Nine Year Ban Fails to Eradicate Asbestos Related Diseases
Date:11/27/2008

xposure to the killer substance used extensively in the 1970s.

The risk of asbestos-related diseases is increased significantly for smokers. Related diseases don't tend to appear for many years, often between 25 and 40 years after exposure. Asbestos can cause thickening of the pleura, the membrane which lines the outside of the lung. If the thickening is severe, lung function is restricted causing shortness of breath. It can also cause Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer. Medication can relieve symptoms and improve breathing but there is no cure.

Michael Jeffries of First Personal Injury comments "If your job has exposed you to asbestos and been harmful to your health, you could be entitled to Industrial disease compensation.

Many victims are workers from ordinary backgrounds who have been exposed to asbestos in the course of their occupation, often without any protection or prior warning of the dangers. Something as simple as the repeated removal of old lagging from pipe-work could have provided sufficient exposure to lead to a devastating health problem up to 40 years later.

We can offer free initial advice, and confidentially help victims decide if a claim for compensation is possible. Regrettably we can't undo the damage to victims' health, but we can take legal steps to ensure that family circumstances are appropriately compensated for future needs".
