You can claim compensation for an Asbestos related disease such as Asbestosis, Mesothelioma or Asbestos induced Lung Cancer if you, or a member of your family, developed the Asbestos disease or cancer as a result of being exposed to Asbestos or Asbestos fibres in the workplace.
You can also claim compensation for an Asbestos disease if you were exposed to Asbestos fibres or dust while not at work or in a workplace; for example from exposure to Asbestos fibres on the work clothes of a family member, or if you lived near a factory where Asbestos was regularly used.
Millions of people were exposed to Asbestos at work from the 1930s to the 1970s as its use in the construction, shipbuilding and aircraft industries was widespread. Many employers knew about the dangers of Asbestos but did not adequately protect their employees, employees’ families or local residents from being exposed to Asbestos dust or fibres.
If the employer has gone out of business or is no longer operating, you can still claim Asbestos compensation through the insurance company which provided insurance at the time of the exposure to Asbestos. So it is important that you contact a specialist mesothelioma solicitor as soon as possible as we have access to information and databases not available to the general public to help trace the insurers of businesses, as well as contacts who help to find them.
You can claim compensation if your Asbestos related injuries are relatively minor, as it is possible to reserve the opportunity to get more damages if you develop one of the more serious Asbestos related conditions in later years.
If you think you have a case for compensation, or require further legal advice or assistance, why not call our freephone helpline on 0808 175 8101 or fill in the brief industrial disease claim form.
Our solicitors always treat our clients with compassion and respect. We understand that monetary compensation does not begin to alleviate the distress caused by Asbestos, but we hope to help relieve some of the anxieties resulting from the diagnosis and treatment for those affected.
