If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure, Trethowans mesothelioma claims solicitors can help you make a successful compensation claim.
Once diagnosed, mesothelioma can develop quickly, which is why our mesothelioma solicitors always push living mesothelioma cases hard to be completed within the sufferer’s lifetime. John Hall, head of mesothelioma claims here at Trethowans, frequently concludes mesothelioma cases within 3-6 months of first instruction.
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs and is almost always linked to an individual’s historic exposure to asbestos. Symptoms often take more than 20 years to develop, which is what makes it such a deadly disease. Tragically, medical diagnosis is not often secured fast enough to implement effective long-term treatment.
For this reason, if you or a family member has been diagnosed you should speak to our specialist mesothelioma claims solicitors as soon as possible to find out if you are able to make a claim. You could be entitled to compensation worth in excess of £1 million, so it is definitely worth pursuing a mesothelioma claim if you are eligible.
Why mesothelioma claims are on the rise
Unfortunately, the number of recorded cases is on the rise, with over 2,500 cases diagnosed in the UK per year. This is because of the long time it takes for the cancer to develop (often more than 20 years). Asbestos was heavily used in the construction industry during the 1970s, which means that workers and families exposed during this period may only now be noticing the effects.
Even if the business you used to work for and is responsible for your exposure to asbestos is no longer operating, you are still able to make a claim for compensation. Our experienced mesothelioma claims solicitors, can help you take your first steps towards compensation.
