Asbestos was thought to be nature's miracle – a substance with heat and flame resistant qualities that was naturally abundant, durable and versatile. Yet, this apparent life-saver became a hidden killer as it silently led to the deaths of countless workers who had inhaled it as a part of their everyday lives.
Sadly, mesothelioma compensation claims are an ongoing tragedy, as more and more people discover that they have been affected by asbestos and, it is no longer just those who worked closely with the material, such as shipyard, construction and transport workers who are being diagnosed with mesothelioma.
As the terrible legacy of asbestos-related disease moves on, so teachers, school-children and even the wives and children of men who came home with asbestos dust on their clothes are all succumbing to its ill-effects.
