Asbestos Compensation Claim for Laggers
If you or a member of your family worked as a lagger or laggers mate between 1950 and 1990, it is likely that you were exposed to asbestos dust and fibres at work. If you remember handling or mixing asbestos to make an asbestos paste or asbestos cement to lag pipes or boilers, and have since been diagnosed with an asbestos related disease, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. If you have been diagnosed within the last 3 years, contact us and speak with one of our expert asbestos lagger claim solicitors who can advise you on the prospects of your asbestos claim.
Pipe and Boilers Laggers?
Asbestos was used in many industries from the 1950's until its ban in the mid 1990's and none more prevalent than in lagging. Laggers replacing boilers and pipes in both residential and commercial buildings would be exposed to huge doses of asbestos, some examples of which are below;
- cutting dry asbestos and mixing with water to liquid asbestos cement
- removing old boilers from boiler houses lagged with asbestos
- removing old pipes in factories, school and houses lagged in asbestos
- re-lagging boilers and pipes with asbestos
- sweeping asbestos from the boiler house or factory floor
Replacing boilers and pipes
When replacing boilers and pipes, large quantities of asbestos dust and fibres would become airborne which were then inhaled and ingested by laggers and laggers mates, many of which had not been offered any type of breathing equipment so would resort to tying a scarf or handkerchief around their mouths for protection.
Thousands of laggers and laggers mates were exposed to large amounts of asbestos dust by negligent employers and put at risk of developing life threatening asbestos related diseases in later life, including asbestosis and mesothelioma.
