Posted on: August 7th, 2023

An alarming revelation | Asbestos exposure in UK schools claims thousands of lives 🏫

An investigation by the Sunday Times has recently uncovered that 10,000 UK school teachers, pupils, and staff have tragically lost their lives to lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure within school buildings over the past 40 years.

Asbestos, once widely used in construction due to its fire-resistant and insulating properties, has since been banned for several decades due to its association with severe health risks. However, the legacy of past asbestos use continues to haunt us, especially within older school infrastructures.

Asbestos can impact individuals differently, with varying consequences emerging over distinct periods.

If you've experienced asbestos exposure, and have suffered as a result you may be eligible for compensation.
