Asbestos was first known to be hazardous to health as early as the 1930’s. In 1965 the Sunday Times ran an article about the “killer dust” and since this time Courts have accepted that the dangers of asbestos are common knowledge.
Despite significant knowledge of the dangers, millions of workers have been exposed to asbestos and unfortunately many will go on to develop diseases caused through this exposure. Asbestos can cause a wide range of diseases. If you believe that you have been exposed to asbestos and are worried about your health, it is very important that you seek advice from your GP and ask for a referral to a Chest Physician if necessary. Explain to your GP why you are worried and your GP should be able to refer you for the necessary tests.
If you are told or believe that you are suffering from an illness or disease caused by exposure to asbestos, please call us for free legal advice or fill in the enquiry form, by clicking on the ‘Start a Claim’ button below. It is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible because like all claims for compensation strict time limits apply.
Generally, you must either settle your case or start a Court case within 3 years of the date that you are either aware or ought to be aware that you are suffering from a work related illness. Most people who have been exposed to asbestos dust will have been exposed in the workplace and often many years ago. It does not matter that the employer that you were working for is no longer in business.
Over the years, we have acted for thousands of workers who have suffered from asbestos related conditions. This includes acting for wives and children who have gone on to develop illness through exposure to dust from their husband’s or parents’ clothing.
