Asbestos Compensation Claims

The health risks associated with exposure to asbestos have been common knowledge for decades; the widespread use of asbestos having long ceased. Asbestos related diseases are still common however, due to the fact that there is a delay between the original exposure and the development of the condition.

If you have developed a condition as a result of asbestos exposure, Farleys Solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation. We understand that you and your family will be going through an extremely difficult time and as such, we will use our experience and sensitivity to make the process of pursuing a claim as stress-free as possible.

Claiming Compensation for Asbestos Diseases

There are a number of conditions that are caused by exposure to asbestos dust:

Mesothelioma –

  • This is a form of cancer which commonly affects the lining of the lung but can also affect the lining of the abdomen and heart. The development of this condition can take between ten and sixty years.
  • Only minimal exposure to asbestos dust is required for the condition to develop and the causal link between exposure and the condition is generally accepted by the Courts.

Lung cancer –

  • It is widely accepted that exposure to asbestos may cause lung cancer, but it is difficult to assess how much the exposure contributed to the condition if the patient was also a smoker.
  • Claims of this nature can often be difficult to prove. It is therefore vital that you have a solicitor experienced in asbestos compensation claims to handle your case. Unlike mesothelioma claims, a significant lifetime exposure to asbestos is usually necessary for your claim to succeed.

Asbestosis –

  • This is caused by inhaling asbestos dust or fibres. It is a severe form of scarring to the lungs and can result in serious breathing problems. It has also been known to develop into mesothelioma or lung cancer.

Pleural thickening –

  • This is a scarring of the lining of the lung which can also cause breathing difficulties.

If you or a relative are suffering from any of these diseases, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.  Our asbestos illness claim solicitors have extensive experience in dealing with compensation claims of this nature. We will handle your case with sensitivity and always act in your best interests to ensure the best possible outcome in your claim.

No Win No Fee Asbestos Claims

Wherever possible, Farleys will pursue your claim on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, meaning that you won’t be asked to pay a penny. There are no hidden fees to pay to us and you will keep the entirety of any compensation awarded.
