Lung cancer and asbestos guide to compensation
Asbestosis is a progressive disease, although the rate at which it develops can vary greatly. If you have asbestosis it is likely that you suffer from breathlessness which in some cases can be very severe. If you suffer from pleural thickening you may also experience varying degrees of breathlessness.
As there is a period of at least 10 years from being exposed to asbestos and developing either asbestosis or pleural thickening, if you have been diagnosed with either of these conditions it is likely that you were exposed to asbestos a number of years ago. Both conditions can result from exposure to blue, brown or white asbestos.
Our highly qualified team of asbestos disease law experts can help assess whether or not you are eligible to bring a claim for compensation.
We can also give you clear and practical advice on the best steps to take to claim any benefits you are entitled to, generating the best possible outcome on your behalf.
