Legal specialists in asbestos and mesothelioma claims

Which law firm?

Deciding which law firm to use to make your asbestos disease claim can be a daunting task at the best of times.

These questions and answers are designed to help you make a correct decision. Please let us know if there is anything that we have not covered or if you would like more information about our experience, expertise or the asbestos disease claims process.

Choosing the right law firm will help you to make a successful stress free asbestos disease claim, in the shortest time possible.

Q. There are several law firms which say they can help me. Why should I choose you?

A. The UK’s leading legal commentators, Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession and The Legal 500 continue to rate us as one of the leading firms in the country for helping people who have suffered an industrial disease get maximum compensation in the minimum amount of time.

The team are all asbestos specialist solicitors and, unlike some other firms, we do not use unqualified staff to handle asbestos cases due to their complexity.

Importantly, all of our solicitors are highly professional and supremely effective in securing the best outcome for clients in the minimum time.

Q. I am having a really tough time, and sometimes it all feels too much. Will making a claim just make things more difficult for me and my family?

A. The physical, emotional and financial distress which an asbestos illness causes to both you and those who are close to you is often significant. We provide the very best in terms of support and guidance at this difficult time and have an established network of contacts and charities that are able to help with treatment and support for you and your family.

We will assist directly with appropriate benefits applications for you.

It can be tempting to put off making a claim but this should be avoided. It is important that claims are investigated as quickly as possible. This will ensure that you are not time barred.

Q. If I choose to make a claim with you will I have to speak to lots of different people?

A. No. Having to repeatedly tell your story to different people is not only time consuming, but can also be very frustrating. We understand this and wherever possible ensure that whoever deals with your case does so from start to finish. This means you can rest assured that you will not find yourself having to repeatedly retell your story or get to know new names and faces.

Q. I am thinking of using a claims company. Is the process faster? Would I get more compensation?

A. Many people believe that claims companies have brought the process of bringing a valid compensation claim into disrepute.

Anyone with a TV or radio will have seen claims companies adverts promising extremely large compensation payouts. In truth, these organisations are in effect marketing middle men who sell your case on to a law firm as part of a bundle of cases. Many of these law firms are often generalist and do not have specific industrial disease experience. This means that there is no guarantee that your case will be handled by an appropriately experienced lawyer with the result that your claim will be slower to progress, less likely to succeed and ultimately provide less compensation.
