Asbestos related diseases
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma you have probably
been advised by your Chest Physician or Oncologist to seek legal advice.
This is because you have the right to make a claim for compensation against those
responsible for your illness.
We are specialist mesothelioma solicitors who understand that being
diagnosed with mesothelioma or indeed any asbestos related disease can leave you
feeling angry, upset and worried for your future.
Mesothelioma - your right to compensation
Our solicitors will give you clear practical legal advice about
your right to compensation.
One of our specially trained Mesothelioma Team will discuss your compensation claim
with you in a confidential and sensitive manner and provide free, no obligation
help and advice, including your right to state benefits and the Dust Fund payment.

Chemical Manufacturing worker exposed to asbestos insulation
Mr G was exposed to asbestos whilst employed by a large chemical manufacturing company
in the mid-1960s to 1970s. He was exposed to asbestos as a consequence of works
being carried out by fitters/laggers who were removing and replacing asbestos insulation
from pipe work.
41 years later, Mr G started to experience pains in the side of his chest. His GP
referred him to a chest physician and following a chest x-ray and CT scan, Mr G
was diagnosed with mesothelioma.
Mr G instructed us so we were able to trace the insurance company for his former
employers (since gone into liquidation). We then swiftly obtained an admission of
liability from the insurance company despite their being limited information on
which to act.
Our lawyers issued court proceedings under a fast track procedure and successfully
secured over £65,000 in compensation for Mr G.
