    Injury Claim in Great Yarmouth


    Asbestos was widely used all over the world in the middle of the last century. It was cheap, flexible and practically indestructible, but it was also very dangerous. This was not realised at first, and the construction industry, ship building industry and manufacturers used it extensively, until it was banned in the UK in 1999. Victims of exposure to it are still being reported every week and they have the option of making an industrial injury claim in Great Yarmouth. 

    The effects of asbestos

    Industry workers have been the group most effected by Asbestos as the material was widely used in such industries in previous decades. If it is not moved it is perfectly safe, but the slightest of movements make it give off millions of particles of a very fine dust, which settle in the lungs. The problem is that it also settles in hair, on their skin and on clothes, so it could be taken home and passed onto families as well.

    Just imagine a little lad running down the road to greet his father and getting a big hug from dad, and possibly an asbestos related lung disease as well.

    It was not unusual for a family member to be struck down with an asbestos related disease, and they too were entitled to make a personal injury claim in Great Yarmouth.

    The asbestos related diseases that victims make a personal injury claim in Great Yarmouth for

    There are several diseases that asbestos causes, most of them life threatening. The victims suffering from one of these illnesses might well be too ill to make the compensation claim themselves, and in this situation, a family member should make a claim on their behalf.

    If someone has asbestos related lung cancer, or something similar, it could have taken many years to develop, and because of this there is a slight variation to the three year rule for making claims. The victim has three years from the date of diagnosis to make their claim, and this could mean it is as long as 40 years after the exposure that they receive their compensation.
