Mesothelioma compensation claims

Around 200 people in Scotland are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year, an asbestos-related cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos dust.

We have helped many people suffering from Mesothelioma and their families secure rightful compensation by raising claims against former employers.

Our specialist mesothelioma solicitors understand the impact an asbestos relates illness can have on people and their families. We meet face to face with our clients and offer one to one contact with our team. We have significant experience in litigating mesothelioma claims for both people exposed through their workplace, and others exposed through other ways such as washing a partners clothing.

If you, or a family member, has developed mesothelioma, call us on 0141 352 6215 to find out how we can help.

How does asbestos exposure cause Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma affects the linings of the lungs or abdomen. It is caused by exposure to asbestos dust - when a person breathes in asbestos fibres, these can work their way into the pleura, which is the membrane which protects the lungs from damage by the ribs during the act of breathing.  The asbestos fibres can damage the pleura’s cells and can cause changes which, it is thought, make them into cancerous cells.

How much exposure would cause Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma can be caused by relatively low exposure to asbestos dust but the higher the level of exposure, the higher the risk of developing mesothelioma.  Symptoms of mesothelioma include breathlessness, chest pains and tiredness.

Like asbestosis, it can be many years (up to 40 years in some cases) between a person being exposed to mesothelioma and their symptoms developing, though any exposure up to ten years before the start of the symptoms can have caused the illness.

Beginning a mesothelioma compensation claim in Scotland

We understand that making a mesothelioma compensation claim may be the last thing on your mind. However, if you have been exposed to asbestos and developed mesothelioma as a result, you are entitled to compensation in Scotland.

Mary Campbell contracted mesothelioma by washing her ex-partners clothes. He was exposed to asbestos at work and his work clothes were covered in asbestos dust. Mary used to wash his clothes by hand, resulting years later in mesothelioma.

Our mesothelioma solicitors were able to successfully secure compensation for Mary which has helped Mary purchase an automatic car making it easier for her to drive and put in a stair lift and bathroom modifications like a walk in shower to help her stay mobile.
