There are several serious illness that are caused by exposure to asbestos fibres or dust, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung conditions. If a person is diagnosed with any of these conditions, then there could be grounds make a claim for compensation against an employer if it can be established that it was caused by exposure to asbestos fibres or dust resulting from working practices.
Even if you believe you have only sustained minor injuries through exposure to asbestos fibres/dust, it is advisable to pursue a claim as soon as you can as the worst symptoms of these conditions are typically latent for many years (typically 30 to 50 years following exposure).
Asbestos-related work claims can be complex as it has to be established that exposure took place at a specific working location(s). We may need to obtain medical evidence from an appropriate respiratory specialist. Any medical report must be comprehensive and address the causative link between exposure and the presenting condition.
It will also need to be shown that your employer was aware of the risks of exposure at the time and did not take appropriate action.
Typical compensation awards in asbestos-related claims range from £13,000 to £110,000 dependent on the duration and severity of symptoms and the time of onset within the Claimant’s lifetime. In addition to this, there will be an award for any losses or expenses associated to the illness such as care costs, lost earnings, medical expenses and transport costs to medical appointments.
