Could I have been exposed to Asbestos?

Asbestos was widely used during the 20th century until the 1970s. The UK partially banned the use of asbestos in 1985 after the recognition of the health hazards of asbestos dust. Up until that point, asbestos was widely used and can still be found in buildings today. This means a huge range of individuals could have been exposed to the deadly material.

Those who are more likely to have come into contact with asbestos are:

  • Boilermakers
  • Carpenters
  • Electricians
  • Fitters
  • Joiners
  • Plumbers
  • Shipbuilders
  • All of the above’s family members

The illnesses which you can get from asbestos exposure are:

  • Asbestosis
  • Asbestos-related lung cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Pleural Plaques
  • Pleural Thickening

If you work or have worked in any of the above industries, and have any of the above illnesses, it is highly likely you have a claim for asbestos compensation. Our expert panel would urge you to get in touch right away.

 

Is There a Time Limit for Making a Workplace Accident Claim?

Yes. In England and Wales, the law regarding time limits is set out by the Limitation Act 1980. The legislation sets a 3-year statutory time limit for making a personal injury claim for industrial disease compensation.

In the case of asbestos-related illnesses, the 3 year period starts from the moment you were diagnosed with an illness. There are, however, some exceptions to the rule. Our panel members would advise you to get in touch right away to avoid any time issues.

 

How much is My Asbestos Compensation Claim Worth?

Every Asbestos compensation claim differs in terms of severity, the effect it had on the victim, and the liability admitted by the employer. Our panel of dedicated Asbestos Claims solicitors will work with you, going through all of the evidence, to come to an appropriate sum and get you the compensation you deserve.

 

Can my employer sack me if I make an Asbestos claim?

If your asbestos claim is against your current employer, then in theory, no they cannot. If they do sack you as a result of an accident at work claim, then that would be classed as unfair dismissal and you should seek further employment law advice. Our panel would be more than happy to put you in contact with an expert employment solicitor if that were to happen.
