Asbestos exposure  one of the most common areas that we act for clients regarding is asbestos exposure -related illnesses.

This is an area where we have seen a huge increase in the number of enquiries that we are getting.

Asbestos-related claims usually relate to exposure to asbestos that happened 30 or 40 years ago, when asbestos was

very, very common and indeed was used in most new building projects in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Occupations, where

we are finding a lot of our clients use to work in, are laggers where they would use asbestos

to lag pipes, also carpenters who would cut asbestos board and perhaps use if for building soffits in newly

built houses or partitioning in airing cupboards in newly built houses or else use it for partitioning industrial

buildings. Also, asbestos corrugated roofing was very common and we find clients who would be cutting asbestos

roofing using hand tools and hand saws. The most common asbestos illnesses that we are encountering are

asbestosis which is cumulative-that means that more you work with asbestos the more likely you are to develop

the illness. Also, bilateral pleural thickening that again is cumulative and the more you work with asbestos more

likely you are to be suffering from that particular illness but the asbestos cancers including mesothelioma which is

the cancer of the lining of the lung can be caused only by inhalation of a single asbestos fibre.

That means that it is only necessary to trace one employer for whom somebody worked in order to succeed

in obtaining compensation for that client.

We are experts in tracing Companies who used asbestos and whose employees worked with asbestos many

years ago and where necessary their Insurers.
