Finding a great asbestos solicitor to help you win the compensation you deserve
Accident Advice Helpline can help you with an experienced asbestos solicitor who will help you to win compensation for any ill health implications you have as a consequence of asbestos poisoning. Accident Advice Helpline’s solicitors will work for you on a no-win, no-fee* basis, which means you will not have to contribute to the legal costs up front. In the event the claim fails, there is no fee* to pay. There is no obligation to proceed with your claim if you decide against it after talking through the merits of your case with our friendly, expert, advisors.
What is asbestos poisoning?
Asbestos was used commonly in building projects between 1930 and the mid-1970s. Tens of thousands of people exposed to asbestos have sadly gone on to develop a variety of serious asbestos-related illnesses, such as cancer.
Are you entitled to compensation?
A recent court ruling has now made it possible for those affected by asbestos poisoning to claim compensation from their former employers or, in the event the employer no longer exists, their insurer. Once an asbestos solicitor is appointed to you, they will fight to make sure you’re awarded every penny you’re entitled to.
It is not only those who worked directly with asbestos who can claim compensation, but those who were exposed to asbestos fibres outside of work, such as from affected clothing brought into the home by a family member who worked closely with asbestos.
