    Best solicitors in Dial Post and exposure to asbestos

    Asbestos was widely used because of its flexibility, low heat conduction, it was practically indestructible and was non-flammable.   It was cheap and a very useful material, but it was dangerous too and if you came into contact with it and contracted one of the asbestos related diseases, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using injury solicitors Dial Post.

    It’s the dust that’s the problem and might mean you need to use the best solicitors in Dial Post

    Asbestos is made up of millions of fibres and it is them escaping into the air as dust that is dangerous. It does not need much movement to make the fibres turn to dust. It was not just the people who were exposed to the dust through their job that had a problem.  They took the dust home with them on their clothes and whole families were affected.

    The awful illnesses and diseases asbestos exposure causes

    There are many asbestos related illnesses and diseases, but the most common ones are:

    • Diffuse pleural thickening
    • Benign asbestos pleural effusions
    • Rounded atelectasis (folded lung)
    • Asbestosis
    • Malignant mesothelioma
    • Asbestos-related lung cancer

    These illnesses can take up to 40 years to manifest themselves, which can make it difficult to pinpoint the source of the exposure.  However, it is still possible to make your asbestos injury claim, even if the employer no longer exists.  Accident Advice Helpline will trace the insurance company that provided their employers liability insurance and take matters from there.

    The related cases are increasing

    Every day new cases of asbestos related diseases are still being reported even though the material was banned in the UK in 1999.  This is a worldwide problem, not one related just to the UK.  Australia, for instance, does not expect the number of reported cases to peak until 2020.
