Asbestos and mesothelioma compensation lawyers near to birmingham

Asbestos and mesothelioma

People who have been exposed to asbestos will be unaware of any damage to their health until they experience symptoms many years later. Asbestos has been linked to many illnesses, some of which are very serious.

As many symptoms generally appear years after the exposure to asbestos it is common for people to make a claim long after their employment has ceased. Asbestos exposure can also occur outside of work for instance from overalls or from neighbouring factories.

If you have an illness resulting from exposure to asbestos at work, you have the right to seek compensation. Asbestos related illness compensation can help provide financially for those with lifelong illnesses. Only accredited injury lawyers specialising in asbestos illnesses are listed on this page.

Diseases caused by exposure to asbestos

  • Asbestosis – a condition affecting the tissue of the lungs, this can cause a shortness of breath and carries an increased risk of developing more serious illnesses
  • Mesothelioma – a form of cancer which can develop in the outer lining of the lungs
  • Lung cancer – where cancerous tumours develop in the lungs
  • Pleural thickening - thickening and hardening of the pleura (the lining surrounding the lungs)

It is strongly recommended that you should consult with two or three accredited injury lawyers before making a decision on who to instruct.
