Asbestos litigation


Asbestos litigation

If you or someone in your family has received an asbestos disease diagnosis, you can pursue asbestos litigation in order to receive compensation.

Enlisting the help of an asbestos litigation solicitor

Asbestos litigation solicitors can help you to strengthen your case for compensation. The amount of compensation you receive will vary, depending on the extent to which your illness impacts your ability to live your life. You may be able to claim two types of compensation: general and special damages.

General damages

General damages compensates you for the effect your illness has had on your daily activities. General damages can include:

• Pain and suffering
• Loss of promotion
• Disadvantage in the labour market
• Inability to carry out everyday tasks, such as bathing and dressing

Special damages

Special damages compensates you for your financial losses and expenses up to the date of your hearing. It also covers any future financial losses you are expected to face. There is no limit on the amount of special damages compensation you are able to claim because the theory behind this element to your compensation settlement is that it is intended to ensure that you are put back into the position you would have been in had your illness never occurred.

Special damages can include:

• Loss of past, present and future earnings
• Private medical expenses
• Costs of specialist medical aids
• Travel expenses
• Care costs
• Loss of pension rights

Usually, our asbestos solicitors will negotiate an interim award on your behalf, which means that you will receive some compensation before your claim has been finalised. Interim awards can help you to meet the cost of hiring home help and getting to and from your hospital appointments.
