Exposed but not diagnosed
Please bear in mind that it usually takes 20 years or more for an asbestos related condition to develop and come to light.
Contact us immediately in order that we can make some initial enquiries as to the status of your former employers etc.
Arrange to see your GP.
Explain to your GP about your asbestos exposure and your concerns.
Your GP should refer you to your local hospital for a chest x-ray.
The radiologist will report back to your GP with his findings.
A further appointment with your GP will take place to discuss the findings.
Contact us and let us know the findings.
Should your x-ray reveal an asbestos related condition you may be referred to a consultant at your hospital for further investigations.
We will then assist you in obtaining compensation from your former employer or their insurers and apply for any state benefits you may be entitled to.
“ Thank you to Steven [Evans] for his kindness, patience, efficiency and professionalism throughout this process. I didn’t think my dad would cope well with the requirements but Steven’s calm nature and knowledge made a fairly grim situation much easier to bear. We contacted other solicitors at the start of this process, and their hard-sell approach was dreadful – thank goodness for you and your team! ”
