Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral which is still mined in some parts of the world. It is made up of incredibly small fibres which can be very damaging to the human body when inhaled. 2 million asbestos fibres can fit on the head of a pin and they can cause fatal and disabling diseases such as Mesothelioma, Asbestosis, Lung Cancer and Pleural Thickening. If you or a family member is a victim of such a disease, you may be entitled to make an asbestos claim and be eligible for compensation.
Asbestos was widely used before its ban due to its useful qualities. It is resistant to flames, a good insulator and resistant to acid. Unfortunately, as it was widely used, it put a lot of workers at risk across a variety of industries.
It can take anything up to 40 years or more for the symptoms of conditions such as mesothelioma and asbestosis to emerge, with the original asbestos exposure often many years previously. Even if you no longer work for the employer who may have caused you to become exposed to asbestos fibres or if they have gone out of business, don’t worry! Asbestos claims can still be made against those not trading and who do not currently employ you, even if this has been the case for many years.
