What is Asbestosis?

Asbestosis is defined as lung fibrosis and is caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibres. To assess whether you have asbestosis your consultant will look at clinical features, X-ray appearances and will also analyse your history of heavy asbestos exposure which generally leads to asbestosis. The fact that it takes a long time for the symptons of asbestos to develop is evidenced in the increasing number of claims made for asbestosis. This has increased from over 700 claims in 1991 to more than 1800 in 2004. It is expected that claims will continue to increase as many victims who were heavily exposed to asbestos during the course of their employment develop the condition. Often you will have been exposed as a result of your employment. We will discuss the nature of your exposure and will advise you on your prospects of making a successful claim.

Our Asbestos Legal Expertise

1stClaims select only solicitors that have handled large volumes of asbestos claims. They are legal experts in all that they do, and they use that expertise to ensure you receive the best possible advice for your asbesosis claim. If you want an expert on your side, ask 1stClaims to help you.

All 1stClaims asbestosis and mesothelioma solicitors are:

  • Members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and
  • Members of the Law Society's Personal Injury Panel

What does it mean if a solicitor is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers?

Members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) prove their commitment to the victims of personal injury claims as the organisation is dedicated to improving the service provided to victims of accidents. Recently they have launched a scheme called NO LOGO, NO GO to attract awareness to the expertise of their members.

What expertise does a member of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel have?

If you ask us to help you with your claim, a member of the Personal Injury Panel will oversee the whole of your claim. Again this is another sign of quality. To obtain membership of this panel solicitors must show a high level of expertise in personal injury cases. They are not awarded this membership unless they can demonstrate that:-

  • They have practised as a solicitor for at least three years; and
  • They have helped the victims of a large number of personal injury claims over this period of time; and
  • At least 10 of these cases have reached the stages of a hearing date being set, with at least two involving disputes on the question of liability (ie who was to blame for the accident).

In other words, they have to be experts in dealing with accident claims.
