One of the reasons you may be looking for an injury claims lawyer in Loch Lomond is if you have suffered an industrial illness. Asbestosis is just one such illness, and Accident Advice Helpline have over 15 years of experience in helping people who now have this condition.
If you were exposed to asbestos before it was banned in the UK, you could make an industrial illness compensation claim.
Accident Advice Helpline understand how asbestos can affect you
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 claims lawyer in Loch Lomond because of contracting an asbestos related disease from their husbands’ job.
There are many industrial illnesses and diseases related to exposure to asbestos, just a few of them are:
- Rounded atelectasis (folded lung)
- Diffuse pleural thickening
- Benign asbestos pleural effusions
- 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.
