Asbestos claims process
We offer all our clients a free and no obligation initial case assessment, where we will discuss the merits of your claim and aim to answer any questions you may have. We understand that the weeks and months after an asbestos related diagnosis can be a confusing and emotional time for everyone concerned. We aim to make the process of making a claim as stress free as possible by attending you at your home to take witness statements and working as hard as we can on your behalf.
We fund all of our asbestos related claims using conditional fee agreements, which are better known as ‘No Win No Fee’ agreements. We do not require our clients to pay any upfront fees or disbursements (costs associated with making a claim such as medical reports or barristers fees).
Claim time limits for asbestos related compensation claims
There are strict time limits in place which determine whether you can claim compensation for asbestos related disease matters.
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
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.
How much can I claim?
The total amount of compensation that may be awarded to you is dependent on a range of factors including the severity of your condition and how old you are at the time of diagnosis.
The amount awarded in compensation for a specific asbestos related condition is based on a set of national guidelines. The general amounts of compensation range from £12,000 for cases with mild symptoms, where clients are able to maintain their current lifestyle, to over £250,000 for clients whose life expectancy has been dramatically reduced due to their condition.
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.
