Industrial Diseases

Asbestos Exposure

Have you ever worked in a workplace where you were exposed to asbestos or asbestos dust or fibres or worked near other people who did? Even your family members may be at risk if they came into contact with you or your work clothes.

Do you have problems with wheezing or shortness of breath or coughing? If so, you may have a claim for Industrial disease.

An exposure to asbestos can lead to conditions such as, pleural thickening, Mesothelioma, Asbestosis and Lung Cancer. These conditions are all different.


People who may have been exposed to asbestos and may not even realise can include any of the following:-

Factory workers
Shipyard workers
Railway workers
Construction workers
Painters and Decorators
Gas Fitters
Women who assembled gas masks during the war

Asbestosis is a progressive disease and you may suffer no symptoms at all for many years. It can take tens of years for symptoms to develop like breathlessness and coughing and many people do not even realise they have this disease even some 20-30 years after its exposure.

Asbestosis is a type of pulmonary fibrosis caused by the asbestos fibres which become lodged in the lungs after being inhaled from the air. This causes the lungs to shrink resulting in breathlessness. This type of condition usually only develops where there has been a substantial amount of inhalation of asbestos dust and normally after a long time after inhalation and often up to 20 - 30 years after the start of exposure.
