Imagine for a moment you are at work and you are unknowingly exposed to something you have no idea about, and you have no idea it could damage your health. You get on with your life, and then many years later you end up being diagnosed with an illness – possibly a fatal or life-limiting one – that is caused by that previous exposure.
This is the reality of people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestosis – both caused by exposure to asbestos fibres. Asbestos poisoning compensation has been paid out in many cases just like these, to people who inhaled asbestos fibres many years ago and now find out they have been made ill because of it.
A changing life
As you can imagine, this is upsetting and very hard to deal with. You could end up with a shortened lifespan as there is currently no known cure for mesothelioma or similar diseases caused by exposure to asbestos.
This is why many people in this situation think about claiming asbestos poisoning compensation. They consider whether any money they could win might make the remainder of their lives easier to manage and enjoy. After all, if it was not their fault they inhaled the asbestos fibres, it lays open the possibility they could claim compensation successfully.
