Asbestos Compensation for Nottinghamshire
The period after a diagnosis with an asbestos related disease can be an extremely upsetting and difficult time for all persons concerned. You may find yourself shell shocked at the news and have lots of questions but are getting very little in the way of answers.
You may have been advised by the specialist at your hospital that you might be entitled to make a claim for your condition and to seek legal advice from solicitors that specialise in asbestos related disease claims. With so many law firms claiming to specialise in asbestos claims, it can be difficult choosing which firm to help you.
When researching solicitors to help you, we recommend that you ask each firm about their experience and how long they have been working on behalf of clients in asbestos related claims. Asbestos disease litigation is a complicated area of law so it’s vital you instruct a firm with a proven track record in winning these types of claims.

How much compensation can I claim?
The amount of compensation that may be awarded to clients, depends on the type of condition you have been diagnosed with. In England and Wales, these compensation amounts are based on a set of national guidelines which are set out below:
- Asbestosis – £12,000 – £90,000
- Asbestos Lung Cancer – £59,000 – £91,000
- Mesothelioma – £59,000 – £118,000
- Pleural Thickening – £12,000 – £90,000
These figures are used as a guide and the value of your particular asbestos claim may be significantly more. Other factors that will affect the value of your claim include if you have developed the condition at a young age, if you have people that depend on you or if you are unable to continue working as a result of your condition.
Time limits for asbestos related compensation claims
There are strict time limits in place which determine whether you can successfully pursue a claim for your asbestos related disease. The time limits are also commonly referred to as the claim “limitation period”.
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 be prevented from claiming due to this limitation period then please contact us today. Our experts can quickly determine if your particular circumstances will allow us to represent you in a claim by asking you a handful of important questions.
The company I worked for closed 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. Contact us today to discuss your specific claim details.
