Asbestosis is an awful disease, caused by exposure to asbestos. The conditions asbestos exposure could lead to are numerous, and in many cases, deadly. If you have been exposed to asbestos and you’re now suffering with asbestosis you should seriously consider making a claim for compensation for your condition. Take advice from Accident Advice Helpline today.
Conditions asbestos exposure could lead to
There are more than a dozen different diseases that have been linked to asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma and lung cancer are the main ones, but there are others, such as COPD and kidney cancer, that have not been linked directly to asbestos, which medical researchers are beginning to suspect are developed thanks to asbestos exposure either through inhaling or ingesting the fibres.
Asbestosis is actually a benign illness but it leads to more deaths than other more malignant asbestos-related diseases. While not everyone who is exposed to asbestos will develop a related illness of any kind, exposure increases your lifelong risk so it is important to take steps now.
Making a claim for your illness
Given the variety of conditions asbestos exposure could lead to, it is important to make a claim for compensation if you have a case to do so. You will benefit from compensation if you need ongoing treatment for example, or it may be a help to your partner or children.
