Mesothelioma Claims – Workplace Negligence

Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos and which can take several decades to develop. It affects the mesothelial cells which form the outer surface of most of our internal organs. Mesothelioma primarily reaches the lungs and the abdomen.

People who have worked in particular industries are more likely to have been exposed to higher levels of asbestos. They include:

  • Heavy industry workers
  • Ship-building workers
  • Electricians; Carpenters
  • Plumbers; Heating engineers
  • Construction workers
  • Chemists
  • Power station workers
  • Engineers
  • Oil refinery workers
  • Laboratory workers.

Still, there are no restrictions on who can be affected.


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