Guide to Compensation for Mesothelioma

It is possible to make a claim for compensation for mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases such as pleural thickening, asbestosis and lung cancer.

It is understandable that on being diagnosed with this condition the last thing on your mind is to become involved in a legal claim. However it is not as daunting a prospect as you might think.

In fact, due to victims of asbestos diseases pursuing claims and making employers aware of the dangers of asbestos, the health and safety regulations in England and Wales have been improved to try and prevent further exposure to asbestos in the future.
