Action Mesothelioma Day is an annual event arranged by the British Lung Foundation (BLF) as part of their ongoing campaign to raise awareness of Mesothelioma & to improve the treatment & care of people diagnosed with this Asbestos related disease.

In 2010 the focus of the campaign was raising awareness of Asbestos in homes, and the issues, dangers and responsibilities people have if they uncover Asbestos whilst carrying out DIY themselves, or through hired contractors. As the BLF says ‘Asbestos is not a thing of the past and is still present in many homes today’.

Supporting Action Mesothelioma Day

Slater and Gordon Lawyers' Occupational Disease Group, a nationwide unit set up specifically to assist clients with Mesothelioma Compensation claims, unfortunately deals with numerous clients whose lives and health have been affected by exposure to Asbestos.

Alongside people who were exposed to Asbestos as part of their day to day jobs, we have also helped widows and children bring an Asbestos Compensation Claim on behalf of their loved ones.

Read about how we have helped some Mesothelioma sufferers and their families.

Simon Allen, head of the Occupational Disease Group believes that Action Mesothelioma Day is a great opportunity to raise awareness in the wider public consciousness of the dangers of Asbestos exposure and to campaign for better treatment for those who have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma.

Client Testimonials

One of our specialist Asbestos Solicitors recently received a letter thanking them for their help bringing a Mesothelioma compensation claim for a gentleman:

“I really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kindness, empathy and wonderful support you have given to me over the past year. Having you supporting me in my corner has helped to make the process so much easier. Your way of dealing with such delicate matters has been truly humanistic. I would highly recommend you to anyone who may be unfortunate enough to have to go through a similar experience”.
