Asbestos Compensation Claims
If you have been recently diagnosed with an asbestos related disease, we can help you to claim compensation.
You can claim if diagnosed with one of the following (Click on the Blue Links)
You should make a claim for asbestos compensation within 3 years of the date of the initial diagnosis. If you are making a claim for someone who has recently passed away, the timescale is still from the date of the initial diagnosis. However, due to the serious nature of asbestos diseases, especially Mesothelioma, there is a certain amount of leeway in this, so it would still be worth contacting us if diagnosed some time ago.
Our asbestos claims service if totally free and you will receive 100% of any compensation awarded.
Our solicitors recover their costs from the companies where the exposure to asbestos took place.
For advice on claiming, please call us on 0800 923 0046 and ask for Kathy Cooke or Warren Miller. We are available 7 days a week.
Please note that you cannot currently claim for pleural plaques in England and Wales, this may change in the near future, so if you wish, we can store your details and contact you if the law changes.
It usually takes at least 20 years from the initial exposure to asbestos until symptoms become apparent.
It is likely that some of the companies you worked for may have ceased trading. It is the insurers of the companies where the exposure to asbestos took place that will pay the asbestos compensation, they may exist even if the companies have dissolved.
There is no limit to the number of companies you can claim against.
If the companies folded decades ago, or you simply don't know where the exposure to asbestos took place, you can make a claim for asbestos compensation from the government. We will provide you with the options available and advise you on the best course of action.
If you were in contact with asbestos in the forces, usually the navy, you cannot claim compensation as the government is exempt from prosection if the asbestos contact was before 1987. However, there are circumstances under you may still claim. Please call us on 0800 923 0046 for more details.
It is also possible to claim for secondary exposure, usually from washing work clothes that are covered in asbestos dust.
