Mesothelioma explained

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer which can occur in the lining of the lungs. It’s caused by being exposed to asbestos dust and breathing in the fibres. Because asbestos-related diseases, such as asbestosis and mesothelioma typically take up to 20 years to develop, current cases usually reflect the legacy of past working conditions.

To find out more about mesothelioma, we refer you to the informative NHS website.

Most common causes for mesothelioma

Asbestosis and mesothelioma are usually caused by a prolonged exposure to asbestos fibres. Although the use of asbestos has been banned since 1999, it can still be present in old buildings. This is why today, you can still be exposed to asbestos, for example in the following cases:

  • You live in a building which contains asbestos.
  • You work in a building which contains asbestos.
  • You work on a construction or demolition site with asbestos, e.g. as a builder, carpenter or roofing contractor.
  • You are exposed to asbestos because you handle contaminated materials, e.g. clothes.
  • You work abroad, in a country where asbestos is still legal.

So, no matter when or how you came into contact with asbestos, if you are suffering from mesothelioma or another asbestos related condition, due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to claim compensation.

What can I claim for?

Your compensation claim can include the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of earnings
  • House modifications
  • Rehabilitation and treatment

Who is responsible for my illness?

If you have been exposed to asbestos fibres over a lengthy period of time, you can usually claim compensation. Even if the company responsible for the exposure is no longer in business, you can still claim compensation from their insurers.

If you are currently working with materials containing asbestos, your employer might be at fault: Your employer has to follow a set of regulations called the “Six Pack” to comply with the Health and Safety Act from 1974. According to these regulations, your employer has to carry out a full health and safety assessment to protect you from any harm.

If you have been exposed to asbestos at work, contact us to establish your full legal position with one of our expert solicitors.

I’ve been diagnosed with pleural thickening. Can I claim compensation?

Unlike mesothelioma, pleural thickening is not malignant. It is, however, often connected to asbestos exposure and you might be able to claim compensation for the pain and suffering you have to endure. Contact us to establish your full legal position.

How much can I claim for mesothelioma or another asbestos related illness?

It completely depends on the impact the illness has on your life. If the illness was caused due to someone else’s negligence, your claim for pain and suffering could be worth several thousands of pounds. For more information call us on freephone 0800 083 5045 or try our online claims calculator.
