Claim Arbroath accident at work compensation for an asbestos-related condition
If you work around asbestos, you may be at risk of developing a number of serious illnesses as a result.
Asbestos is a harmful mineral. So dangerous that it has been banned from use in any construction in the UK since 1999. Despite this ban, this substance can still be found in old buildings, which means those involved in restoration, DIY and renovation, as well as construction, can be at risk of working around it.
If your job does involve handling asbestos, legally your employer has a responsibility to inform you that it is present, and to provide you with the adequate protective gear to prevent you from inhaling or ingesting it. If they fail to do this, asbestos particles can be deposited into the lining of the lungs, which can cause serious illnesses such as asbestosis and mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer.
If you have become ill after being exposed to asbestos at work, you could be entitled to claim Arbroath accident at work compensation. In order to make a successful claim, you should be able to prove directly that the negligence of an employer caused it. If this is the case, they can be held accountable for this negligence by paying out compensation.
