Asbestos Exposure

Traditionally asbestos was used in the building, chemical, steel and shipbuilding industries. For those working in such sectors this meant exposure was rife. Over time health experts discovered high risks attached to ingestion and/or the inhalation of fibres. Having determined these detrimental effects, the UK banned asbestos use as of 1999. If you feel you may have been in close proximity to asbestos and are suffering as a result, our trained expert solicitors will help.

When left undisturbed, asbestos proves absolutely no threat. Builders and painters and decorators however may have been required to move this dangerous material in order to carry out important work. In this instance, due to its disturbance, asbestos becomes a health hazard. Unfortunately, long term exposure holds the potential to cause the following diseases:

Asbestos Claims Process

The above diseases are nasty and cause unwanted suffering. Watson Woodhouse are here to help you make a claim for compensation and we’ll do this with care and consideration. Depending on the gravity of your illness you could receive anywhere between £1,000 and £500,000. Whilst we can’t take away your illness, we can help make life easier from a financial perspective.

An initial consultation will determine if you have the grounds to make a claim. From here we will gather all necessary information with which to progress on your behalf.
