Shortness of Breath

If you suffer from shortness of breath and any other asbestosis symptoms, Roberts Jackson can help you to determine their cause and provide expert legal advice on what you should do next.

Our solicitors are highly experienced in handling compensation claims and providing legal guidance to those whose health has been damaged through no fault of their own. Specialising in industrial and work-related conditions, you can trust our legal team to provide the expert support you deserve.

Contact your local GP

As soon as you start to suffer from shortness of breath or any other breathing problems, we would recommend that you get medical help from your local GP.

The medical professional will be able to diagnose your symptoms and provide the medical attention and treatment you require. They should also be able to cite the cause of your breathing problem, determining whether or not it is asbestos related.

While we suggest that you visit your GP as soon as you find that you’re frequently short of breath, you can also start off by getting in contact with Roberts Jackson. Our legal team will be able to organise a medical assessment on your behalf prior to handling your claim.

Pursue a compensation claim

If you are diagnosed with asbestosis or another work-related respiratory condition such as mesothelioma, asthma or bronchitis, our solicitors can then manage your claim for compensation.

The team will work hard to find out as much as possible about your situation to determine the cause of your shortness of breath and asbestosis, and figure out the level of compensation you deserve. They can then utilise this information as well as their industry experience and rich, up-to-date knowledge of legislation in order to create a strong case against the responsible party.

Our solicitors can also present your claim to the person at fault and negotiate the settlement so you are awarded the payout you need. We can also advise you on government funding or charities available, so that you are surrounded by the support you need at this difficult time.
