Pages On: Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos is an extremely hazardous material that can cause devastating damage to the lungs of anyone unlucky and to inhale it. Fortunately, Asbestos is harmless if not disturbed. However, many professionals have been forced to work with Asbestos in roles such as shipbuilding, electricians, and roofers. Where proper training is not provided, or the right personal protective equipment — as it is a heavily regulated industry — then your employer is liable for putting you at risk. Asbestos exposure can result in a myriad of lung diseases, such as Asbestosis and Mesothelioma, both of which are often fatal. If you have suffered from Asbestos exposure, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Making a Claim for Asbestos Related Death

Posted in: Asbestos ExposureEmployer NegligenceIndustrial Deafness and DiseaseMesothelioma

Before being banned in 1999, asbestos was routinely used in many industries. It was a standard insulating material and was used in manufacturing, electronics and boiler making. For this reason, the workers who are most at risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease include construction workers, electricians, builders and those who worked in the shipbuilding industries. Due to the industrial connection, the vast majority of asbestos disease sufferers are male. When materials that contain asbestos are disturbed through demolition, chipping or sawing, tiny fibres of asbestos will move into the air…
