Proving Asbestos Exposure Liability Relies On Asbestosis Lawyers!

In the UK in 2010, the rising number of asbestosis claim cases had reached over 1,160 while around 2,000 incurable asbestos-related mesothelioma cases continue to be diagnosed every year.

PRLog - Feb. 22, 2012 - GREATER MANCHESTER, U.K. -- In the UK in 2010, the rising number of asbestosis claim cases had reached over 1,160 while around 2,000 incurable asbestos-related mesothelioma cases continue to be diagnosed every year.

Crucial to the successful resolution of a mesothelioma compensation case is the ability for an asbestosis lawyer to produce clear, confirmed medical evidence of the potential as well as actual harmful behaviour of asbestos-related medical conditions impacting upon a patient’s health and prognosis. Every case is unique and an asbestosis lawyer will assess and predict the likelihood of success in a particular case.

The unusually long period of time that elapses between 15  to 50 years  before signs of mesothelioma or asbestosis symptoms  appear can present a challenge to prove an employer’s liability in some mesothelioma claim cases.

An asbestosis lawyer will try to settle out of court to minimise costs, speed up the payment of compensation while a defendant, might seek to avoid negative publicity. An experienced asbestosis lawyer with a long and proven track record will have the necessary legal knowledge and connections to convince reluctant defendants into accepting accountability and thus, avoid a long and uncertain trial process.

However, the issue of asbestos awareness and employer responsibility for workplace exposure to asbestos material and the harm perceived to be caused at the time can be contested, especially after several decades after alleged exposure. It will be therefore, crucial to provide proof which links the extent of the original asbestos exposure in a particular workplace and the subsequent development of asbestos-related disease.

Towards the end of 2011, the ability to make a mesothelioma claim for the presence of pleural plaques (raised fibrous scarring of the lungs) was reinstated, first in Scotland and then in Ireland after a long campaign, which began in 2007. While not harmful in themselves, the presence of pleural plaques is known to be an indication that an individual has been exposed to asbestos and around a half of all those who were exposed will be diagnosed with the fatal mesothelioma cancer.

Company employers of workplaces where asbestos was present on the premises, asbestos manufacturers and installers are not the only parties who may be liable in asbestos claim cases. Company insurers, leasing agents and financial recovery firms can be summoned as well as the landlords, property owners, etc.

While the intention of a claim is to recover financial damages that result from asbestos related illness, there can be an additional financial recovery for the cost of medical bills, lost wages and other associated costs affecting normal quality of life and in some instances, punitive damages for victims and their families are also awarded.
