Mesothelioma Compensation Claims

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs and is caused by exposure to asbestos. This is a fatal condition. If you have been diagnosed with this illness, our expert solicitors can help you claim compensation.

Asbestos is a type of mineral that was widely used in construction until it was banned in the UK in 1999. Tiny asbestos fibres get easily stuck in the lungs of people who inhale them, which can lead to damage and scarring. Mesothelioma takes a long time to develop, with the average time being around 20 years after exposure but reaching over 35 years in some cases.

Given the nature of the condition, our team of specialists will work tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve.

What are the symptoms of mesothelioma?

If you suspect you may have mesothelioma, you must contact a doctor immediately. Common symptoms of the disease are:

  • chest pain
  • shortness of breath
  • fatigue (extreme tiredness)
  • a high temperature (fever) and sweating, particularly at night
  • a persistent cough
  • loss of appetite and unexplained weight loss
  • clubbed (swollen) fingertips

What are the next steps if I think I have a claim?

If you have already been diagnosed, it’s in your best interests to contact a solicitor as you may be due significant compensation. You can still make a claim, even if:
  • You’re making a claim against an employer who is no longer trading
  • You were exposed to asbestos decades ago
  • You have Mesothelioma but you’re unsure when you were exposed to asbestos
  • You didn’t work directly with asbestos but lived with someone who did
