Asbestosis Compensation Claims

Asbestosis is a lung disease caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibres that go on to penetrate the lungs. 

It is a chronic inflammatory disease which scars the lungs and tissues.

Victims of asbestosis will often experience symptoms of severe shortness of breath especially with physical activity. 

Quality of life is likely to be reduced if you have been diagnosed with asbestosis and you are also more likely to be susceptible to other diseases, such as asbestos related lung cancer or mesothelioma. 

If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation to cover your pain and suffering, care expenses and loss of earnings or pension, to name but a few.  

If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with asbestosis, you may be entitled to compensation.
