What is Asbestosis?
Asbestosis is a lung disease which is caused by breathing in asbestos fibres, with many thousands of people making successful claims for compensation each year. If you develop Asbestosis it can put you under a greater risk of developing lung cancer.
- Asbestos fibres are particles of asbestos that embed into the lungs
- The particles irritate the lungs causing scaring
- Thickening occurs in the lung tissue
- The lungs no longer function properly
- Asbestosis usually only affects people who have had a lot of asbestos exposure over a long period of time.

The dangers of working in and around asbestos dust are well known and have been since around the turn of the 20th Century. Although there are many diseases and conditions that can be caused by asbestos dust and fibres perhaps the most well known is asbestosis.
Asbestosis itself is a condition that affects people in very different ways and it is important to note that not all those diagnosed with the disease face a future of limited mobility and oxygen tanks. Whilst none of us would ever want to be told we have asbestosis and certainly we are not seeking to play down the seriousness of the disease. This is why it is important for you to get in touch with us straight away. Call one of our asbestosis solicitors free on 0800 122 3130 or start your claim online.
