Claiming for Asbestosis

Asbestosis is a chronic lung condition caused by prolonged and/or heavy exposure to asbestos dust.

The amount of any compensation award will depend on the level of disability caused by your asbestosis condition.

Asbestosis is a divisible injury because the more exposure you have, the worse the condition becomes. It is essential therefore to identify and trace each employer (or their insurer) who negligently exposed you to asbestos fibres as they are responsible for compensating you for that exposure. This is different to mesothelioma claims where you can recover all your compensation from only one negligent employer even though you may have been exposed by many.

It is therefore important to trace all your old employers and/or their insurers. Sintons team of specialist asbestos solicitors have extensive local and national industry knowledge with many years of experience tracing defunct companies, old employers and their insurers. They will happily guide you through the process of making a claim based on your unique set of circumstances.

Thankfully fewer people are now being diagnosed with asbestosis. This is thought to be due to the marked decline over the years of heavy use of asbestos containing products and processes which were commonplace amongst the shipping, manufacturing and construction industries in the UK throughout much of the twentieth century.
