How to claim mesothelioma compensation for family members

  • Many of our successful mesothelioma compensation cases have been brought by family members 
  • If you know someone who has sadly died, a claim may still be brought by the executors or administrators of their estate

Please contact us for more information.

Why should I make a claim?

Employer responsibility

When the dangers of asbestos became known, employers became responsible for protecting staff from breathing in asbestos fibres which can cause mesothelioma.  Many employers failed to do so and risked the health and safety of their staff for their own gains.

We believe that if you are a victim of mesothelioma, or any other asbestos-related illness, those who negligently exposed you to asbestos should be brought to justice. They should be made to pay compensation for your suffering.  After all, they made a profit by knowingly putting your health at risk.

Contact us today and let us help you to make a mesothelioma compensation claim.

We offer the highest level of legal expertise and we are happy to chat with you today if you have been diagnosed with or are concerned about mesothelioma or any other asbestos-related illness.

How much compensation for mesothelioma

Every case is unique and the value of your mesothelioma compensation claim cannot be calculated until medical evidence has been obtained along with details of all associated losses and expenses.  Once we have assessed your case in detail, only then will we be able to provide you with a valuation.

Compensation statistics

In 2014, the government published a study into the average mesothelioma compensation awarded and found that the average of compensation won ranged between £137,000 and £153,531.  You can find out more about this on the government website.

Time to claim

There are strict time limits for bringing mesothelioma compensation claims, so it is important not to delay and to seek specialist advice as soon as possible. Please contact us today for free, expert advice.

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer of the mesothelium, which is a membrane that covers most of the organs of the body.  It is usually caused by breathing in asbestos fibres and most people who develop mesothelioma have worked with or near to asbestos in the past.  Sometimes it is referred to as malignant mesothelioma, but it is often just called mesothelioma.

  • There are around 2,500 new cases of mesothelioma each year in the UK

  • Up to 9 out of 10 cases of mesothelioma have been caused by contact with asbestos in the past

The mesothelioma tumour usually grows in the pleural membrane that lines the lungs - this is called pleural mesothelioma.

What mesothelioma looks like on the lung

How does mesothelioma develop?

Although the exposure to asbestos may have occurred many years ago, the tiny asbestos fibres can become lodged in the membrane that lines the lungs and lie there for many years before any illness develops.

  • It usually takes between 20 and 40 years for mesothelioma to develop after being exposed to asbestos
  • It can be as short as 10 years or more than 60 years
  • Some people will never suffer any disease as a result of contact with asbestos

Symptoms of this form of cancer

The tumour causes inward pressure on the lungs and can cause symptoms such as;

  • chest pain

  • breathlessness

  • fever

  • sweating

  • loss of appetite

  • weight loss

  • tiredness

  • persistent cough (not as common)

Occasionally, the tumour develops in the membrane lining the organs of the abdomen – this is called peritoneal mesothelioma.

Treatment for mesothelioma is often given with the aim of slowing the growth of the tumour.
