Asbestos & Mesothelioma

Anyone who has been exposed to asbestos is at risk of developing an asbestos related disease whether your exposure has been at a workplace, in the home, on a site or in a building where the air is contaminated with asbestos fibres or from handling contaminated clothing.

Home » Personal Law » Personal Accident & Injury » Asbestos & Mesothelioma

We are a leading asbestos and mesothelioma law firm, boasting several asbestos experts throughout Lincolnshire and Hull.

Those who have worked in certain industries where the use of asbestos is common place, are generally at more of an increased risk of developing a condition compared to the rest of the population. The disease however is indiscriminate and can affect office workers, teachers and housewives as well as laggers or dock workers. It is important to note that many people who have been exposed to asbestos will not develop any form of asbestos disease at all.

It is very important that you seek legal advice promptly following a diagnosis of any asbestos related  disease diagnosed by your GP, so please contact a member of the team with any enquiries.

FAQs
What is Mesothelioma?
This is a form of cancer which, in the UK, is mainly caused as a result of asbestos exposure.
What compensation am I entitled to?
Compensation is not payable in England and Wales for pleural plaques. However, compensation can be paid for other asbestos conditions such as pleural thickening, asbestosis, mesothelioma and asbestos related lung cancer.
Will I have to go to court?
This is unlikely but it is possible. Most of our claims settle outside of the court room. If you did have to attend court, then we would discuss with you what would be involved.
How much will I have to pay?
If you have a condition which is compensatable in the courts, then we will not have to ask you to pay anything. Your legal costs would be paid by the other side if you win your claim. If you lose your claim, you pay nothing.
