Time limits on making a claim

For people suffering as a result of asbestos exposure there is usually no problem in bringing a claim, even though the exposure occurred a long time ago.

This is because the court will allow you to start a claim three years after a person “knew or ought to have known” that they have suffered an injury. For many people this date is normally when they receive a formal diagnosis of an asbestos related disease such as asbestosis, pleural thickening or mesothelioma. The time limit may also start to run again upon the death of an asbestos related disease sufferer.

If you have been diagnosed as having pleural plaques (discrete areas of calcification caused by asbestos fibres) you may have longer than the usual three year period in which to start your claim so please contact us on 0800 884 0718 or email advice@industrialdisedaselawyers.co.uk, regardless of when you were diagnosed.
