What is an Asbestos Disease?

Asbestos-related diseases affect thousands of individuals and their families each year.

There are several different types of asbestos-related disease, with each condition varying in severity. We specialise in a range of asbestos disease claims including pleural thickeningmesotheliomalung cancer and asbestosis.

Asbestos diseases are caused by the inhalation of asbestos dust and can take decades to develop. Symptoms, treatment and a patient’s prognosis can vary according to the type of asbestos disease a person is suffering from.
