Asbestos Claims in 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 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. 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 an Asbestos claim. Those who are most likely to have been in contact with asbestos are the following:

  • construction workers
  • builders
  • plumbers
  • gas fitters
  • carpenters
  • shipyard workers

Even if you didn’t directly work with asbestos, you could still be affected.
