In the UK a Mesothelioma compensation claim can be lodged by anyone affected by the disease which mainly develops in people whose work involves exposure to asbestos.
Asbestos is a mineral which was first mined during the 1800’s and used on a regular basis from the time of the Second World War until the 1970’s in the construction of many buildings.
If you have previously been exposed to asbestos containing material and are suffering with mesothelioma as a consequence, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
In the past many manufacturers and distributors of such materials were aware of the dangers of exposure and chose not to warn the workers, thinking only of their fat profits.
As a result of this neglect, you may be eligible to receive a payment in order to help towards the cost of your treatment and to compensate you for the pain and suffering you are going through.
Mesothelioma symptoms can take up to 60 years after exposure to appear but many cases develop anything from fifteen years after the initial association with asbestos.
Cases of the disease have been on the increase over the last 20 years, and although research on the subject of early testing is ongoing, the disease carries a poor prognosis.
Symptoms experienced by those suffering with the disease are likely to include the following:
• A shortness of breath caused by fluid resting between the chest wall and the lung
• Pain in the chest wall area
• Weight loss
In order to make a mesothelioma compensation claim, start by asking us a question in the box above and submitting details surrounding your case. Our claims experts are experienced in dealing with this type of claim and will be able to provide you with the advice you need in under an hour.
We will need to have full details of the facts in order to put your case together and present your case and you may have to undergo a medical examination to determine the severity of your condition.
An expert opinion to verify that your illness has come about as the result of exposure to asbestos will also be necessary and along with other paperwork will form the basis of your claim.
It is also possible for a relative of someone who has died from the disease to make a Mesothelioma compensation claim.
Each case is looked at on an individual basis and many people are pleasantly surprised by the amount of cash they receive.
