You normally will have three years to start a court action from the date the injured party becomes aware of the diagnosis. On very rare occasions the limit can be changed, but it is best to start proceedings if you think you or a family member has been injured by the inhalation of asbestos, as soon as possible.
It will then be necessary to investigate the medical issues and obtain evidence to assess and prove the potential value of the claim.
There can be many difficulties with cases that might have “started causing problems” over twenty years ago. In particular, the companies may no longer exist.
Specialist asbestos claims solicitors such as ourselves can find out whether the company, or a responsible successor company, can be found and whether there is any insurance still available.
General damages can be awarded for pain, suffering and the overall loss of quality of life caused by the exposure to asbestos and resulting illness. Specific damages can be awarded to offset the inability to work, medical costs, and ongoing medical treatment.
What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos can be found in many buildings and products and is usually safe if not disturbed.
However, if the asbestos dust and fibres are inhaled they can cause fatal illnesses.
It can take many years, 20 to 30, from the initial exposure to asbestos until symptoms of the diseases become apparent to those suffering.
It is important to talk to your doctor if you have had any past or present jobs with asbestos; have lived with someone who has worked in a job with asbestos risk; you have engaged in DIY or other building situations where you might have been exposed to asbestos or even lived near a building with or that uses asbestos.
