Claiming for Mesothelioma

What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a cancer of the mesothelial tissue, commonly associated with asbestos exposure. The cancer is caused by inhaling asbestos fibres which cause tumours to form in the lining of the lungs, abdomen, and heart.

How can I claim for mesothelioma?

For a successful mesothelioma claim you will need a medical report stating your diagnosis, proof of exposure during specific jobs and proof your employer was aware of the risks. Whilst this may sound complicated, our expert team will help you every step of the way.

Many of our clients have contracted mesothelioma from work decades ago. Our expert solicitors will help you investigate your previous employers and find out who has been negligent – regardless of how much time has passed.

When you make a mesothelioma claim, there are several factors to calculate including the impact of the illness on your life, your loss of income and any care costs. If you have become dependent on a loved one or if someone you were financially dependent on has sadly passed from mesothelioma you should be able to claim.

Are there time constraints for a mesothelioma claim?

Whilst you can still make a mesothelioma claim even if the company you worked for no longer exists, you only have three years to make a claim from when you have been diagnosed. If a loved one has sadly passed because of mesothelioma, you have three years to claim following the diagnosis of death.

Time is of the essence. Whilst processing a diagnosis can be extremely stressful, we recommend you contact a solicitor as soon as possible so that you and your family can get the compensation you deserve.

You are strongly urged to seek medical attention as quickly as possible if you believe you are suffering from mesothelioma or any other asbestos related condition.
