What is Asbestosis?

Asbestosis is a disease caused by the inhalation of asbestos particles, which then cause aggravation and inflammation to the lung.

The immune system tries to work against the fibres but cannot digest them this leads to the body’s immune cells forming a mass in the lungs, leading to reduced air transfer from the lungs to the blood and subsequently reducing lung capacity.

In time this can lead to a heart attack or can become cancerous.

Occupational Hazard

Certain occupations such as miners, garage workers, plumbers and builders are more likely to come into contact with asbestosis due to the nature of their job. Asbestosis is therefore often referred to as an occupational lung disease.

Because you might contract asbestosis due to your profession, if you can prove that your employer was at fault when you were working with asbestos then you may have a good case for an asbestosis compensation claim.

If this is the case then we can help you make a no win no fee compensation claim.
