How can Slater and Gordon help?
If you have just been diagnosed with mesothelioma, we think that it is important that you consult with one of our specialist mesothelioma lawyers as soon as possible. This is so that we can discuss the time when you were in contact with asbestos and to take a proper statement from you. If you wish to make an industrial disease compensation claim our mesothelioma solicitors can handle all aspects of your claim and with our expertise, guide you through not just the compensation process but other processes such as claiming benefits.
Mesothelioma compensation is claimed from the insurers of the company who are at fault for allowing you to come into such contact with asbestos. Often these companies ceased to exist a long time ago but compensation would come from the insurers and we have our own database to help trace them as well as contacts who help to find them. By talking to a Mesothelioma solicitor as soon as possible you will increase your chance of securing compensation. This is because compensation is only paid where there is blame for your industrial disease and we can help fight to prove this.
What you can claim for
Compensation awarded to those suffering from mesothelioma represents different elements. Some of these are:
- The illness itself
- Loss of earnings
- Any items you need to purchase as a result of the disease, from aids around the home to different foods to those usually purchased, to mobility aids.
- An amount to reflect the care provided by those you know, separate from any fees you may have paid to professionals for this
- Any losses to other family members
- Travelling expenses to hospital or medical appointments
Many other items can be claimed for but these are just some examples.
