How do I make an asbestos compensation claim?
Book a free initial chat with our expert asbestos solicitors in Salisbury
We can offer you a free initial chat with one of our expert asbestos and mesothelioma solicitors in Salisbury to get the claims process started. This meeting will give you the chance to discuss your situation and the impact asbestos-related disease has on your life.
From here, we can then advise you on whether you are likely to be able to make a successful asbestos compensation claim, and the level of compensation we may be able to secure. This is also where we will explain the asbestos claims process in more detail and how it works, and the next steps.
Is there a time limit for making an asbestos compensation claim?
Yes, there are strict time limits for making asbestos claims. The general rule is that you have 3 years to make an asbestos compensation claim from the time you were first aware that:
- You were suffering from an asbestos-related disease.
- Someone else (usually an employer) was to blame for your exposure to asbestos.
It does not matter when the asbestos exposure took place. In many cases, it can take several decades for asbestos-related illnesses to appear, so the only important date is when you were diagnosed.
In some circumstances, different time limits may give you longer to claim. For asbestos claims, the most common exception is where the claim is on behalf of someone who has died. Where this is the case, their dependants or a representative of their estate will normally have 3 years from the date of death to bring a claim.
Time can be a critical factor in asbestos-related diseases, so it is essential to contact our specialist team in Salisbury as soon as possible for expert legal advice.
Will I have to go to court for my asbestos compensation claim?
Our asbestos solicitors in Salisbury settle most asbestos-related disease claims without having to go to court. This helps to ensure that you get the maximum available compensation faster, while also avoiding the stress of court proceedings.
In the rare times when court proceedings are needed to reach a positive resolution, our asbestos compensation solicitors can represent and support you throughout the entire process to make sure that you achieve the best possible outcome.
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 claim with another firm and are unhappy with the results. This could be because the claims process is taking too long, they are dissatisfied with the service provided, or they are not happy with the amount of compensation which has been secured.
Our asbestos solicitors in Salisbury are happy to review your case and provide an independent second opinion. We have successfully taken over asbestos claims from other firms in the past and we can often secure higher settlements and get compensation faster.
