How much compensation will I receive for my asbestosis?

Compensation for the pain, suffering and loss of quality of life associated with diagnosed asbestosis or “general damages” is made in all claims for asbestosis compensation.

Asbestos solicitors make use of historical case decisions and the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines to assist them in valuing a sufferer’s claim for asbestosis compensation. The level of award made depends on a number of factors, including the length and severity of symptoms, the effect on the person’s life as well as the person’s age.

The latest published guidelines suggest that those diagnosed with asbestosis could recover anything between £34,300 to £75,600 for their condition if settling on a full and final basis. In choosing to settle their claim in this way, the sufferer would be unable to claim further compensation in the future if their situation deteriorated in the future.

If a sufferer decided to settle their claim on a provisional damages basis, this would leave the door open for an asbestosis sufferer to claim further compensation if their asbestosis deteriorated or if they developed other asbestos related problems such as asbestos related lung cancer or mesothelioma. Such provisional awards of compensation are usually lower than awards made in full and final settlement cases but are often advisable as sufferers do then have the peace of mind of knowing that they will be able to return to claim further asbestos disease compensation, if the need ever arises.
