Establishing your right to claim
When it comes to making a claim for an asbestos related disease one of the key factors that needs to be established is how knowledgeable your employer was about the risks associated with asbestos.
Initially asbestos was regarded as being a miracle substance and no one was aware of the potential for harm. If you developed an asbestos related disease as a result of exposure during this period of lack of knowledge then an expert solicitor in Hickstead is going to be unlikely to be able to win a claim on your behalf. It is impossible to hold someone accountable for something they could not reasonably have known would cause damage.
Over time various employers became aware that asbestos was causing harm to workers’ health. If you worked for a large employer who was keeping records and tracking trends relating to worker’s health, but did nothing to protect workers from what may have been a potential for harm, then your solicitor in Hickstead may be able to help you make a claim against them.
Ultimately knowledge regarding the dangers of asbestos became public and various laws were passed to regulate the industry and safeguard all workers (and the public) who may be exposed. If you were exposed after this point then you will be able to call upon a solicitor in Hickstead to help you make a claim for compensation.
