Help Make a Claim for Compensation

At Russell Worth solicitors our team is experienced in handling Mesothelioma claims. Mesothelioma is a type of cancer which is almost always caused by occupational exposure to asbestos. This form of cancer, which is mainly found in the lungs, is caused by toxic chemicals creating a thickening of the lining of the lungs (knows as the pleura) which develops into a tumor. This disease has health debilitating side effects such as:


  • Chest pain
  • Breathlessness
  • Coughing
  • Back pain
  • Wheezing
  • Loss of appetite and severe weight loss
  • Build up of fluid (known as pleural effusion)

While no-one ever wants to be told that they have suffered asbestos damage to their lungs there is no question at all that the diagnosis all asbestos workers fear above all others is that of mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer almost always associated with asbestos exposure and sadly those diagnosed with the complaint face a very bleak prognosis. Whilst there are exceptions to every rule, generally speaking mesothelioma tends to take the lives of its victims within 12 months of its onset and at present there is no cure for the condition. As the disease is so aggressive it is vital that the solicitor you instruct to help with your case is a specialist in asbestosis claims and thankfully Russell Worth solicitors has just such solicitors ready and waiting.

Mesothelioma sufferers know that time is not on their side and the majority of those we assist find great comfort in knowing that their loved ones will be financially secure thanks to the expertise of our solicitors. As with all asbestos related conditions, the greater your exposure to asbestos over the years the higher the chances are that it will cause some damage but what makes mesothelioma so worrying is that one single asbestos particle can cause the condition. You may have only come into contact with asbestos dust once in your entire life but that could be sufficient to cause mesothelioma. Our expert solicitors know full well the dangers of asbestos and will piece together your works history in order to identify the employer or employers responsible and pursue them on your behalf. Sometimes mesothelioma isn’t identified until the sufferer has passed away and post-mortem results are obtained. In such cases a compensation claim can still be brought by the next of kin and legal action should be started within three years of the date of death.

Our solicitors are able to offer assistance to the family of deceased mesothelioma victims, with no up front fees, not even if the claim for mesothelioma is unsuccessful through no fault of your own.
