Asbestos, Mesothelioma Compensation
Unfortunately, there are a large number of individuals who were exposed to asbestos as a result of previous employment or otherwise. Such exposure may mean that you now suffer from one of the many diseases related to asbestos. The most common of these diseases is Mesothelioma, and if you suffer from Mesothelioma (or another asbestos related disease or injury) you should contact a solicitor** in Cardiff who will be able to provide you with detailed information about any potential compensation that you may be entitled to. Although Mesothelioma is one of the less common forms of cancer, the number of suffers being detected is increasing.
What is Asbestos?
Asbestos was commonly used in the building trade until it was banned in 1999, and specific examples of jobs in which individuals may have been exposed to asbestos include welders, builders, carpenters, gas fitters, construction workers and engineers. Mesothelioma sufferers may be able to claim compensation from old employers as it is often argued that these employers understood the risks associated with asbestos but did not put sufficient safeguards in place in order to protect their staff from these risks.
What is Mesothelioma?
Symptoms of Mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure include shortness of breath, wheezing, pain in the chest and weight loss. If you are suffering from such symptoms and you have spoken to a medical expert who has confirmed Mesothelioma (which will usually be after a chest x-ray, a CT scan and a biopsy), it is important that you contact a legal expert in Cardiff who can talk you through the process and documents required in order to assess whether or not you will be entitled to Mesothelioma compensation.
Treatment for Mesothelioma includes radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other surgery and this can improve both quality and duration of life, and it is important that you provide your personal injury solicitor** in Cardiff with details of any current treatments that you have had so far (and their results) when you initially contact them to discuss what levels of Mesothelioma compensation will apply based on their specifics of your situation.
