Global Asbestos Awareness 2021

Global Asbestos Awareness Week 2021 aims to draw attention to the fact that this year, thousands of people will die from occupational exposure to asbestos.

For many years, we have known that asbestos is a human carcinogen. There is NO safe level of exposure. Prevention is the ONLY cure.

Did you know it can take as long as 50 years for asbestos related diseases to develop?

That means that someone who may have been exposed to asbestos in a job they did as a youngster, or that their spouse/partner did, could be a grandparent by the time they developed the disease.

For this reason, it can be difficult to track down where you were exposed to the deadly fibres.

How we can help

Our legal experts specialise in asbestos related disease claims and act for those suffering from a range of diseases, including asbestosis, mesothelioma, pleural thickening, and lung cancer.

We’re not just here to handle your compensation claim,  we can put you in touch with agencies that will help with benefit entitlements, support or nursing care.
