After a diagnosis of an asbestos-related condition you may have been advised to seek legal advice to claim compensation. It is important that you seek advice from a specialist in industrial disease claims. Here we answer the questions you should ask your potential solicitor.
Are you a specialist asbestos disease solicitor?
Our team are asbestos disease claim specialists with over 30 years combined experience in dealing with these cases. Over this time we have succeeded in hundreds of asbestos claims, often in difficult circumstances. We have regularly been successful in recovering hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation to cover our clients’ private immunotherapy costs after they have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. This has often resulted in positive effects.
How many asbestos disease claims have you dealt with?
We have assessed thousands of asbestos disease claims and have successfully recovered millions of pounds in compensation for our clients.
How long does it take for you to conclude an asbestos disease compensation claim?
It is important to us that your asbestos claim is dealt with quickly so that you receive the compensation and secure the justice you deserve in as short a time as possible. Every claim is different and it is impossible to put a time estimate on each claim. However, we regularly settle mesothelioma claims within just a few months of initially hearing from our clients and their families.
Have you brought claims against my employers before?
We have pursued claims against a long list of employers. Even if we haven’t pursued a claim against your former employer, we will centre all of our efforts into tracing the company and their insurer so that we can bring an asbestos claim on your behalf. Our team are experts in tracing companies and have even found insurance for companies where other solicitors have failed.
Will you arrange a home visit to discuss my potential asbestos disease claim?
We are happy to arrange a home visit, if you would like one. The claims process can be dealt with through post, email and via telephone but some clients prefer to meet face to face and we will travel across the UK to meet with clients and their families.
Will I need to go for a medical examination?
If you are pursuing a claim for mesothelioma compensation, we will obtain a medical report based on your medical records alone so you will not need to attend a medical examination.
If you are claiming for any other asbestos-related condition, we will usually arrange for you to attend an appointment with an expert physician, as close to your home as possible.
How will you keep me up to date on the progress of my claim?
We take great pride in providing first class client care for our clients and we promise to update you regularly when dealing with your case. Calls and emails are responded to within 24 hours at the latest. As we are a dedicated team, we make it a priority to deal with your claim efficiently and swiftly.
Can someone else liaise with you about my claim?
With your consent, we can speak to family members about your ongoing asbestos claim to assist with the smooth running of the case.
Will I have to pay you any money?
All of our asbestos claims are dealt with on a no win, no fee basis and you will never have to send us any payment for the work we do you on your case.
What if my claim is unsuccessful?
You will not have to pay any costs if your claim is unsuccessful.
