Who do we act for?
We act for both those who have developed mesothelioma as a result of exposure to asbestos in the workplace and those who have lost a loved one because of a fatal illness caused by workplace conditions.
We also act for those who have developed mesothelioma because of so-called secondary causes – that is, because of exposure to dust or fibres on a loved one's clothing or because of some other environmental cause.
Carpenters and joiners
Throughout the large part of the twentieth century, in addition to working with wood, many carpenters in the UK also used asbestos cement board, insulation, as well as other asbestos-based materials. Drilling and sawing of these products, whether in workshops or onsite, frequently resulted in exposure, which, for some, has had fatal consequences.
Builders and construction workers
Just as with carpenters and joiners, builders and construction workers frequently used asbestos cement, asbestos partition board, asbestos insulation, and other products throughout the course of their daily work. Where exposure to fibres in these products has triggered mesothelioma, mesothelioma compensation may be sought.
Boilermakers and insulators
Because of its effectiveness as an insulating material, for many decades asbestos was used to insulate boilers, with those who made boilers (boilermakers) and those who maintained and insulated them (laggers) the workers who most frequently came into contact with deadly asbestos fibres.
Electricians, plumbers, and pipe fitters
Whether they were working in tandem with laggers or working on other aspects of commercial, residential, or industrial buildings, many electricians of the past fifty years had to cut through asbestos insulation in order to fulfil their roles. Where exposure has resulted in illness, compensation may be sought.
The same is also true for plumbers and pipe fitters. For many for these workers, removing and cutting through asbestos insulation was a routine occurrence.
