Long Awaited Mesothelioma Scheme Falls Short

APIL, The Association Of Personal Injury Lawyers today confirmed that plans for a support scheme for mesothelioma victims who cannot trace their former employers’ insurers were announced this week.

It is estimated that the £300m scheme, funded by employers’ insurers, will help 3,000 victims during the next 10 years. But it only helps people who were diagnosed on or after 25th July 2012 when the announcement was made. It also does not extend to sufferers of other asbestos-related diseases.
