An aggressive and fatal form of cancer for which there is currently no cure. It can be caused by breathing in as little as one fibre of asbestos.


Caused by exposure to large amounts of asbestos, Asbestosis causes heavy coughing and wheezing as the ability to supply oxygen is impaired.

Lung Cancer

Asbestos exposure can cause cancerous tumours to develop in the lungs, resulting in coughing, phlegm and loss of appetite.

Pleural Thickening

Dust trapped in the lining of the lungs (the pleura) can cause it to thicken, creating a tightening of the chest and difficulty breathing.

Asbestos Claims & Asbestosis Compensation Claims

Those who are suffering from asbestos related diseases may be entitled to make asbestos claims and Asbestos Advice Helpline welcome you to get in touch with us today to discuss your individual circumstances. Statistics show that out of all men over 40 in the UK, 1% of them have been affected by asbestos and asbestos related diseases. Those who are suffering from diseases such as Asbestosis, Mesothelioma and other related diseases are eligible make asbestos claims for asbestos compensation.

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. Simply get in touch with ourselves and we’ll do all of the hard work for you, leaving you to concentrate on your health and spending time with friends and family.
