Asbestos Compensation Claims
Asbestosis is a serious long-term lung condition caused by prolonged exposure to asbestos. An asbestosis is a form of scarring of the lungs caused by a large amount of exposure to asbestos dust. Scarring, also known as fibrosis, makes it difficult for the lungs to work effectively, which can cause mild to severe breathlessness.
Who can make a claim for asbestosis?
- Working in an industry where asbestos was heavily used (including construction, shipbuilding, plumbing, and manufacturing)
- Their working environment (we have helped people make claims following exposure in schools and hospitals)
- A loved one (for instance through washing their partner’s work clothes)
- “Environmental” exposure (such as playing near to an asbestos factory as a child)
