How much compensation will you receive?

The mesothelioma compensation awarded to sufferers will usually depend on their personal circumstances.

Our team will talk with you before calculating your compensation in order to find out exactly how mesothelioma has impacted on your health, finances and way of life. This information accompanied by our knowledge of mesothelioma symptoms and the issues faced by sufferers, will allow us to then work towards securing you the sum you need to make everyday life just that little bit easier.

Your mesothelioma compensation will typically include damages for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of earnings
  • Medical support
  • Future related expenses

When negotiating your compensation with the responsible party, our legal team will always fight to achieve you the maximum possible amount. This will ensure that have access to the care and support you need, and obtain justice for the impact mesothelioma has had on your health and wellbeing.

Compensation for past exposure

Mesothelioma sufferers typically develop the respiratory condition decades after their initial exposure to asbestos. Therefore, many of the organisations responsible for causing mesothelioma or asbestosis in people are now closed or out-of-business.

In these circumstances, our solicitors can contact their insurance provider in order to get hold of your compensation.

It is important to remember that even if you were exposed many years ago, you can still pursue a claim for mesothelioma compensation. As long as you start the claims process within three years of your diagnosis, you can receive a settlement for your condition.

Further funding and support

Roberts Jackson solicitors can also provide you with information on any additional support that is available to industrial disease sufferers.

From government funding such as the Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB) to charities and support groups, we will make sure that you are surrounded by a high level of help and support, while our solicitors focus on providing you with the legal assistance you need.
