Asbestosis Compensation Claims

If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related condition, you should claim for compensation. The inhalation of asbestos dust or fibres can cause Asbestosis, Mesothelioma, Pleural Thickening and Lung Cancer. It can also cause Pleural Plaques, but no compensation is payable in this country for this condition as the Court has decided that it does not produce any actual symptoms.

All types of asbestos can cause disease, but blue and brown asbestos are known to be the most dangerous. White asbestos can however also cause disease.

Those most at risk of developing asbestosis or another related disease include:

  • asbestos manufacturing workers
  • carpenters
  • construction workers
  • laggers
  • electricians
  • painters and decorators
  • plumbers
  • railway workers
  • shipyard workers

The Effects of Asbestosis

Asbestosis causes scarring in the lung tissue, which gradually builds up over a long period of time. The scar tissue affects lung function, causing breathlessness and coughing. As the condition worsens, it can become debilitating.

How Tollers can help with your asbestosis claim?

If you, or a family member, have been diagnosed with asbestosis or pleural thickening, you should claim for compensation. Tollers solicitors are experts in this field, and we can provide clear, jargon-free advice on claims, along with a no-obligation assessment of whether you have reasonable chances of success. If we believe you do, we can help you on a risk-free ‘No Win No Fee’ basis.

We will need a detailed statement explaining when and where you came into contact with asbestos dust or fibres. Success often depends on being able to show the extent of your exposure to asbestos dust and fibres. In some cases it may be necessary to contact former work colleagues for witness statements.

As your exposure to asbestos dust and fibres probably took place many years ago, we will need to track down the relevant employers. Often these companies no longer exist, so we will have to trace and identify their insurers, who are still obliged to compensate you for your condition (asbestosis) and losses.
