Asbestos & Mesothelioma Compensation Claims
Receiving a diagnosis of mesothelioma or another asbestos related illness, such as asbestos related lung cancer, pleural thickening, or asbestosis can be one of the most stressful things that can happened to you and your family.
Once the diagnosis has sunk in thoughts can range from extreme sorrow to anger, and finally to ‘what now?’.
It may be that the exposure to asbestos that led to your condition should have been prevented and if so you could be entitled to compensation. Whilst it cannot mend your health it may assist in providing some financial relief to you and your family.
Sintons team of specialist asbestos solicitors have many years of experience helping sufferers and their families, piece together where and when they were exposed to asbestos and tracing old employers and their insurers, who may not still be trading.
Symptoms typically take 20 – 40 years to develop after the initial exposure to asbestos. Although it can take as little as 10 years, there is no accepted upper limit. This long latency period can make bringing a claim for compensation a very daunting task.
Most people diagnosed with an asbestos related illness have been exposed to asbestos fibres in the workplace although there are a growing number of cases where people have been exposed elsewhere such as at school, through washing their loved ones dusty work overalls or by living in close proximity to an asbestos factory.
