Asbestos Claims Bolton: Mesothelioma Compensation
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a building material that was heavily used for insulation up until the 1970s, before it was discovered that inhaling asbestos fibres was harmful. The reason why it took such a long time to make the link between asbestos and mesothelioma is because in many cases the symptoms took a long time to present themselves and in some cases many years after the contact with asbestos ceased.
As a result anyone who suffers from mesothelioma as a result of a third party’s negligence (usually an employer) can make a compensation claim. Those who are most likely to have been in contact with asbestos are the following:
- construction workers
- gas fitters
- shipyard workers
