Our personal injury lawyers are experienced in handling all compensation claims relating to asbestos.

We have substantial experience in all areas of occupational asbestos exposure and have helped many people suffering from asbestos related illnesses (and their families) to claim compensation.

There are different types of asbestos related disease.  Conditions include:

  • pleural plaque (currently not compensatable in England and Wales)
  • pleural thickening
  • lung cancer
  • mesothelioma
  • asbestosis

If you have received a diagnosis of one of these conditions within the last three years then please contact us immediately for expert free advice.

Plymouth has been identified by the Health & Safety Executive as a particular hot spot for asbestos related deaths.  These high rates are likely to be attributable to use of asbestos materials within the dockyard.  Our personal injury team have acquired essential local knowledge relating to these cases which make them very well placed to advise any dockyard workers, whether locally or nationally, who believe they may have been exposed to asbestos.

Our expertise not only relates to dockyard workers but covers cases of asbestos exposure from employment in a wide range of occupations including, plumbers, scaffolders, electricians and building contractors.

You can also claim compensation for an asbestos related disease even if you were not exposed during employment.  For example, if you were exposed to asbestos fibres by cleaning the clothes of a family member or if you lived near a factory where asbestos was regularly used.

As well as pursuing compensation claims in the UK against the employers responsible for the asbestos exposure, we have also been able to assist many clients to pursue secondary compensation claims in the United States against the actual manufacturers of the asbestos materials that were used dating as far back as the 1940s and 1950s. If you have recently settled an asbestos compensation claim in the UK, your solicitors may not have advised you about the possibility of pursuing a secondary compensation claim against these manufacturers.

For free advice on any asbestos compensation claims, whether you are the sufferer, a close family member or recently bereaved, please contact our expert lawyers for free and compassionate advice.

If you believe that you are entitled to a compensation claim then please contact Simon, James (Jim) or James for free confidential advice on 01752 668246, or if you prefer simply click here to arrange your free initial compensation claim meeting.
