Top Lawyers for Asbestos Compensation Claims

Asbestos Compensation Claims

OH Parsons is one of the leading law firms in the UK that has a professional and experienced team of asbestos solicitors. People working in factories were often exposed to asbestos fibres, the inhalation of which can lead to chronic lung disease, breathlessness, scarred lung tissue and sometimes death. The initial exposure can lead to symptoms which may appear after many years. Those symptoms may not initially be considered linked to the asbestos exposure and that may only be considered after investigations and exclusion of other health issues.

As asbestos-related diseases have become one of the most common industry-related diseases, there are many individuals who need legal help to make asbestos compensation claims against their employees. Over the years, OH Parsons has worked on ground-breaking asbestos claims and won landmark victories.

What are the diseases that can be caused by asbestos?

Asbestos exposure can lead to a range of diseases including:

      • Lung cancer
      • Mesothelioma
      • Pleural thickening
      • Asbestosis
      • Symptomatic Pleural Plaques

Can I claim for asbestos exposure?

In case you have been diagnosed with any disease that is caused due to exposure to asbestos then you can make an asbestos related compensation claim within 3 years of that diagnosis.

What is the amount of compensation I am eligible to receive for asbestos diseases?

Asbestos compensation usually depends on a number of factors as each case differs from another on various aspects. Here are some of the factors that will help determine the exact value of the compensation amount:

      • How the disease has affected your life
      • Treatment and rehabilitation costs
      • The type of disease you are inflicted with
      • Costs of care and services provided to you by loved ones and friends
      • Loss of income, job or financial losses you suffered by being absent from work due to the disease or will suffer due to any impact on your life expectancy
      • If you are spouse of a deceased victim, then you can get compensation for the loss of their income and services as well
