As the injury solicitors Hanley villagers use from time to time, AAH have been involved in processing injury claims regarding asbestosis for some unfortunate individuals. Mesothelioma is a cancer, which affects the lining of certain internal organs, particularly the lungs, and in most cases it is contracted through exposure to asbestos. The chilling thing about this particular cancer is that symptoms may not develop until 30 or 40 years after the time of exposure. In this particular instance, the usual three-year statute of limitations is lifted.
Fatalities are still high
Although there is much more awareness about asbestos in the construction industry today, the official figures still show that 2,400 people per year are dying from the disease for which there is no cure. There are some non-malignant varieties of asbestos disease, which include pulmonary fibrosis pleural effusion, plural plaques, and pleural thickening.
There is an additional concern, and that is that the risk of asbestos disease may be passed on to other members of the family because a construction worker may have unwittingly brought asbestos contaminated clothing into the home, creating what is known as para-occupational exposure.

Danger from asbestos related disease is a serious one, and one which Accident Advice Helpline, can help with. In terms of claiming financial compensation this would have to take into account any detrimental effect on the earning capability of victims. It’s a complex problem.

Complex compensation calculations
Under normal circumstances, with many other types of injury claims, the HOW MUCH calculator that features on AAH website will give enquirers a valuation within 30 seconds. However, with something with the complexity of asbestos related injuries, this is something that would have to be independently calculated on a case-by-case basis.
