Mesothelioma Compensation

If you're suffering from mesothelioma as a result of working in industry, you may be able to claim mesothelioma compensation. You're eligible to make a mesothelioma compensation claim if you are suffering from the disease and your employer (or former employer) has failed in their duty of care to you.

This duty of care essentially means that your employer must take steps to make your workplace as safe and healthy as possible. For example, assessing environmental risk and providing protective clothing where appropriate.

For your claim to be valid, you need to contact Industrial Accident Helpline - a service provided by the National Accident Helpline - within three years of your diagnosis, even if you haven't worked in industry for years or even decades.

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, and it's most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos inhalation. Although asbestos is safe in its contained form, when it's damaged it releases tiny fibres which, when inhaled, can be extremely harmful. Asbestos was a widely used substance in industry for a number of decades, before being banned in 1999.

The effects of this disease are long-term and can be serious, which is why you should contact us today to make a mesothelioma claim for the compensation that you are entitled to.

How mesothelioma compensation can help

We've been helping people like you, who are living with mesothelioma, since 1993 and we're specialists in our field. We strongly believe that mesothelioma compensation is important due to the potentially devastating long-term effects that the disease can have on your standard of life. Even the treatment for mesothelioma - often a combination of surgery and chemotherapy - can cause disruption to your life and leave you fatigued for prolonged periods of time.

If you've contracted mesothelioma and your employer did not provide you with the necessary health and safety measures, you are legally entitled to compensation. Your mesothelioma compensation can help you cover any lost earnings from work absences caused by your disease, while you can also use your compensation to help pay any medical bills you might have incurred.
