Asbestos and mesothelioma claims

“Thank you so much for all the time and trouble you have spent on our behalf. We are very grateful.”

Mrs H Portsmouth
Our Personal Injury team has experience in pursuing compensation claims for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma against your employers, even if they are no longer trading.

Exposure to asbestos (usually in an industrial workplace) can lead to mesothelioma, a cancer that affects the external lining of the lungs (pluera), or less commonly the lining of the abdomen (peritoneum) or hear (pericardium).  At present there is no cure for mesothelioma but treatment can ease symptoms and can extend survival. 

Compensation claims for mesothelioma can also be made by the wives of industrial workers, and other family members, who were exposed to asbestos carried on the clothes of their husband, father, or even sons.  Compensation has also been sought for those who have been affected by simply having lived close to factories, and were exposed to asbestos dust which escaped into the atmosphere.

Our specialist Personal Injury team lawyers are experienced in understanding how to investigate such cases, so that we can prove that your mesothelioma was the result of negligence by an employer.  We will advise you if you have a claim and advise and support you and your family throughout the process.

Our compensation claim may pursue financial help with support for the family, including hospice and care costs.
