    Solicitors for asbestos claims


    Asbestos diseases can result from the inhalation of asbestos fibres. While many people inhale asbestos fibres over the course of their lifetime, very few people fall ill from their exposure. Those unfortunate enough to do so may suffer from one of the following diseases and require the professional services of solicitors for asbestos claims:

    Mesothelioma

    Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer that grows in the outer lining of the lungs. It can cause a range of symptoms, including breathlessness, weight loss, tiredness and chest pain.

    Lung cancer

    Unlike mesothelioma, lung cancer is associated with a variety of causes, including exposure to large quantities of asbestos. Lung cancer symptoms include chest pain, breathlessness, recurrent chest infections, coughing up blood and weight loss.

    Asbestosis

    Asbestosis is a progressive lung condition that leads to respiratory disability. The symptoms of asbestosis include chronic coughing, shortness of breath and tiredness.

    Diffuse pleural thickening

    Diffuse pleural thickening develops when areas of the lung thicken as a result of scarring caused by asbestos fibres. While the condition does not usually pose a threat to life, it can cause respiratory disability.

    Pleural plaques

    Pleural plaques are areas of scarring on the lungs. They do not cause respiratory disability.

    Receiving an asbestos disease diagnosis

    Receiving an asbestos disease diagnosis can be a distressing experience. While treatment options may be available to you, there are no known cures for asbestos diseases. Whether or not you decide to undergo treatment, you are likely to require considerable assistance with everyday tasks as your illness progresses. The cost of drafting in professional help may put you at risk of financial problems and it is for this reason that you may wish to consider making a compensation claim with the help of our solicitors for asbestos claims.
