Asbestos is a set of naturally occurring minerals used frequently in commercial situations for their physical attributes. Its strength, resistance to fire, heat, electrical and chemical damage, and affordability made it a very popular material for builders and manufacturers in the late 19th century.
Unfortunately people who are exposed to this mineral can suffer, sometimes severe illness as a result. The most common injury sustained from asbestos is to the lungs however, but it can also affect your abdomen. some of the most severe illness include mesothelioma or lung cancer which can have a devastating affect on you and your family.
If you have contracted an illness due to exposure to asbestos you could be entitled to claim for compensation, which can help to relieve some of the financial stress, which can include:
- Repayment for any lost earnings or future loss of earnings due to time off work
- Payment for private medical treatment to help on the road to a quick recovery
- Repay you for any expenses that you would not have otherwise had to pay, such as the cost of travel to hospital appointments
