    Central Bedfordshire accident at work compensation

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Central Bedfordshire

    If you’ve acquired an illness through exposure to asbestos and you have a Central Bedfordshire accident at work compensation claim you want to raise, choosing Accident Advice Helpline as the compensation claim specialist you’d like to work with is a very positive decision.

    Asbestos is the single largest cause of work-related fatalities

    Occupational illness related to exposure to asbestos is the largest single cause of fatalities here in the UK, resulting in approximately 4,000 deaths per year. The four main diseases caused by asbestos are as follows:

    • Mesothelioma (always fatal)
    • Lung cancer (which has an extremely high mortality rate)
    • Asbestosis (often fatal, but always debilitating)
    • Diffuse pleural thickening (which is non-fatal)

    We are all exposed to small levels or asbestos fibres the atmosphere

    Here in the UK asbestos fibres are always present in the atmosphere so we are nearly all exposed to very low levels of asbestos. But the key element relating to acquiring an asbestos related illness is the total number of fibres that we inhale.

    The increased risks of asbestos exposure on construction sites

    Working on construction sites, where old asbestos-containing materials are often exposed, is one of the most significant work-related risks. It exposes the victim to levels of asbestos fibres that are several hundred times greater than those present in the environment, hence bringing about the risk of acquiring an asbestos related illness.

    Asbestos related illnesses incubate over several years

    Exposure to high levels of asbestos does not cause immediate illness. The incubation period for asbestos-related diseases can take several years. It is however extremely important to take appropriate precautions if you work in the construction industry, now to avoid illness in years to come.
