Asbestos related disease is a very serious problem in the UK. It takes several main forms:

Sadly, the UK’s heritage of heavy industry, shipbuilding and construction means that many former workers in these trades are now suffering the terrible legacy of asbestos. Where once it was considered a miracle material, we now know it as a killer and men and women all over the UK are suffering as a result.

Inhaling the deadly fibres is the primary cause of pleural mesothelioma, as well as other debilitating conditions, However, even though the dangers were recognised several decades ago, many employers failed to keep their workers safe, through training or by the provision of safety equipment. The toll on human health has been catastrophic.

If you are suffering from Asbestosis or Mesothelioma, you may be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries.

If you are suffering from COPD which may have been caused or made worse by your employer’s potential negligence regarding your safety, you may have a valid compensation claim.
