Nobody wants securing industrial disease compensation to take longer than necessary, and we will do everything we can to bring your claim to a speedy resolution – often in as little as 3-6 months.
Secondary and environmental exposure claims
In some circumstances it is possible to claim industrial disease compensation even if you have never worked directly with asbestos. If you have come into contact with asbestos in the local environment or from a family member who worked with asbestos, speak to us. We are expert at pursuing these sort of claims for compensation.
Compensation when you need it most
If you are diagnosed with pleural thickening, asbestosis or lung cancer, you can get a court order which compensates you for your current condition and leaves it open for you to seek additional compensation if you condition deteriorates. This is known as a “provisional damages” award and acts like an insurance policy to protect you and your family in the future. Our team of dedicated lawyers will provide you with the specialist advice to secure the court order which will get you the compensation when you need it most.
