Asbestosis Compensation Claims

Asbestosis Compensation Claims

Because asbestosis is usually experienced as a result of exposure to asbestos fibres at work, the disease is sometimes known as an 'occupational lung disease'.

Employers owe a duty of care to their employees, in that they must take steps to keep employees safe and healthy at work. This includes notifying employees if they are working with (or near) hazardous substances such as asbestos, and providing the appropriate safety equipment.

Can I claim asbestosis compensation?

If you are wondering whether you are entitled to asbestosis compensation, consider these points:

  • Did your employer warn you about the dangers associated with asbestos?
  • Did your employer implement proper safety measures, such as providing safety equipment like face masks and protective clothing?
  • Were you properly trained in how to use the safety equipment you were given
  • Did your employer make regular checks to ensure that you and your colleagues were working according to agreed health safety procedures?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'no', you may be entitled to claim asbestosis compensation.

How to claim asbestosis compensation

If you think your employer was negligent in allowing you to be exposed to asbestos, either by failing to make you aware of the dangers, or by failing to provide proper safety equipment, you may be able to make a successful asbestosis claim.
