Best solicitors in Dennistown
Dennistown is a district of the city of Glasgow, Scotland.
Students and young professionals are unlikely to contract an industrial illness or condition. Not like the many workers in construction, shipbuilding and factories that over the years have been exposed to dangerous substances and are now paying the price.
Their employers should have protected them from such exposure and now many years later some of these illnesses are manifesting themselves and the victims should be making personal injury claims. They can get the help they need to make a claim with some of the best solicitors in Dennistown.
Asbestos causes awful diseases and the victims may need the help of the best solicitors in Dennistown
Exposure to asbestos can be dire. It was used extensively in construction and shipbuilding in the second half of the last century. It is a cheap and flexible commodity but also extremely dangerous. It was banned totally in the UK in 1999.
Although it is no longer in use, it is still in many buildings and ships built in that era and if it is found it has to be removed by specialists.
Among other things, it can cause mesothelioma, which is an aggressive form of cancer, almost entirely the fault of exposure to asbestos. It can take up to 40 years, after the contact with asbestos, for the health problems to develop and in the meantime, the employer may have gone out of business. This does not stop you making a claim, as it will be their insurance company that will settle it.
Several years ago, 100,000 miners made claims because of contracting emphysema while working in the coalmines, and they won. The cases were very high profile and did a lot to raise the awareness of victims to the fact they can claim compensation from employers who have been negligent. Unfortunately, many minors had already died from this dreadful disease before they were able to make a claim and in some cases the families made fatal injury claims, but not all did.
