Thompsons’ specialist asbestos litigation team obtained £1.6 million in compensation for clients during April
Thompsons Solicitors secured more than £1.6 million in compensation for asbestos disease clients last month.
During April alone, Thompsons Solicitors’ specialist asbestos litigation lawyers, based across England and Wales, secured £1.6 million in compensation for clients suffering from mesothelioma, asbestosis, diffuse pleural thickening and asbestos-related lung cancer.
Thompsons Solicitors has an established reputation as the leading firm for asbestos litigation since bringing the first ever successful case for asbestos-related disease in the House of Lords in 1972.
Ian McFall, head of asbestos litigation at Thompsons Solicitors, said: “Asbestos exposure is the single greatest cause of work-related deaths in the UK, and at Thompsons we are proud to act on for clients affected by asbestos diseases.
“While we understand that no amount of compensation can ease the devastation of a mesothelioma diagnosis, our expert legal teams work swiftly and sensitively to ensure our clients’ care and financial needs are met by securing the maximum amount of compensation in the shortest possible time.”
"Thank you so very much for your advice, help, understanding and patience and making our journey easier through these past few months. So very much appreciated by us all [...] A big thank you again"
Asbestos disease diagnosis? Talk to us for advice and support on how to secure compensation.
If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, we can support you with advice on how to make a claim.
The process will be explained in plain English and with no obligation – our priority is to provide you with the best, expert advice on whether you have a valid case for compensation, and to signpost you to further sources of support.
There are strict time limits applied to making a claim – usually three years from the date of diagnosis. It doesn’t matter if the exposure to asbestos took place – as it often does – decades ago, the three year time limit applies to the date of knowledge of diagnosis or date of death.
