If you have been diagnosed with the lung disease asbestosis after prolonged or heavy exposure to asbestos during your employment, our asbestos disease specialists will support you in investigating your compensation claim against your former employer.
What is asbestosis?
Asbestosis is a condition affecting trade union members employed in the construction, manufacturing and ship building industries and we have helped thousands of people diagnosed with this asbestos-related disease to secure compensation.
The symptoms of asbestosis include chest pain, shortness of breath, coughs and tightness around the chest, all caused by the scarring and thickening of the lung tissue over time following long-term exposure to asbestos.
If you have any of the symptoms listed above, you should seek advice from your GP. If you have already received an asbestosis diagnosis, contact us for advice on starting a claim via your trade union legal service.
