SECONDARY EXPOSURE TO ASBESTOS
An increasing number of asbestos disease diagnoses involve secondary exposure. Most of these affect sufferers who came into contact with asbestos as a result of laundering asbestos-contaminated clothes or as a result of close proximity to someone wearing asbestos-contaminated clothing.

TRACING YOUR FORMER EMPLOYERS
Asbestos illnesses have a long latency period. This means that, as many years pass between the time of exposure and the time of diagnosis, it can sometimes be difficult tracing the liable employer.
Thompsons are specialists in tracing liable employers. For more information click on a button below.
WORKERS LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED
Asbestos use was so widespread that it is not just heavy industries such as shipbuilding or engineering that have been affected. Joiners, painters, welders and even teachers, prison officers and hospital workers sometimes develop asbestos-related diseases.

ASBESTOS AND SCHOOL CHILDREN
Asbestos was used in almost all UK schools and nurseries built from the 1950s to the 1980s. As a result many people have been affected, including school children.
