How you can make a compensation claim for asbestos exposure with our personal injury lawyer in Temple
In the past, asbestos was a widely used substance and today it can still be found in many buildings, for example. However, asbestos is very dangerous and even though that was first discovered back in 1899, asbestos was banned much later.
The asbestos mineral was extremely popular in the construction industry back in the mid 20th century. This is mainly because of its resistance to chemical and electrical damage, fire, heat and the sound absorption that it provides. On top of that, asbestos was also very affordable. Because it was used so widely in various industries, many professionals suffer from exposure and some are exposed without even knowing about it. If you suffer the consequences of asbestos exposure, call Accident Advice Helpline to receive help from our personal injury lawyer in Temple and find out whether you can seek compensation or not.

Who is exposed the most?
In the past, asbestos was used in almost any industry including construction, paper mills, steelworks and ship-building to name a few. In some cases, asbestos was even added to protective clothing and paint. However, the people who ran the biggest risk of asbestos exposure were of course the people who mined it.
Nowadays, even though asbestos is not as widely used as it was before, people in the construction industry face the highest risk of exposure. Pulling down a ceiling or exposing pipes in an old building can release dangerous clouds of asbestos which is a known carcinogen. Other people who are at risk are shipyard workers and especially those who maintain old ships.
