The number of people being diagnosed with asbestos disease continues to rise, despite the dangers of asbestos having been well documented for over 100 years. This is down to the failure of generations of employers to look after the safety of their workers and families.
We work closely with Scottish charities Asbestos Action and Clydebank Asbestos Group who provide invaluable support to individuals with asbestos related illnesses. We are passionate about providing redress for victims of asbestos exposure.
Contact our legal advice helpline on 0141 352 6215 and find out if you can make a claim for compensation.
You are entitled to make a claim for asbestos related disease if you were exposed to asbestos at work. You can also claim if you were exposed through other means such as washing a family member’s work clothing.
This is how Mary Campbell contracted mesothelioma. She was washing her ex-husbands work clothes by hand which were covered in asbestos dust. Our expert asbestos disease solicitors helped her achieve rightful compensation in her lifetime.
We have an extensive database of companies and insurers and vast experience in tracing dissolved companies and restoring them on behalf of our clients to establish liability for asbestos exposure.
At Digby Brown, we are able to recover more compensation for asbestos disease victims and their families.
Our team recently won a landmark court decision achieving over double the amount of compensation for asbestos related disease, pleural plaques, by challenging the agreed framework which set the level of compensation a person was entitled to.
Our asbestos disease solicitors will value your case based on your individual circumstances, not on a predetermined set formula or framework.
The financial risk of pursuing a claim is borne entirely by the firm with no risk to you through our no win no fee funding model, Compensate. This allows our solicitors to use the best medical experts and take your case to court to ensure you receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to.
We understand that when someone is told that they have an asbestos-related disease, that it can be an anxious and traumatic time for them and their family.
Our experience and expertise in asbestos litigation allows us to guide victims and their relatives through the compensation process.
We offer one-to-one contact with qualified asbestos disease solicitors, answering any questions you may have and updating you throughout the case.
In Scotland, the three year period for an asbestos related disease claim will start from the date a person should have been aware that their asbestos disease symptoms were related to their employment.
The three year period may well start prior to any medical diagnosis by a doctor.
If you are diagnosed with an asbestos related disease, it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.
We are experts in asbestos disease claims, with proven experience in getting people the compensation they are entitled to.
