Industrial cancer claims.
Mesothelioma is a cancer related occupational lung disease.
If you have been diagnosed with a disease caused by your job you may be entitled to a payout.
Most cases are caused by exposure to asbestos, an insulating material widely used in UK industry from the 1950s to the mid-1980s.
Workers most at risk are those involved in construction, shipbuilding and lagging. Symptoms can take up to 30 years to appear after exposure.
Asbestosis remains one of the most common work related diseases, it is an illness that can be fatal as those exposed to asbestos are at risk of developing lung cancer.
Asbestosis generally only affects people exposed to a large amount of asbestos over a prolonged period, and includes demolition workers, electricians and plumbers.
Both asbestosis and mesothelioma are caused by overexposure to asbestos, however they are not the only asbestos related diseases. Workers can develop lung cancer, non-malignant pleural disease and pleural thickening.
If you have been exposed to asbestos at work and are now experiencing respiratory problems, seek immediate medical advice.
Due to the slow development in symptoms there may be a lot of legal wrangling before your employer agrees to settle your claim. You are therefore advised to seek specialist legal help to guide you through the claims process.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a work related illness find out about making a claim.
