Asbestos claims solicitors - Taylor&Emmet LLP | Sheffield Solicitors

Asbestos-related disease?

Asbestos use since the mid 90s has decreased dramatically as the dangers associated with asbestos became known and its use was restricted.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate that was used as insulation material from the 1920's and as a building material during the 1950's, 60s, 70s and 80s because of its chemical and heat resistant properties. Its use since the mid 90s has decreased dramatically as the dangers associated with asbestos became known and its use was restricted.


According to Health and Safety Executive statistics, 1 in every 100 men born in the 1940s will die of an asbestos-related disease. Many people who develop diseases due to exposure to asbestos may be eligible for compensation. Taylor&Emmet specialist solicitors have in-depth knowledge of this complicated area of the law.
