Asbestos is and has been a banned substance in the UK for many years, yet it can still be found in old homes and commercial buildings.
Prolonged, unprotected exposure to asbestos can lead to the onset of a number of illnesses, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, lung cancer and more. These severe illnesses can be the source of constant suffering, and lead the patient to require a lifetime of care.
If you work in the construction sector, you may find yourself having to deal with the extraction of asbestos, especially in older buildings. It is the duty of your employer, legally speaking, to ensure you are aware that you are dealing with this harmful substance, and doing so with the right protective gear and equipment.
If you have developed an asbestos-related illness and believe your employer to be at fault, contact Accident Advice Helpline. For over fourteen years, we’ve handled personal injury clams for illnesses involving asbestos, and have successfully helped many victims receive a substantial payout for their suffering. If you have developed such an illness within the past three years, our workplace injury solicitors in Lewes can help.
Can you make a claim?
To make a successful claim, you should be able to prove that someone else was responsible for your asbestos exposure.
You should be able to provide your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor with as much information as possible to support this, such as pictures or video evidence, copies of witness statements and more.
To get an idea of how much you could be entitled to receive, fill in our 30-second claims calculator online. This tool makes it quick and easy to get an idea of if you’re eligible to make a claim, and if so, how much for.
Many of our claimants have received thousands of pounds, especially in cases involving the onset of a serious illness. Unfortunately, almost every illness caused by asbestos is just that. The side-effects of such diseases can make it difficult to breathe, and cause constant pain and suffering. If you’re living with this because of someone else’s negligence, hold them accountable with our help.
