Welcome to Novum Law on the Isle of Wight. Our specialist asbestos solicitors understand exactly how difficult it can be if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease. It can have a massive effect on your life, and you may feel overwhelmed and fearful of what the future holds for you and your family.
If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos disease, such as asbestosis, pleural thickening, or mesothelioma, you might experience shortness of breath and struggle with everyday tasks, like going upstairs or walking to the shops. You may need medical treatment like chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
Asbestos disease can also prevent you from being able to work or leave you dependent on specialist equipment putting an additional financial strain on you and your family.

How do I make an asbestos compensation claim?
Book a free initial chat with our expert asbestos solicitors on the Isle of Wight
We offer a free initial chat with one of our expert asbestos and mesothelioma solicitors on the Isle of Wight to help you get the claims process started. This meeting will allow you to discuss your situation and the impact of asbestos disease on your life.
Our team can then advise you on whether you have a chance of making a successful asbestos compensation claim and the level of compensation we can claim on your behalf. We will also explain the asbestos claims process and the next steps.
Is there a time limit for making an asbestos compensation claim?
Yes. There are strict time limits for asbestos claims which may affect your ability to make a claim. Generally, you have 3 years to make an asbestos compensation claim. This is from the time that you were first aware that:
- You had an asbestos-related disease.
- Someone else (typically an employer) was responsible for your asbestos exposure.
It does not matter when the asbestos exposure occurred. Often, it can take years or even decades for asbestos-related illnesses to appear. The only important date is when you received an official diagnosis.
Different time limits may apply in certain circumstances, giving you longer to make an asbestos or mesothelioma compensation claim. For example, a common exception is where a claim is being made on behalf of someone who has died. Here, their dependents or a representative of their estate will typically have 3 years from their death to bring a claim.
Time is a critical factor in asbestos diseases. It is essential to contact our specialist team on the Isle of Wight as soon as possible for expert legal advice.
Will I have to go to court for my asbestos compensation claim?
Our asbestos solicitors on the Isle of Wight settle most asbestos-related disease claims out of court. This allows you to secure maximum available compensation faster while avoiding the stress of court proceedings.
If a court hearing is needed to achieve a positive outcome, our asbestos compensation solicitors will be with you every step of the way.
I’m unhappy with my solicitor. Can I transfer my asbestos claim to Novum Law?
We often hear from people who have started an asbestos disease compensation claim with another firm but are unhappy with their results. This may be because the process is taking too long, they are not satisfied with the service given, or they are not happy with their lawyer’s level of compensation.
Our asbestos solicitors on the Isle of Wight will be happy to review your case and give an independent second opinion. We have a strong record of securing higher settlements and getting compensation faster when taking over cases from other firms in the past.
