Asbestos injury compensation claims have been made against companies that used asbestos in their manufacturing process or in their buildings ever since the link between exposure to asbestos and diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma was first acknowledged. Nonetheless, making an asbestos injury compensation claim is far from simple due to the fact that the diseases associated with exposure to asbestos may take many years to manifest.
Irrespective of the type of asbestos-related injury you or a loved one have developed, it may still be possible to claim asbestos injury compensation against a company, provided it can be shown that the exposure to the harmful asbestos dust was due to the negligence of your former employer or other third party. This may require specific legal arguments and is the key reason why you should always use an experienced personal injury claims solicitor when making an asbestos injury compensation claim.
Making an Asbestos Injury Compensation Claim
A solicitor will also be able to ensure that your claim for asbestos injury compensation not only covers the physical injury that you have sustained, but also the costs of ongoing care, medical expenses and any other addition expense or loss of income that you have incurred. Your personal circumstances will have a great deal of influence on how much asbestos injury compensation you receive, and occasionally the special damages you are entitled to may even be of greater value that the asbestos injury compensation itself.
Under the Statute of Limitations, you only have two years from the date on which you discover you have an asbestos injury in which to make a claim for asbestos injury compensation. Discussing your asbestos injury compensation claim with an experienced personal injury claims solicitor as soon as you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related injury enables the solicitor to compile the strongest possible case for you in the time that is available.
