Asbestos-related diseases can be minor, or they can be severe with life-long symptoms; there are in fact several different types of asbestos disease, with each one varying in severity. If you are suffering from such a disease, then you could eligible for compensation.
Asbestos compensation is available to newly diagnosed sufferers and those with historic illnesses linked to asbestos poisoning and exposure. If it can be proven that your disease or illness was caused by exposure to asbestos, and there is a negligent party such as a former employer, then it may be possible to make a claim. Your ability to do so depends largely on the other side’s current insurance and their insurance at the time of your exposure. If the other side was or is insured, then you can put in a claim with their insurance company.
