    All manufacturing industries in the last century used asbestos. It wasn’t until 1999 when it was completely banned in UK that the full effects of how dangerous it was came to light.

    By the time people realised how dangerous asbestos is, many people had already suffered harm because of it. Even up until today there are still reports of asbestos-related illness coming to light.

    In normal circumstances when it comes to claiming compensation you have 3 years’ from the date the accident occurred but as Asbestos exposure can take up to 40 years to manifest itself, you have normally have 3 years’ from the date of diagnosis to make a claim.
