What to do when claiming Bournemouth compensation for asbestos exposure
In the old days, asbestos was seen as a magic mineral. Millions of tons were used which created a very successful and profitable industry. Even when this same industry realised the health problems that asbestos causes, it continued to mine and manufacture it. Asbestos was widely used in the construction and shipbuilding industries.
Unfortunately, asbestos was also used for much more than that. It was used for manufacturing fireproof curtains and tablecloths as well as clothing and shields for firefighters. The number of people exposed to asbestos included those who lived in houses where it was used, making millions of people potential victims. Many people are exposed to this day and claiming Bournemouth compensation for that kind of exposure is still very common.
Why should I claim Bournemouth compensation?
Bournemouth is a very big coastal resort town located near the Jurassic Coast in England. The town’s population reached 188,000 people in 2011, but Bournemouth is also visited by a large number of tourists and foreign students every year.

The dangers of asbestos exposure
Asbestos exposure is still a very real threat. People who live in buildings that were built before the 1960’s are at risk of being exposed to asbestos and most of them don’t even know about it. People who work around old ships or repair them are also at risk as are people who repair old houses. Unfortunately, serious asbestos exposure can be deadly.
There are many conditions that exposure to this mineral can cause. One of them is named asbestosis; Asbestosis is a very dangerous long-term chronic condition. Apart from that, one of the most dangerous diseases that asbestos exposure can cause is lung cancer. A type of lung cancer that is usually caused by long exposure to asbestos is called mesothelioma. If you suffer any one of these conditions or another disease caused by asbestos exposure, you should know that you will be eligible to make a Bournemouth compensation claim.
