Start Your Claim
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer, which is contracted following the inhalation of asbestos dust and fibres. If you have been exposed to asbestos whilst at work, and have developed this condition as a result, you maybe be able to make a compensation claim.
Based in Huddersfield, Grieves Solicitors specialises in helping sufferers and their families claim the compensation they deserve, enabling them to pay medical bills, rehabilitation costs and compensating them for the pain and suffering caused by the illness.
How is it Contracted?
The contraction of mesothelioma is almost exclusively linked to the inhalation of asbestos dust and fibres. It is therefore a common industrial disease amongst people who come into regular contact with asbestos during their day to day employment; these professions include builders, joiners, car mechanics, plumbers, electricians and other construction-based workers.
There can be extremely long delays between the first inhalation of asbestos dust and the manifestation of noticeable symptoms, sometimes up to 40 years. Therefore, if you have recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma and believe it is the fault of a current or former employer, no matter how much time has passed, get in touch with an experienced industrial disease solicitor as soon as possible to discuss a potential claim.
How much Compensation Will I be Awarded?
If your case is successful, the compensation amount you are awarded will depend upon the severity of your symptoms and the length of time you have suffered from those symptoms. As a general guide, compensation amounts tend to fall between £52,000 and £81,500. With more information about your specific case, the industrial disease solicitors at Grieves Solicitors will be able to provide a more accurate forecast.
