    Legal advice for mesothelioma


    Sadly, asbestos was once widely used in industry and construction, but in recent times its harmful effects have become more apparent to individuals who worked with it for years. If you were exposed to asbestos and are now suffering from a related condition, then you may be entitled to make an asbestos claim. You can certainly get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to gain effective legal advice for mesothelioma.

    If you have worked or lived in an environment where you were exposed to asbestos, then you may be entitled to make an asbestos compensation claim due to its dangerous and damaging effects.

    About asbestos

    Here is a little bit more information on asbestos – asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral and its name is derived from a Greek word meaning inextinguishable.  It was mined and used by the Ancient Greeks and the Romans, then became increasingly popular during the 19th century. This was due to its resistance to heat, electricity and chemical damage, and paired with its ability to absorb sound, asbestos was commonly used by the building trade as an additive to cement, by the car industry as brake shoes, and in the engineering industry as a lagging for pipes and boilers. Asbestos was used heavily and most commonly seen after the Second World War in 1945 and was not completely banned from use in the UK until 1999. This was around about the time that the dangerous and life changing effects of asbestos became apparent to the public.

    If you would like legal advice for mesothelioma and support, we’ll need details of exactly where you worked, when you worked there, who for and to see your contract (if you still have it). If you’ve mentioned to your employer that you and your colleagues were at risk of being asbestos poisoned, it’d be great to know when this was and if we could speak to your colleagues, this would also be a huge benefit, although not necessary. Please also let us have details of the date you started feeling the effects of the poisoning and of any medical treatment you’ve sought. If someone else was to blame, we’ll make sure you’re refunded the costs of any treatment, as well as all the other money you receive as part of your injury compensation.
