Accident Advice Helpline is a dedicated team of accident and injury solicitors in Cherwell. We can help you claim personal injury compensation for a wide range of illness and injuries.
One of the things that we have noticed in our capacity as personal injury lawyers, is that so many people do not realise that they can claim compensation for diseases, as well as physical injuries, providing that they were caused by another party, usually an employer.
One of the diseases we are often tasked with helping people claim for is also one of the most serious – Mesothelioma. This is a form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. Most people who develop Mesothelioma do so, due to exposure to the dangerous chemical at work.
Sadly, there is no cure for Mesothelioma and victims typically only have a short life expectancy once they have been diagnosed with the illness.
Claiming for Mesothelioma
You should be able to file a compensation claim for Mesothelioma providing you can show that you contracted the illness through exposure to asbestos in the workplace. As Mesothelioma can take many years to present itself, this could be a place that you worked at many years ago.
You will have only 3 years from the day you are diagnosed with the disease to file a personal injury claim, and since the disease spreads and takes lives so quickly, such claims are usually processed much more rapidly than many other personal injury claims.
As Mesothelioma is such a quick killer, it may also be possible for family members of an afflicted person to claim compensation for their illness after they have died, depending on circumstances.
Accident and injury solicitors in Cherwell
It is highly advisable that you hire one of our accident and injury solicitors to file your claim for you, if you are suffering from Mesothelioma, because the disease acts so quickly. This can be so devastating that the last thing you want to be doing is filing paperwork and fighting for compensation. Your time would be much better spent with your loved ones, making as many good memories as possible, while we fight for justice for you in the form of a compensation settlement.
