Asbestos Compensation Claims

Asbestos related diseases such as Mesothelioma or Asbestosis often take years to manifest and have a devastating impact on a victim and their family lives.

for no obligation advice on making a claim.

Asbestos Related Diseases

  • Asbestosis is a type of pneumoconiosis defined as lung fibrosis caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibres. Asbestosis can seriously affect normal daily activity and lead to various complications.
  • Mesothelioma is a formally rare form of cancer that affects lungs and the lining of the lower digestive tract. Many cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed at an advanced stage as symptoms are non specific and appear late in the development of the disease. This can manifest between 30 and 40 years post exposure. According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) it's estimated that 85% of all male mesothelioma claims are related to occupational exposures.
  • Asbestos exposure can also cause other diseases such as Asbestos-related lung cancer and non-malignant pleural disease.

Time limits for Asbestos claims

The time limit for mesothelioma compensation claims is either three years from the condition being diagnosed by a medical professional or three years from the death of the victim. This means it's still possible to claim even if exposure occurred many years ago.

Who can I bring an Asbestos claim against?

It is possible to bring a claim for compensation against employers or their insurers for asbestos related conditions, even where employment has ended or the employer is no longer in existence. We are often able to trace the relevant employer's liability insurer and pursue them directly.

If the injured person worked for a company associated with Turner and Newall then there is a special compensation trust setup to handle claims by for employees and their families.

As a last resort claims may also be made from the government using the Pneumoconiosis etc. (Workers Compensation) Act 1979.
