At George Ide we can help you if you have been exposed to asbestos fibres and have become ill as a result. There are a number of asbestos-related diseases recognised as industrial illnesses and, as such, sufferers are entitled to claim compensation.

Anyone who breathes in disturbed asbestos fibres is at risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease, but today there are strict health and safety regulations in place for those who may come into contact with the deadly material.
However, as some asbestos cancers, such as pleural mesothelioma, can take decades to become apparent after initial exposure many former construction, rail and shipbuilding workers are still presenting with asbestos related cancers.
At George Ide our claim solicitors can help anyone, including wives and family members of workers, who has suffered loss or pain as a result of the contraction of an asbestos-related disease.
We may be able to help you if you are, or have been, employed as any of the following and are now suffering from an asbestos-related disease:
If you have been exposed to asbestos in the course of your employment, or as a result of your partner’s or parent’s employment, The team at George Ide can be on your side to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible, while also helping you to receive a full range of non-legal help and advice on matters such as available therapies and financial assistance.
While we understand fully, that a successful asbestos compensation claim cannot turn back the clock and undo the damage that the deadly substance has done, we believe strongly that those liable for an industrial illness should compensate you so that you know that the future of your loved-ones is financially sound.
