Mesothelioma is the cancer virtually always caused by earlier exposure to asbestos (some 15 - 40 years ago). It can be caused by pretty small doses of asbestos and so an idea of your contact with it is a good start. But even if you can't remember it is still important for you to seek legal advice from us straight away. Some people prefer a spouse or family member to speak on your behalf and this is quite common.

How can we help?

If you have just been diagnosed with mesothelioma, we think that it is important for one of our specialist mesothelioma solicitors to come out and see you where ever it is convenient and as soon as possible. This is so that we can discuss the time when you were in contact with asbestos and to take a proper statement from you. If you wish to make an industrial disease compensation claim a Fentons mesothelioma solicitor will be able to handle all aspects of your claim and with our expertise, guide you through not just the compensation process but other processes such as claiming benefits.

We understand that clients have individual needs and by visiting you in your home or somewhere convenient to you we can understand your needs from the start. Because of the serious nature of these cases, your industrial disease claim will have priority and our specialist mesothelioma solicitors will explain to you the special rules of these compensation claims, which are intended to help you.

Mesothelioma compensation is claimed from the insurers of the company who are at fault for allowing you to come into such contact with asbestos. Often these companies ceased to exist a long time ago but compensation would come from the insurers and we have our own database to help trace them as well as contacts who help to find them. By talking to a Mesothelioma solicitor as soon as possible you will increase your chance of securing compensation. This is because compensation is only paid where there is blame for your industrial disease and we can help fight to prove this.

What you can claim for

Compensation awarded to those suffering from mesothelioma represents different elements. Some of these are:

  • The illness itself
  • Loss of earnings
  • Any items you need to purchase as a result of the disease, from aids around the home to different foods to those usually purchased, to mobility aids.
  • An amount to reflect the care provided by those you know, separate from any fees you may have paid to professionals for this
  • Any losses to other family members
  • Travelling expenses to hospital or medical appointments

Many other items can be claimed for but these are just some examples.
