As part of my January home series, I am sharing with you awesome products, recipes, crafts, home buying tips, and more. But what happens if you were exposed to asbestos over the years through your workplace, home or other environment? Since this is becoming a more and more common problem, I thought I would share how to file an asbestos compensation claim.
If you have been diagnosed with lung cancer, mesothelioma, or asbestosis and have knowingly worked with asbestos, or suspect that you have worked with it in the past then you should consult a qualified professional, such as a lawyer, to discuss a potential asbestosis compensation claim. There are a number of potential causes of lung cancer, including smoking and passive smoking, but if you have contracted asbestosis or mesothelioma then it is almost certainly due to exposure to the fibrous asbestos material.
How to get started:
1. Contacting A Professional Accident Claims Layer
Consult with a professional accident claims solicitor as soon as you have been diagnosed. They will be able to discuss your options and determine what should be done in order to progress with your claim. You will need to provide details of when you may have worked with this dangerous mineral and which company you were working for at the time. You will also need to present medical details and you will be asked to give permission to use your medical records.
2. Claiming Against A Company
You are able to make a claim even if the company that you worked for thirty years ago no longer exists. Diseases like mesothelioma are extremely serious and debilitating and it is vital that you act in order to ensure that you have the appropriate level of compensation so that you and your family can afford everything that you require.
3. Benefit From Experience
Using an experienced accident claims lawyer is important because an asbestos compensation claim is a highly specific form of negligence claim. In the vast majority of cases, it will mean claiming compensation from a former employer although there are other possibilities and other possible occasions when you have been exposed to the material. By talking this through with your solicitor you will be able to enjoy a greater chance of compensation claim success.
