Once seen as a wonder building material, we now know asbestos is incredibly harmful. Working close to asbestos without the right protection can lead to life-shortening illnesses like asbestosis, asbestos-induced lung cancer, mesothelioma and pleural plaques. If you or one of your family has an asbestos-related disease, then you may be able to claim compensation.
What is a Mesothelioma Related Illness Claim?
Mesothelioma is an aggressive type of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos fibres. Symptoms include shortness of breath, chest pain, coughing, weight loss and loss of appetite. It can even develop from limited exposure to asbestos.
You may be able to claim for an asbestos-related illness if you believe your employer failed in their duty of care. For example, if they let you work without the correct safety equipment, or they did not inform you when you were working with Asbestos.
Making Compensation Claims for Mesothelioma
Because asbestos-related illness can take years to show, some victims are not aware they may be able to make a claim or may think it is too late. Talking to The Compensation Experts can help clarify your situation.
We work with a group of select legal firms who specialise in the law surrounding mesothelioma. Whether you are claiming for yourself or a loved one, you can expect your solicitor to gather evidence to prove the illness could have been avoided if the right precautions were taken. Millions of British workers were exposed to asbestos up to the early 1980s, and while many employers were aware of the risks associated with it, they did not educate or protect their staff. This led to tragic consequences for staff and their families.
We appreciate that our clients may be unwilling or unable to pay legal fees so we offer a No win, no fee (*Conditions may apply. Please see details at the bottom of the page) contract to remove the financial risk associated with claiming compensation. *conditions may apply

Am I eligible?
If you have been harmed physically in the last 3 years, due to someone else’s negligence, the short answer is yes.
Exceptions to this are for instance industrial disease or if you were a child at the time of the accident. In these cases you may have a longer period to claim.
How much could I claim?
As every injury is different, the amount of compensation paid out can also differ case to case. Varying factors lead to the final figure. These include: extent of your injuries, loss of earnings, future losses and more.
Our dedicated team of experts will give you an indication of how much you could potentially claim for.
How does the process work?
We understand that when making a claim it’s important to know what to expect and when to expect it. That’s why we make the process as transparent & clear as possible.
Your solicitor will gather all the evidence. They will then notify the negligent party that you wish to begin claim proceedings. With your solicitor negotiating on your behalf, you will be up to date every step of the way.
