    Personal injury claims in Troedyrhiw

    Asbestos was used extensively in the construction industry, shipbuilding and manufacturing in the latter half of the last century because it was cheap, versatile and practically indestructible. It had been in use for some years before it was realised how dangerous it is and it was not banned in the UK until 1999. The problem was that in those intervening years, many workers had been affected by the awful illnesses it causes, and some of them are still feeling its effects today.

    New cases of asbestos-related diseases are still reported every week, and although the exposure took place years ago, the victims are still able to make personal injury claims in Troedyrhiw. This is because with industrial illnesses, the victims have three years from the date of their diagnosis to start their personal injury claims in Troedyrhiw.

    Making personal injury claims in Troedyrhiw for asbestos exposure

    If asbestos is untouched and not moved it will not cause a problem. However, the slightest movement, or something like putting a screw into it, creates asbestos dust. This is a very fine dust that settles on the lungs and cannot be removed. It also settles in the hair and on the clothes of workers, so they very often took this dangerous substance home to their families as well.

    It is not unusual for the wife or children of someone who worked with asbestos to become ill with one of the asbestos-related diseases, and then they can make personal injury claims in Troedyrhiw as well.

    The illnesses asbestos can cause

    Asbestos can sit in the lungs for many years before the victim realises it is there and it is said that anywhere between 20 and 40 years, after the exposure to asbestos, is the sort of time it takes for the disease to show itself. There are numerous asbestos-related diseases, the most common ones are:
