What is mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer, solely caused by asbestos.
Asbestos is a harmful material used in insulation, now banned in the UK. When breathed in, the asbestos fibres deposit in the lining of the lungs and abdominal wall, causing mesothelial cancerous cells to develop over time.
Once this mutation has occurred, a victim can be left no alternative than to live with this deadly cancer. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you could be entitled to Newton Mearns accident at work compensation if you believe your employer to be at fault. If they have neglected to provide you with adequate protective gear or even to inform you that you are handling this substance, they could be liable for the onset of your disease and held responsible for paying compensation.
Could you make a claim for mesothelioma?
A complete ban of asbestos being used in any material, building-related or otherwise, came into effect in the UK in 1999.
However, it is often found in older buildings, meaning workers in construction or renovation industries may come into contact with it. Your employer is responsible for providing you with the correct personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as sufficient training so that you may handle this substance safely.
