    Compensation claim in Stony Stratford

    The dangers of asbestos

    Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate mineral that has been used extensively in commercial and industrial settings due to its various desirable physical properties.

    It became increasingly popular with manufacturers and building constructors because of its resistance to fire, heat electrical and chemical damage and the relative affordability. However, researchers began to see a correlation between individuals involved in asbestos mining and early deaths, primarily caused as a result of lung problems.

    Who is at risk?

    It is now clear that asbestos can cause serious damage to the lungs when it is inhaled. Consequently it is now banned in the UK but some houses and buildings constructed before 2000 may still have asbestos present in them.

    If you have been exposed to asbestos and developed an asbestos related disease you might be entitled to make a compensation claim in Stony Stratford.

    The people most at risk to exposure are:
