Asbestos Compensation in Lincolnshire
The time after an asbestos related disease diagnosis can be an extremely upsetting and frightening period for all persons concerned. You may have been advised by your specialist consultant to seek legal advice from solicitors that specialise in asbestos related disease claims and with so many law firms claiming to specialise in asbestos claims, it can seem like a difficult decision about who to instruct.
We recommend you ask solicitors about their experience and how long they have been working on behalf of clients in asbestos related claims.
The asbestos solicitors at Nigel Askew have over 20 years experience in dealing with asbestos related disease claims and have helped countless clients receive compensation in claims for asbestosis, mesothelioma, asbestos related lung cancer and pleural thickening. We understand the complex legal issues that make up an asbestos claim and are completely focused on our clients’ needs and committed to achieving the best possible results.

We have helped clients who have previously worked as electricians, plumbers, roofers, tilers and homebuilders successfully claim compensation. To discuss a new claim, please call us on 01507 609027.
How much compensation can I claim?
The amount awarded in compensation for a specific asbestos related condition is based on a set of national guidelines and are set out below:
- Asbestosis – £14,000 – £91,000
- Asbestos Lung Cancer – £66,000 – £91,000
- Mesothelioma – £66,000 – £118,000
- Pleural Thickening – £14,000 – £91,000
These figures are used as a guide and the value of asbestos related disease claims can be significantly more if a client has developed an asbestos condition at a young age, has dependants or if they are unable to continue working as a result of their condition. The above figures are for the condition only and any financial losses will be paid on top.
Time limits for asbestos related compensation claims
There are strict time limits in place which determine whether you can successfully pursue a claim for asbestos related disease.
There is usually a three year period from 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 fall foul of this three year limitation period, please contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today and one of our expert asbestos solicitors will be able to advise you on the merits of your potential claim.
The company I worked for is no longer trading
This is a common question that many of our clients ask us.
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.
