Asbestosis

Mesothelioma

Unfortunately this asbestos-related illness is common in Northern Ireland. It develops from heavy contact with asbestos, prevalent in many workplaces in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Once diagnosed, you can make a claim, even if a long time has passed since your contact with asbestos.

Symptoms & diagnosis

Mesothelioma is a tumour, normally in the lining of the lungs. Symptoms include shortness of breath, abnormal chest sounds and fingertip clubbing. Diagnosis is usually with a chest x-ray or CT scan and lung tests. The condition can worsen and become very disabling. It is fatal and can appear between 10 and 50 years after asbestos contact. Currently there is no cure.

Pleural Plagues

The law changed in 2011, so that people in Northern Ireland with pleural plagues can claim compensation.
