The BBC recently reported on the 260 Royal Marines who have issued legal proceedings against the Ministry of Defence (MOD). The Marines are seeking justice for being knowingly exposed to asbestos during their service. Asbestos exposure is an extremely serious issue that can lead to devastating health complications, including asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.

The claims are that the MOD breached the Human Rights Act by ‘knowingly’ exposing them to the substance. The MOD say that it took the health and safety of troops extremely seriously.

Fortunately, there are legal professionals who are dedicated to helping victims of asbestos exposure seek justice and compensation for their suffering. Steve Evans from WE Solicitors has extensive experience in handling asbestos-related cases and fighting for the rights of those affected by this toxic substance.
