Asbestos exposure and an injury claims lawyer in Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond is a freshwater Scottish Loch, lying on the Highland Boundary Fault. Loch Lomond is a popular leisure destination and is featured in a song.

Fortunately for the residents of the surrounding areas, they are unlikely to become exposed to asbestos, a cheap, flexible and practically indestructible material used in the latter half of the last century in the building, shipbuilding and manufacturing industries among other things.

However, if you were exposed before it was banned in the UK, or have been since, then you should consider using an injury claims lawyer in Loch Lomond to make an industrial illness compensation claim.

40 years on, and asbestos may be the cause of you using an injury claims lawyer in Loch Lomond

Asbestos is made up of millions of small, sharp fibres that become dangerous as dust floating in the air. This dust settles on the lining of the lungs, eventually resulting in an illness or disease.

Construction workers and factory workers were probably exposed more than anyone.  Because it was dust, it got in their clothes, their hair and tools etc., and went home with them to expose their families. Several wives have made successful use of an injury lawyer in Loch Lomond because of contracting an asbestos related disease from their husbands’ job.

Asbestos and the industrial illnesses it can cause

There are many industrial illnesses and diseases related to exposure to asbestos, just a few of them are:

  • Rounded atelectasis (folded lung)
  • Asbestosis
  • Diffuse pleural thickening
  • Benign asbestos pleural effusions
  • Asbestos related lung cancer
  • Malignant mesothelioma

These illnesses can take up to 40 years to develop, and because of this, the three year rule for making a claim is relaxed.  Instead of being three years from exposure, it is three years from the date of diagnosis or when you became aware of the disease.

The peak will be in 2020 say the Australians…

This is not just a UK problem, it is worldwide.  Every day new cases of asbestos related diseases are reported and Australia, for example, does not expect the annual amount of reports to peak until 2020.
