Digby Brown work closely with Asbestos Action, an organisation helping people affected by asbestos-related illness, their families and carers.  

Asbestos Action provides emotional, practical and welfare-related advice and campaign to raise awareness of asbestos-related illness.  This type of illness is often associated with traditional heavy industries but is very much one which continues to affect people across Scotland. Recent Scottish Government figures show the number of hospital admissions in Scotland for asbestos related conditions has increased by nearly a third in the past five years.

The organisation have published their Spring 2014 newsletter, which includes an article from Fraser Simpson, Partner and Head of Digby Brown’s Industrial Disease department, on the importance of legal advice and a diagnosis of asbestos-related illness.
