THE COMPENSATION & LEGAL HELP SECTION
It is important that specialist legal advice is obtained as soon as possible after a person is diagnosed with an asbestos related disease – even if you have no idea where your exposure to asbestos fibre/dust may have been from, or when. Often a substantial amount of compensation will be lost, or a case may be unable to be conducted at all, if it is not pursued in a claimants lifetime. In situations involving grave health, specialist lawyers can sometimes commence proceedings within a matter of hours after speaking with someone suffering an asbestos related disease such as mesothelioma asbestos cancer, thus protecting their family’s rights. Traditionally the litigators will take instructions at the sufferers home, or if necessary in a hospital – in other words they will come to you. Please ensure you read the Seeking Compensation & Legal Help page (below) before seeking a specialist litigator or registering with a statutory authority such as Icare Dust Diseases Care.
