Asbestos related illness

At Norman Jones we specialise in clients suffering from asbestos related diseases including pleural thickening asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer.
Pleural thickening is scarring of the lung caused by asbestos exposure which can restrict breathing (expansion of the lungs). Symptoms of pleural thickening are both pain in the chest along with shortness of breath.

Asbestosis is a form of lung fibrosis which is caused as a result of long term heavy exposure to asbestos. Sufferers will experience shortness of breath, pain, discomfort, and other debilitating symptoms.

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer affecting the lungs (and less commonly the peritoneum or the lining of the abdominal cavity). The only known cause of mesothelioma is asbestos exposure. The most common sufferers of mesothelioma have contracted the illness as a result of work-related exposure.

Lung cancer (certain forms) can be caused by exposure to asbestos if there has been high levels of asbestos exposure.

If you or a relative are suffering from one of the asbestos related conditions or if a relative has died as a result of mesothelioma it may be possible to bring a claim against the former employer or their insurance company
