If you have been exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with an asbestos related disease you may be able to make a claim. It is possible to make a claim even if:
- Your exposure to asbestos occurred many decades ago
- You have left the employment where you were exposed
- You were exposed in a number of different places
- Your employer went out of business years ago
- You were self employed
- Your exposure did not occur at work
- You are not sure where or how your exposure occurred
- You are or have been a heavy smoker
- You are living in a different state from that in which you were exposed to asbestos
- You are living in a different country from that in which you were exposed to asbestos
