A personal injury lawyer in Richmond-upon-Thames can assist you in making a claim for personal injury compensation
Most manufacturing companies back in the middle of the last century used asbestos extensively, then the realisation of how dangerous it was came to light and in the UK it was banned in 1999. This was unfortunately too late, as even up to today there are effects of asbestos-related conditions being reported.
If you have been diagnosed with a condition caused by asbestos exposure, then you have up to three years from the date of diagnosis in which to make a claim. The reason why we say from the date of diagnosis is because the effects can sometimes not show themselves for up to 40 years.
Asbestos exposure effects
Asbestos becomes dangerous as it is made up of tiny little sharp fibres. If these stay together its safe, but this is not the case. Even the slightest movement turns asbestos to dust, which becomes airborne and is easily inhaled, sitting on the lungs causing untold damage. If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, then a personal injury lawyer in Richmond-upon-Thames will help you to make a claim for compensation.
If you can prove that your disease was caused by the negligence of your employer, then a personal injury lawyer in Richmond-upon-Thames would contact your employer’s insurer to settle the claim. Even if your company no longer exists, we can still make a claim.
Just a few of the asbestos-related problems for which a personal injury lawyer in Richmond-upon-Thames could help you to make a claim include:
- Pleural plaques;
- Asbestos-related lung cancer;
- Rounded atelectasis (folded lung); and
- Diffuse pleural thickening.
