    No win no fee lawyers in Dacorum

    One of the more serious diseases that the asbestos no win no fee lawyers in Dacorum will have to deal with is mesothelioma. It is one of four diseases that could be caused by exposure to asbestos. Unfortunately, the annual number of cases of mesothelioma is rising year on year and the number of phone calls that Accident Advice Helpline receive in relation to this disease are increasing. In fact, it is forecast that Accident Advice Helpline ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers in Dacorum will be dealing with many claims of this type over the coming decade.

    This time lag is introduced because mesothelioma is a disease that takes a long time to develop. A builder who was exposed to asbestos in his mid-twenties may not develop any symptoms of the disease until he is fifty or sixty even though the disease may have been developing for a few years before he noticed any symptoms. Accident Advice Helpline ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers in Dacorum are highly experienced in this complex type of claim.

    ‘No win, no fee’ lawyers in Dacorum – the facts about mesothelioma

    Mesothelioma is one of the diseases that ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers in Dacorum would deal with. It is a very serious disease and people often don’t find out that they have it until the disease is quite advanced. Sadly this means that is almost always fatal. Men suffer from it more often than women and this is because they are more likely to have worked in the construction industry. This sort of job exposes them to airborne fibres. Carpenters, plumbers and electricians seem to be the groups of men most at risk.

    Once the risks from asbestos became apparent, several research studies were conducted to try and find out exactly how the asbestos contaminated the working environment. These studies concluded that a type of insulation board that contained brown asbestos seemed to cause the biggest problems. Brown asbestos is called amosite and it was used widely to provide fire insulation.

    The same studies concluded that women who got the disease were probably exposed to the asbestos at home – perhaps this was via their husband’s work clothes. The greater the total number of asbestos fibres that a person breathes in, the greater the chances of them developing the disease in later life.
