    Workplace claims in St Pauls

    Personal Injury Solicitors in St. Paul's

    Asbestosis is a very serious disease that unfortunately many people still suffer from nowadays. At Accident Advice Helpline, we receive many calls from people who want to make workplace claims in St Pauls, including for this terrible condition.

    A very common mistake that people make is to confuse asbestosis with asbestos. Asbestos is the mineral which causes the disease (asbestosis). Exposure to asbestos can also cause many other life threatening diseases.

    Exposure to asbestos and workplace claims in St Pauls

    Asbestos used to be one of the most popular minerals back in the day and it was used for about 54 years before it was finally banned. Despite the fact that asbestos is no longer used in construction and other industries, exposure to it is still possible. Many old buildings and even ships have been built with the help of asbestos and people who work in such places are at risk.

    Apart from this, people who do renovations or any type of repair work can also be accidentally exposed to asbestos. This can happen when replacing old pipes or pulling down an old ceiling for example. Some people think that asbestosis is the only disease that the dangerous mineral causes, but other diseases that can result from exposure to asbestos include pleural plaques, pleural thickening, mesothelioma and even lung cancer.

    Claiming for asbestosis with a workplace claims in St Pauls

    Claiming compensation for asbestosis is possible if it can be proven that you were exposed to asbestos because of somebody else’s negligence. As you probably know, the time period for making a claim is usually 3 years from the date of the accident, but asbestos related diseases are a little different. It may take 30 or more years for asbestosis or another diseases caused by exposure to the mineral to develop.
