Asbestos in Bristol
Asbestos was a popular building material between the 1950 and mid-1980s, and any building constructed before 2000 may contain asbestos. This means that the risk of asbestos exposure remains significant for carpenters, plumbers, joiners, electricians and various other tradespeople, and with 20 people a week dying from asbestos related conditions, asbestos remains the biggest cause of work-related deaths.
We have helped many people who were exposed to asbestos whilst working for Fibrecrete in Stroud, so if you think you may have been exposed yourself, please get in touch today.
The National Asbestos Helpline is here to offer the practical and legal support that sufferers and their families require to cope with an asbestos related disease. We also provide legal representation through our specialist solicitors to assist with your claim for compensation.
