If you suffer from an asbestos related illness and were exposed to asbestos through your current or previous employment or have been indirectly affected by the activities of others (e.g. washing a loved one’s overalls), you may be entitled to claim compensation.
Even if your former employer has ceased trading, you may still be able to bring a claim because it is generally the relevant insurance company that pay the compensation.
Furthermore if you have lost a loved one you may be able to recover compensation on their behalf.
The overwhelming majority of cases are concluded without the need for a Court hearing.
However, asbestos claims are often complex and it is vital you obtain the services of a solicitor who specialises in such claims.
The Berkshire Asbestos Support Group can give you information about local solicitors who are experts in dealing with these types of claims.
