Asbestos-related illnesses are disorders of the lung and pleura caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibres.
Asbestos-related diseases can vary in severity from non-malignant disorders such as asbestosis to malignant Mesothelioma, an aggressive lung cancer which has a prognosis of just one to two years.
These conditions are almost exclusively linked to asbestos exposure which, for many individuals, will have been contracted through the course of past or present work. The dangers posed by asbestos exposure have been known for many years, so employers are liable to pay compensation to those employees whom they have failed to protect as is their legal duty.
Our specialist asbestos-related disease lawyers provide immediate representation and sympathetic support for victims of asbestos exposure. We are familiar with the symptoms you will be experiencing and the issues that you and your loved ones will be facing. We understand all the legal difficulties for someone with this debilitating disease and can help you access much-needed compensation.
