Asbestos Claims

Asbestos Claims and what to do if you wish to claim Asbestos claims have been brought forward at an ever-growing rate for many years in England and Wales since the negative effects of exposure to asbestos became well-known.

Asbestos Illness

Asbestos related illnesses can take many years to develop after exposure to asbestos and in the main are diseases affecting the lungs brought about through inhalation of asbestos fibres which become trapped in the linings of the lungs.

Mesothelium Cancer

Mesothelioma is a cancer associated to asbestos exposure which can develop in various parts of the body but more specifically within the mesothelium which is a membrane lining found within the pleura (thoracic cavity), peritoneum (abdominal cavity), pericardium (heart) and testicles. Mesothelial cells produce a lubricating fluid to provide a slippery, non-adhesive and protective surface.

Thousands of people every year in the UK are met with the news they are suffering from an asbestos-related disease and which in most instances is a direct result of their workplace exposure to asbestos fibres and dust perhaps as long ago as 40 years or more. Sadly the slow progression of an asbestos illness means that most people affected are likely to be those approaching or in their retirement years.

Asbestos Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the UK with 80% of cases caused by smoking. Other risk factors include passive smoking, poor diet, family history of lung cancer and exposure to harmful chemicals including microscopic asbestos fibres which are inhaled into the respiratory system and become lodged in the lungs.

Drives to detecting lung cancer early in Scotland and England

In a bid to enable early diagnoses of lung cancer NHS England recently announced plans to fund and roll out portable CT scanners throughout the country in an effort to provide early intervention and treatment. It is widely recognised that treatment and survival rates can be improved if cancer is detected at a more treatable stage.
