Compensation for asbestos accident at work

Although not a major issue in modern society, the topic of asbestos within the workplace has been hotly debated for many years. In the last few decades the invaluable properties of asbestos have made it a popular material in the building and construction industry, but the potential dangers of working with such a substance have also come to the light and as a result, asbestos can no longer be used within this industry.

Although asbestos is no longer used in industry, the dangers of contact with asbestos are still being felt to this day and many people are suffering from illnesses that they contracted from contact with asbestos many years ago. If you are suffering from health problems as a result of contact with asbestos in your working environment then you could consider a compensation claim to cover any costs you have incurred. 

What injuries could I sustain from coming into contact with asbestos?

If you have come into contact with asbestos within your working environment within the last few years, or even the last decade, there are a number of potential injuries that you could sustain and these include:

  • Lung cancer
  • Pleural plaques
  • Pleural effusions
  • Asbestosis
  • Mesothelioma
  • Shortening of breath and coughing.

Who could I claim against for asbestos injuries?

If your workplace has been the source of your asbestos injuries then they could be the source for a potential compensation claim. It’s the responsibility of your employer to ensure that you are looked after at all times while you are working there and if they fail to do this then you may consider a claim against them for negligence. You could also claim against them if you feel that they have breached the health and safety regulations and that you have been left with injuries as a result.
