Get mesothelioma legal help in the UK
There are numerous mesothelioma sufferers in the United Kingdom and evidence shows many are victims of the disease because of negligence in the workplace and unnecessary exposure to asbestos materials. The UK has a long history of legislation about asbestos exposure and compensation for mesothelioma victims and it is important for those affected to be aware of their legal options.
The use of terms such as ‘developed’, ‘caused’, ‘contracted’ and ‘sustained’ in relation to asbestos exposure and mesothelioma has created many legal complications in the UK. Insurance companies have argued that the so-called “trigger” for the policy was not the exposure to the asbestos fibres, but rather the development of the disease and asbestos-related lung tumours.
What to do if you need mesothelioma legal help
Asbestos was once widely used in both industry and construction-related jobs from the 1930’s to the late 1970’s. Sadly however, in recent years, the harmful effect of asbestos has become apparent. If you have at any point in your life been exposed to asbestos, whether in a working environment or through leisure and you are now suffering from mesothelioma or another asbestos-related illness, then you may be entitled to make an asbestos claim through the Accident Advice Helpline.
