Thompsons solicitors south east asbestos team successfully concluded mesothelioma cases during June
Thompsons Solicitors’ asbestos specialists in the south east of England region have successfully secured hundreds of thousands of pounds compensation for mesothelioma clients during June.
Expert asbestos disease solicitors based in the firm’s offices in south east England settled mesothelioma cases, securing six-figure sums on behalf of each clients.
Mesothelioma is a fatal form of asbestos-related cancer. The disease is caused by breathing in asbestos dust and can take decades to develop. Mesothelioma is commonly associated with occupations such as carpentry and construction, where asbestos was regularly used.
Solicitor, Lorna Webster, head of the south east regional asbestos team at Thompsons Solicitors, said: “While there is little to comfort those devastated by mesothelioma, we work hard to obtain full compensation quickly so that they are financially secure.
“Mesothelioma, like other asbestos diseases, can take decades to develop and requires specialist expertise to trace former employers and their insurers to being a claim against the company responsible for exposing the client to asbestos.
“Our specialist teams have access to a wealth of evidence and meticulously investigate the client’s employment history to identify where when the asbestos exposure occurred. This enables us to successfully pursue claims for people who are suffering from asbestos disease today.”
Below are examples of positive client feedback for the Thompsons Solicitors’ south east regional asbestos team in June:

“I am very pleased with the help, guidance and support received during my claim. Lorna Webster and her team have been extremely helpful and sensitive to my needs during this case. I would certainly recommend Thompsons’ Solicitors.” Mr L. Thompsons’ asbestos disease client
