FAQs
Is there a time limit to make a claim?
Yes. You should seek legal advice promptly upon finding out that you (or a deceased relative) has asbestos related disease.
Will I have to attend a medical assessment?
Yes. You would be examined by a chest physician with years of experience of asbestos disease. If you are too ill to travel to see the doctor, we can arrange for the doctor to see you at home or in hospital.
My employer is defunct, can I still make a claim?
We regularly win compensation against defunct companies. We are usually able to trace either a successor organisation who has taken over the liabilities or an insurer.
