Make a claim

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that is often caused by exposure to asbestos and it is sometimes also referred to as ‘asbestos cancer.’

If you have ever worked in the manufacturing, construction or industrial industries then you may have been exposed to asbestos. If you believe that your exposure to asbestos was due to negligent behaviour on the part of your employer or another employee, then you may be able to claim for compensation.

Claiming for Mesothelioma

The symptoms of mesothelioma don’t necessarily appear straight after the initial exposure. Instead, symptoms can take roughly 15 to 40 years to develop after you have been exposed to asbestos. You can claim compensation within three years of your diagnosis. If you are unsure whether you have been affected by asbestos in the workplace, some of the main symptoms of mesothelioma are: 

  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue
  • A persistent cough
  • Swollen fingertips
  • Fever and sweating, particularly common to occur at night
  • Loss of appetite or unexplained weight loss

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma in the past three years, then you should speak to a personal injury solicitor who can assess your case and the validity of your claim. If you have any questions about the legal process, whether it is you or a relative that has recently been diagnosed, our experts are always happy to speak to you and address your concerns.

Amount of Compensation

The amount of compensation awarded for illnesses will be specific to your individual circumstances. Compensation will be awarded to cover the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your condition, as well as the loss of function/amenity that this has caused. For example, if you are unable to enjoy hobbies that you previously loved or are unable to complete certain tasks, then this could be covered under compensation. Compensation will also take into account any financial damages that have occurred. If you have been unable to work due to your condition which has caused a loss in earnings, then compensation could potentially cover this.
