Asbestosis normally occurs as a result of heavy asbestos exposure over a prolonged period. The disease is a form of fibrosis of the lung. This affects the efficiency of the lungs and the person affected often has symptoms of breathlessness and coughing. This disability generally increases as the person gets older.
Compensation for Asbestosis
Asbestosis claims can be dealt with on a provisional damages basis or on a full and final basis. A provisional award allows the Claimant to come back to Court for additional compensation, should the degree of disability increase significantly. However, it is more common to have these cases dealt with on a provisional basis. Awards for the personal injury aspect of the disease itself vary between £20,000 and £75,000.
