Have you been diagnosed with Mesothelioma?
No employee should be put at a heightened risk of developing cancer simply by attending work – but unfortunately, this still can happen.
Although asbestos has been a banned substance in the UK for more than ten years, this harmful mineral can still be found in things like insulation in old buildings. Workers that deal with asbestos over a prolonged period of time run the risk of developing Mesothelioma, a cancer commonly found in the lungs or abdomen. Your employer has a duty to ensure staff have a limited exposure to harmful substances such as asbestos, and that they are wearing the proper safety protection when dealing with it. If they have failed to do this and you’ve developed Mesothelioma, you could very well be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
If you are considering legal action and want the help of injury solicitors Chatton residents should call Accident Advice Helpline today. You can speak to a claims expert to find out if you have a case, how much you could receive in a settlement and get connected to a lawyer to handle your case right over the phone.
Who is responsible?
If you can prove your employer was responsible for your diagnosis, you could hold them liable and potentially receive thousands of pounds in a settlement. If they did not inform you that you were working around asbestos or failed to provide the adequate ventilation or protective gear, this constitutes employer negligence and should not be suffered quietly. After all, if you’ve been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, you’ve suffered enough.
