There are many different types of asbestos related diseases and they each vary in severity. The conditions include Pleural Plaques, Pleural Thickening, Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer and Asbestosis.  Asbestosis is often misused as a term for any asbestos related disease.

If you have developed any asbestos related conditions, and if it can be proven that you were exposed to the asbestos due to someone else’s fault (known in law as negligence) then you may succeed in a personal injury claim for compensation.

If you decide to make this personal injury compensation claim against the government or an independent trust rather than against an individual or company responsible for the injury, the claim may be referred to as a “No-Fault” Payment.

Making a “No-Fault” Personal Injury Compensation Claim

The practice of making “No-Fault” payments has been established in the United Kingdom for many years now and can be traced back to the Workmen’s Compensation Act of 1897.

It is often the best way for a person to make a personal injury compensation claim against a company which has long since gone out of business or when the insurance company responsible cannot be traced, which is sometimes the case in matters relating to asbestos related diseases.
