Asbestos Compensation Claims

If you’ve been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness, we can help you make an asbestos compensation claim.

A diagnosis of an asbestos-related disease will almost always come as a complete shock, because it will have been many years since you were exposed to asbestos.

Our specialist asbestos solicitors understand that it can be a difficult diagnosis for you and your family. We can support you by putting you in touch with asbestos support groups that will help you claim benefits, and we can also help you seek compensation for your illness.

We understand that no amount of money can ever give you back your health, however it can provide financial security for you and your family at this difficult time.

We're here to help you

Our asbestos disease experts are on hand to talk through your case and provide free, no-obligation legal advice.

Expert asbestos solicitors

Thompsons won the first-ever asbestos compensation case brought to the House of Lords back in 1972. Since then, we have been involved in every major fight against the asbestos insurance industry.

No legal fees

When you make an asbestos claim with Thompsons, we provide you with legal advice and representation entirely free of charge – whether you win or lose.

The only charge we have to pass on to you by law is for an insurance policy to underwrite your claim. The cost of this insurance policy is paid from your award if you win your claim. If you do not win your claim, then you do not pay for the insurance.

If you are a trade union member, or if you were a member at the time of your asbestos exposure, you can make your claim through your union’s legal service. They will cover your insurance costs, meaning your claim is entirely free of charge.
