Has the company you worked for ceased trading?
Like many new clients we speak to, you may be concerned that the company you worked for is no longer trading and may have closed down many years ago.
Do not worry if your employer is no longer trading, our expert asbestos solicitors are often able to trace the employer’s liability insurers of dormant or closed companies. This means that despite your old employer closing or being taken over, you still may be able to claim.

Compensation amounts for asbestos claims
The actual amount of compensation you could expect to receive for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries are based on a set of national guidelines and fall into bands.
The figures below are based on figures published in the 15th edition of the Judicial College Guidelines for the assessment of damages in personal injury cases, which was published in 2019.
- Asbestosis – £12,000 – £90,000
- Asbestos Lung Cancer – £59,000 – £91,000
- Mesothelioma – £59,000 – £118,000
- Pleural Thickening – £12,000 – £90,000
In addition to damages for pain and suffering, our asbestos claim solicitors are also able to claim for special damages, which include loss of earnings claims (past and future) and medical care. These special damages often make up a large percentage of the total claim value, which in some cases are valued at several million pounds.
Every asbestos claim for compensation is different and with so many legal complexities to consider, it is vital that you instruct a firm of solicitors who have the necessary expertise and experience to deal with your claim.

Time limits for asbestos related compensation claims
The law in England & Wales states there is a strict 3 year time limit in which you are able to start a claim for compensation.
This 3 year time limit starts from either the date of a diagnosis or from the date that you first linked your asbestos disease with your exposure to asbestos dust at work.
If you are unsure if you can make a claim, or if you think you may be prevented from claiming due to this limitation period then please contact us today for expert advice. Our solicitors can quickly determine if your particular circumstances will allow us to represent you in a claim.
