Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what matters in such circumstances.
In the majority of cases, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It must be shown that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
