Types of industrial disease
If you have been exposed to asbestos, there are a number of diseases and conditions you may develop as a result. An experienced solicitor in Middleham, such as those who we have working for us at Accident Advice Helpline, can help you to make a claim against the person responsible for your condition.
There are three main types of condition with which our solicitor in Middleham can help:
- Asbestosis – This condition can have a variety of effects on your lungs and respiratory health. The amount of compensation a solicitor in Middleham can win on your behalf will depend on how badly you have been affected by the condition.
- Lung cancer – Unfortunately, due to the nature of this condition and the fact that it is often detected late on in its establishment, conditions such as lung cancer tend to prove fatal. The amount of compensation that a solicitor in Middleham can win on your behalf will depend on the severity of the condition, the prognosis and how painful the symptoms with which you are living are.
- Mesothelioma – This is a specific form of lung cancer caused only by exposure to asbestos, and is exceptionally painful. It is the most severe condition that can be developed, and in the vast majority of cases the only medical option is to provide palliative care.

Your solicitor in Middleham will be able to work out to how much compensation you should be entitled based on the type of condition that you have developed and how you have been affected. Such a condition may reduce your life expectancy, cause significant pain and suffering, and result in financial losses due to inability to work, including having to take early retirement on medical grounds.
