Asbestosis compensation claims

Asbestos was widely used in Scotland during parts of the twentieth century with people working in sectors such as construction, ship and dock yards often exposed to asbestos over a long period of time.

Although the use of asbestos is now banned in the UK, thousands of workers were exposed to asbestos and people are continuing to be affected today.

Asbestosis is just one of the diseases that can be caused by asbestos exposure which is a scarring of the lungs caused by exposure to asbestos dust, called fibrosis.

If you, or a family member, has developed asbestosis due to asbestos exposure, call us on 0141 352 6215. We are here to help.

What are the symptoms of asbestosis?

Symptoms can include it feeling difficult to breath, breathlessness, persistent coughing and tiredness. 

The symptoms of asbestosis often take many years and in some cases decades to develop so it may be that you have developed symptoms some time after working in a sector which used asbestos.

How much exposure would cause asbestosis?

There is no agreed of known ‘safe’ or ‘acceptable’ level of exposure. However, to develop asbestosis would require a high level of exposure to asbestos dust.

There is a relationship between the amount of asbestos dust someone is exposed to and developing asbestosis. Scarring of the lungs can be caused in other ways so it is possible that if a person has only low-level exposure to asbestos, this may not be the cause of their fibrosis.

Asbestosis compensation

If you have been diagnosed with asbestosis as the result of asbestos exposure, you are entitled to make a claim for asbestosis compensation.

At Digby Brown, we have the experience and expertise to trace companies, even if they are no longer running, and establish liability.

We are passionate about helping people access justice and get them the best level of compensation that we can using our no win no fee funding, Compensate.

We recently won a landmark case for compensation for pleural plaques, by challenging the agreed framework, and gained double the amount of compensation for any pleural plaques claim that has been previously settled.
