If you or a family member developed an asbestos-related disease due to exposure to asbestos fibers and dust at work, you may be eligible for compensation. You can claim compensation for being exposed to asbestos dust and fibers at work or at home if you live near a factory where asbestos materials were manufactured or used. You can even claim compensation for anyone who was exposed to the clothing of a family member’s work clothes as particles from clothing can enter the lungs of people they come in contact with. Our experienced lawyers will help you bring an asbestos-related claim under the government’s Workman’s Compensation Act.
The following diseases are caused by exposure to dust and fiber particles that are released into the air by asbestos:
- Lung Cancer
- Pleural Plaques
- Diffuse Pleural Thickening
TheYEC asbestos lawyers will consult with you free of charge to determine whether your claim for compensation will be successful.
There is a common misconception that certain types of asbestos, like white asbestos, is not harmful to humans. This is not the case as all asbestos fibres are dangerous when inhaled and can result in severe diseases.
Asbestos dust and fibres accumulate in the lung tissue causing inflammation and scarring. Repeated exposure increases the risk of developing one of many types of asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, an aggressive form of lung cancer associated with moderate levels of exposure to asbestos for which there is no cure.
There are many different asbestos compensation schemes available. Which one is right for you will depend on the circumstances of the exposure and determine which type of claim should be lodged. It is important that you have professional legal representation regarding a potential asbestos disease compensation claim to ensure that your rights are upheld and that you receive just compensation. Because there are strict time limits that apply, it is important to contact Dial Direct as early as possible for advice on how to proceed, or use the contact form above to get in touch with our advisers.
