Asbestos Related Disease Claim

What else you might like to know about Asbestos Related Disease Claim

If you believe you deserve compensation for an asbestos-related disease contracted in the workplace, a legal service provider can begin legal proceedings on your behalf. Here is some basic advice and guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.

What is an asbestos related disease?

Asbestos is a material that was widely used in construction for many years. The fibres released when asbestos is disturbed can cause serious damage once they are inhaled. The main asbestos related diseases are mesothelioma, asbestosis, asbestos-related lung cancer and pleural thickening.

What are the symptoms of an asbestos related disease?

The symptoms may include shortness of breath, a persistent cough, wheezing and chest pain. If you think that you have similar symptoms which could have been caused by exposure to asbestos, it is important to contact a legal service provider for expert advice.

How long do I have to make a claim?

A no win no fee claim should be brought within three years of the date you were told that you had an asbestos related disease. It is important to contact a legal service provider at the earliest point in order to get expert advice on making a claim.

How much compensation could I receive?

This commonly asked question varies from case to case and it is not always possible to provide an accurate estimate until all of the information relating to a case is gathered. Once you have selected your preferred legal service provider, however, they may be able to give you an estimate based on the compensation typically awarded for similar cases.

How do I choose the best legal services provider?

There are a number of factors you may wish to consider when making your decision. It is important to choose a provider with expertise in asbestos related disease claims. Reputation, location and the size of business may also be relevant factors to you when making a decision.

  • A very good site. It brought up several different quotes for my service which I was able to compare and I'm very satisfied with the provider I've chosen.

  • The site was well laid out and everything was easy to understand. Through The Law Superstore I found a great solicitor who has expert knowledge about the field I needed. I did look at other sites in my search for a solicitor, but The Law Superstore was the only site that didn't want payment upfront.

  • The website was really really good, I found it very easy to use and find the service I needed. It has been designed to look extremely professional and I really think it is a fantastic idea. I’ve actually got the website saved so if I do have the need for a legal service provider in the future I know where to go.
