Asbestos & Mesothelioma Claims

Solicitors specialising in asbestos & mesothelioma compensation claims

There was widespread use of asbestos in various industries up until the 1980’s despite available knowledge that exposure to asbestos was injurious to health.

Exposure to asbestos can cause the following types of disease:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Lung cancer
  • Asbestosis
  • Pleural plaques
  • Diffuse pleural thickening

Workers who were regularly exposed to asbestos during the course of their employment included:

  • Laggers
  • Shipyard workers
  • Building workers
  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Gas fitters
  • Asbestos manufacturing workers

In addition, family members were often exposed to dust brought home on the clothing of relatives who had been working with asbestos.

If you or a member of your family has been diagnosed with an asbestos related disease, contact us for advice and ask for a member of the personal injury team. A member of our experienced team of solicitors will advise you as to whether you are likely to have an asbestos disease claim and in appropriate cases we can act for you on a no win no fee basis. If after talking to us you decide not to go ahead with a claim, you are under no obligation to do so and we will not charge for our initial advice session. We're based in the North East, but act for clients across the country as well as those in Sunderland, Newcastle and across the northern region.
