Developed asbestosis? Claim your legal entitlement with injury experts in Welshpool

Asbestosis is a well documented disease that has been attributed to working with asbestos. Unlike most other diseases that are industry related, asbestosis has a very long latency period before symptoms become apparent. In fact, it can be up to 40 years’ following the exposure to asbestos fibres before asbestosis develops. However, regardless of this latency period, if you develop the devastating condition of asbestosis, then you are still legally entitled to make an injury compensation claim for your condition, the difference being that you have up to 3 years after your diagnosis to make your claim with help from injury experts in Welshpool.

What was asbestos used for?

Asbestos was widely used in many different sectors of industry – shipbuilding, insulation, construction, roofing, railroads, dockyards and mining etc. It was used because its properties made it highly suitable for its purpose with high insulating properties, high electrical resistance, versatility and cost effectiveness.

Why is asbestos dangerous?

Asbestos is known now to be hazardous to health if it becomes damaged, broken or removed. Fibres of asbestos may become airborne and become inhaled into the lungs. The fibres of asbestos are hook like and attach themselves to the lining of the lungs; making them impossible to expel. In response to this foreign body in the lung, acid is produced to destroy the fibre and in doing so damages the lung by scarring the tissue causing a lack of function. Its use was banned totally in the UK in 1999.

Which types of asbestos are dangerous?

There are three types of asbestos – white, blue and brown. It was originally thought that some types of asbestos are less harmful to health than others. However, it has now been established that all types of asbestos have the potential to be hazardous to health.  

What are the symptoms of asbestosis?

Asbestosis develops over a long period of time and symptoms may include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Cough
