Have you suffered an asbestos related injury at work, through the negligence of someone else? If so, our law firm has the professional skill and knowledge to give you the best chance of compensation.
Our legal team specialises in making personal injury claims, and having been in business for more than 15 years we offer a long track record of success. One of the first aspects of claiming that you need to consider is whether or not you are eligible, so let’s have a look at the criteria that needs to be met.
Claiming within three years
This is the timescale for starting a claim, and runs from the date of your accident to the start date of a claim.
Not your fault
The accident must not have been your fault. If it’s an asbestos related injury that you’re claiming for, it’s likely that an employer or organisation was to blame.
Your medical assessment and treatment received at the time of the accident forms a large part of your case evidence.
The best way to fund a claim is no win, no fee*
No win, no fee* describes the way in which a claim is funded. Basically, if the case isn’t won you don’t pay a fee to your solicitor. Its formal title is a Conditional Fee Agreement, and this offers you the best way to start a case from a financial perspective.
No win, no fee* offers you two significant benefits:
- You don’t need to pay any monies upfront
- You aren’t required to pay any of your solicitor’s fees if the claim is unsuccessful
Accident Advice Helpline offers no win, no fee* for all claims, as we believe that it’s the ethical and responsible way to operate.
Claiming for an asbestos related injury
Our team of in-house solicitors processes as many claims as possible over the phone. This often negates the need for our customers to attend court, and can speed up completion times in some cases.
Your specialist solicitor will negotiate with the negligent third party, and keep you regularly updated on progress. If there’s a need for one more medical assessment, you’ll be able to claim back any travel or parking expenses, or any other associated costs. Just keep all the receipts, and the total will be added to your overall claim amount.
Speak to one of our helpful advisers now by phoning 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile phone. Let our helpline team provide you with an estimate for compensation, and tell you more about how we process our claims.
