The UK has the highest incidence of asbestos related conditions in the world, due to its history with the natural mineral and the fact that it was not banned until almost a century after its first major introduction. 

Scotland holds a significant place in the history of asbestos as the mineral was heavily used from around the 1870s right through both World Wars and up until the late 1980s.

Scotland’s industrial heartland was based in the Clydeside of Glasgow where the country’s major shipbuilders were based which included John Brown Shipbuilders, Barclay Curle & Co and Upper Clyde Shipbuilders.

Scotland’s most major affected areas for asbestos related conditions include:

  • Clydebank
  • Glasgow
  • Inverclyde
  • Renfrewshire
  • West Dunbartonshire

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an asbestos related disease, you may be eligible for compensation. With offices across Scotland, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Thurso and Lewick, and over 25 specialists within our Personal Injury team we can offer quick, efficient and expert advice for your to make a claim.
