Asbestos can be found in many buildings and products and is usually safe as long as it is not disturbed by, for example, a demolition. However, if asbestos particles are inhaled then they can cause fatal illnesses. It can take as long as 20 years from the initial exposure to asbestos until symptoms of the diseases become apparent.

Some of the diseases that are caused by exposure to asbestos include:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Asbestosis
  • Lung Cancer
  • Laryngeal Cancer
  • Pleural plaques
  • Pleural thickening
  • Pleural effusion
  • You should talk to your doctor if you have:

  • had any past or present jobs with exposure to asbestos
  • have lived with someone who has worked in a job with asbestos risk
  • have engaged in DIY or other building situations where you might have been exposed to asbestos or
  • lived near a building with or that uses asbestos.
  • Your GP can then make sure your exposure to asbestos is recorded in your medical records.

    Normally, you will have three years to start a court action from the date you are diagnosed with the disease. On some, (albeit rare) occasions, the limit can be changed but it is best to start proceedings as soon as possible. if you think you or a family member has been injured by the inhalation of asbestos contact us today. We will then investigate the medical issues and obtain evidence to assess and prove the potential value of the claim.

    There can be many difficulties with cases that began more than twenty years ago. In particular, the company or companies might have disappeared. At Aly & Hulme, our specialist lawyers can find out whether the company (or a successor company) can be found and whether there is any insurance still available.

    Damages can be awarded for pain, suffering and the loss of quality of life caused by the resulting illness. Specific damages can also be awarded to offset the inability to work, medical costs, and cost of ongoing treatment. Claims can be made by the person who suffers the disease, or by the family of someone who died from an asbestos-related disease.

    There are a several ways for people suffering from health issues related to asbestos to obtain compensation. You can bring an action against your former employers (or the companies responsible for the exposure to the asbestos); and in some cases, you can claim from the Government. It is important to speak to an expert personal injury solicitor if you believe that you (or a member of your family) have been exposed to asbestos and are suffering as a result.
