Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma

Virtually all cases of mesothelioma are linked to asbestos exposure. It is a rare cancer of the linings which cover and protect the body’s organs. Most commonly, mesothelioma occurs in the lungs or abdomen but can also affect the linings of the heart, testicles and ovaries, thoracic and abdominal cavities and surrounding internal organs. Symptoms of mesothelioma include shortness of breath, pain in the lower back or side of the chest, coughing and weight loss. Mesothelioma is the most insidious of the asbestos-related diseases in that it can affect people who have experienced low or intermittent levels of asbestos exposure.

How to claim compensation for Mesothelioma and how long will my claim take?

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and can recall how you came into contact with asbestos you may be eligible to claim compensation from your former employer or their insurers.

As a starting point, it is vital that you instruct specialist mesothelioma compensation solicitors to deal with your claim as this will improve the prospects of you recovering your compensation swiftly. It is important to move quickly on such claims as there are strict time limits for claiming.

Our specialist mesothelioma solicitors will look into the circumstances of your exposure to asbestos and assess whether a claim can be pursued against your employers or any other party directly. Even if the entities no longer trade, you could still claim against their insurers. We have a database of traced insurers which we will consult when advising you on the prospects of succeeding in your mesothelioma compensation claim.

We pride ourselves on recovering mesothelioma compensation quickly and depending on the facts of your case, claims can settle within as short a period as 60 days from opening. Other cases can take longer if there are difficulties in tracing evidence in support of exposure to asbestos but we always deal with all cases on an urgent basis to make as much progress as possible.
