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.

The connection between asbestos and lung diseases, like Mesothelioma, had been known for a long time and although many people were aware of the risks, some employers did not do enough to protect their employees from the dangers of the substance through safety equipment and training.

A group of lawyers have begun a High Court challenge this week in response to the government’s decision to make mesothelioma sufferers pay from their awarded damages, legal and insurance costs. Previously, an exemption had preserved claimants’ rights to reclaim after-event premiums and success fees from the losing party in their case, however the government decided to remove this exemption.

I am very happy with the service that I got from Personal Injury Claims Glasgow. My Insurer referred me to them when I had an accident, as I had no legal cover with my car insurance.
