Asbestos Compensation

Unfortunately, even minor exposure to asbestos can have devastating and even fatal consequences. Therefore, being exposed to this substance due to someone else’s negligence, you have grounds to make a claim. 

Asbestos is a mineral which was used widely in the UK from the 1930s to the 1970s for its fireproof properties. 

There are three common types: 

  • White asbestos called chrysotile. 
  • Blue asbestos called crocidolite. 
  • Brown asbestos called amosite. 

Asbestos was used in homes, schools and other public places, so it can be challenging to know the extent of your exposure to the substance.
