Asbestos-Related Conditions

Thousands of people die or fall seriously ill each year from asbestos-related conditions caused by working in professions where contact with the hazardous material is common. Asbestos was widely used for all sorts of reasons up until the 1980s, despite the fact that its toxicity was documented in the early 1900s, and this has had a devastating effect on workers in a range of industries.

Types of asbestos-related illness

Asbestos contributes to a wide range of respiratory illnesses. Sufferers can live with some of these conditions for years, but others can quickly prove fatal or debilitating.

The most common kinds of asbestos-related conditions include:

  • Asbestosis
  • Mesothelioma
  • Lung cancer
  • Pleural plaques/pleural thickening
  • Occupational Asthma
  • Pneumoconiosis

Here at Your Personal Injury Partner we specialise in claims for industrial diseases including asbestos illness and we will call on medical experts and other professionals to help strengthen your case and improve your chances of securing a payout.

Vulnerable professions

The use of asbestos was phased out in the 1970s and 80s so modern buildings will be asbestos free - but older properties could have asbestos in wall cladding and ceilings, or in roofing or window frames, making those who work in the following professionals particularly vulnerable:

  • Construction and building
  • Painting and decorating
  • Carpet fitting
  • Window cleaning
  • Boiler fitting

Asbestos is also present in the dust which is created by the mining industry and some other manufacturing processes.
