only one of the illnesses caused by prolonged exposure to asbestos. It’s a lung disease that puts the patient at a high risk of developing:

  • Mesothelioma – a type of cancer that affects the membrane that covers the heart, lungs and gut
  • Lung cancer
  • Pleural disease – when the pleura (the membrane covering the lungs) becomes thicker

Asbestosis affects employees exposed to asbestos while working in industries such as:

  • Insulation
  • Shipbuilding
  • Railways
  • Electricity Generation
  • Construction.


How long do I have to put in a compensation claim?

Usually you have three years to start legal proceedings for personal injury, however in the case of claims related to Asbestos or delayed symptoms f you would have three years from the date the symptoms / causes were identified by a professional.

If in doubt about your right to claim or if a deadline is fast approaching please call us we will be happy to look into your case.
