If you have been exposed to asbestos whilst performing your duties under the employment of the Ministry of Defence, then you might be entitled to make a compensation claim with the help of an injury lawyer in Wisbech St Mary.
Asbestos compensation claim
Asbestos is a highly dangerous material that was used in manufacturing, construction and shipbuilding predominantly between the 1950s and 1970s.
It was a very popular substance to use due to its versatility and non-flammable nature. As such it was perfect for use in the fire-proofing and as a result, many military personnel have come into contact with it over the years.
Asbestos is dangerous because it is made up of lots of tiny fibres that, when inhaled, can cause serious damage to the lungs.
