Asbestos and Mesothelioma Solicitors
Anyone exposed to asbestos is at risk of developing an asbestos-related disease, whether your exposure has been at a workplace, in the home, or in a building where the air is contaminated with asbestos fibres or from handling contaminated clothing.
We are leading asbestos and mesothelioma specialists, and our highly experienced personal injury team provides expert advice to clients suffering from illnesses caused by exposure to asbestos. We also help family members and loved ones of those diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease to bring claims against those responsible on their behalf.

Asbestos Related Diseases
We have a lot of experience in representing people who have contracted asbestos-related illnesses, including claims relating to the following malignant (cancerous) conditions:
- Mesothelioma — A form of cancer that is caused by asbestos exposure
- Asbestos-Related Lung Cancer – Although most cases of lung cancer originate from smoking, asbestos exposure can also be a cause.
Usually, considerable asbestos exposure, both in frequency and amount, is required to cause mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer.
We can also help if you have been diagnosed with other asbestos-related illnesses, including:
- Asbestosis — An illness resulting from significant exposure to asbestos fibres, with effects usually appearing 20 or more years after exposure.
- Pleural Thickening – also known as Pleural Fibrosis, is an asbestos-related disease caused by fibrosis to the pleura. Pleural thickening has other causes, but where there is evidence of asbestos exposure, it is reasonable to believe asbestos was the cause of the illness.

Asbestos Compensation Claims
Those who have worked in certain industries where asbestos use is commonplace are generally at more of an increased risk of developing a condition than the rest of the population. The disease, however, is indiscriminate and can affect office workers, teachers, and homemakers, and laggers or dock workers. It is important to note that many people exposed to asbestos will not develop any form of asbestos disease.
Typically, asbestos-related diseases are contracted through occupational exposure. Your employer has a duty of care to provide a safe working environment, the appropriate training and efficient safety equipment to keep you as safe as possible while at work. Do you believe you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos at work and were not provided adequate safety equipment and training, resulting in an asbestos-related illness? You may be entitled to bring a compensation claim against your employer, even if you no longer work for them. Our team can also advise you if the business your employer for no longer exists.
Various complex factors are involved in making an asbestos compensation claim. You should seek legal advice as early as possible to ensure your case has the best chance of a successful outcome.
