Victims of deadly asbestos-induced cancerous mesothelioma who are unable to trace to a responsible employer or employer liability insurer will soon be able to apply for compensation packages worth an average of £123,000. It is paid if mesothelioma may have been caused by exposure to asbestos dust at work. This includes people who have worked abroad for a UK company. You don't need to have worked with asbestos to get this benefit.
You just need to have been exposed to asbestos dust at work. You may be able to receive a one-time payment if you were exposed to asbestos dust at work and have mesothelioma. If you were in the military and have mesothelioma because you were in contact with asbestos, you may be able to file a claim. In bankruptcy proceedings, many asbestos manufacturers have been ordered to establish trust funds with sufficient money to compensate future asbestos victims.
We can also help you file a claim through the government's Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Plan if you can't find the employer responsible for your condition. Anyone diagnosed with mesothelioma who has worked somewhere where they were exposed to asbestos in the past can seek compensation from their employer. If you develop mesothelioma as a result of exposure to an asbestos product manufactured by a company that went bankrupt, your legal claim for damages may be pursued through the bankrupt company's trust fund rather than the court system. You'll usually have three years to make a claim from the date you were diagnosed with mesothelioma.
Loss of income If you were working at the time of diagnosis of mesothelioma or lung cancer and you have to stop working as a result of your illness, it is possible to claim your loss of income from your opponent. Financial compensation for mesothelioma may come from asbestos trust funds, settlements, or jury verdicts. We offer the highest level of legal expertise in mesothelioma claims and can visit you at home if needed. Sources of compensation for mesothelioma include asbestos trust funds, as well as verdicts or settlements obtained through lawsuits.
Bereavement Damages Bereavement damages are paid to the husband or wife of a person who has died of mesothelioma in a claim for compensation. We will also discuss how asbestos claims against employers or companies work and what level of compensation could be awarded. That will make the asbestos claims process less stressful, since you will only have to pay for your lawyer's work if you receive compensation.
