Did you know that the condition caused by inhaling asbestos by dust or fibre is very dangerous and can affect your health for the rest of your life?
It is also possible that you were exposed to asbestos because fibres were transferred to you from someone who was working with asbestos.
Asbestos can cause several different types of disease such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
The particular problem with all forms of asbestos is that once the fibres are inhaled, a proportion of them may stay in the lungs for the rest of the individual’s life. These diseases can develop many years after being exposed to asbestos.
If it can be shown that you have breathed in asbestos dust at work without proper protection in the last 30 years, we can assist in pursuing a compensation claim against your employer. We can also assist relatives of anyone who has died of an asbestos related disease.
Even if your employer is no longer in existence, the government can award ‘no fault’ compensation payments for your asbestos claim. We will help you complete the form.
If you think you may be suffering a disease caused by asbestos please make contact as soon as you can. Do not delay in seeking medical and legal advice. Time limits apply so the longer you leave your claim, the more difficult it can be to pursue.
Contact Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors today for a free initial consultation, we will then investigate your claim – keeping you informed at all times and then with your approval arrive at the best possible outcome.
