Anyone who has been diagnosed with this condition could be entitled to claim compensation from the individual or company who exposed them to this hazardous substance.

The symptoms of asbestosis can take from 15 to 30 years to present themselves. At this point it can be difficult to locate the liable company, but the Lawyers at Healys Solicitors Recover can often, when companies are untraceable or have gone bust, ensure redress through the firm’s insurers.
