    Asbestosis Compensation Claims

    MRH Solicitors are experts in asbestos-related disease claims, including asbestosis, and will help ensure you get the full compensation you deserve.

    What is asbestosis?

    Asbestosis is a long-term serious lung condition that develops after exposure to asbestos. The condition is caused by asbestos fibres scarring the lungs and leaves individuals suffering from this condition with life-changing effects.

    If you, or a member of your family, has been diagnosed with asbestosis, you could be entitled to compensation. With over 90 years of combined experience, our solicitors can provide immediate support and legal representation. We’ll handle your case professionally and sympathetically, with an understanding of what you and your family are experiencing.


    What causes asbestosis?

    When disturbed, asbestos releases fibres, which can get attached to a person’s lungs. This can then cause scarring or inflammation which can lead to a number of different diseases, including asbestosis.

    Although the use of asbestos was banned in 1999, many symptoms of asbestos-related diseases can take 20 + years to develop. People who worked in industries such as construction, insulation, factory environments and power stations (specifically in the 1970s and 1980s) were more exposed to asbestos, leaving them more at risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease.

    The effects of asbestosis are debilitating and have a significant effect on your quality of life. That is why our team of specialists will work tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve when you make a claim.

    What are the next steps if I think I have a claim?

    If you suspect you may have asbestosis, you need to contact a doctor immediately. Common symptoms of the disease include:

    • shortness of breath
    • persistent cough
    • wheezing
    • extreme tiredness (fatigue)
    • pain in your chest or shoulder
    • in more advanced cases, clubbed (swollen) fingertips

    If you have been diagnosed with asbestosis, you should contact one of our expert solicitors immediately. We can guide you through the whole claiming process and offer guidance in relation to receiving state benefits which many sufferers of asbestos-related illness are entitled to.
