Asbestos Related Conditions

How to claim asbestos compensation

Here at Browell Smith & Co, we have helped thousands of victims and their families claim for Asbestos Compensation in the UK.

Thousands of workers have been unknowingly exposed to asbestos, often found in shipyards, railways and factories. The use of asbestos has now been banned for over 20 years, but record numbers of people are still dying from asbestos exposure.

Asbestos is the largest cause of work-related fatalities in the UK, with the deadliest effect in the North East of England. Symptoms typically take years to appear, which can make the claims process challenging for the sufferer and their family.

An asbestos-related diagnosis can be difficult to process, so we understand that making a compensation claim may be the last thing on your mind. We recommend speaking to a solicitor as quickly as possible because there are time constraints for this type of claim.

Normally you have three years to start your asbestos claim from the time you are diagnosed with an asbestos-related condition. In some cases, family members only become aware a loved one has suffered from an asbestos-related illness after their passing, in which case it is possible to claim on their behalf.
