What is an Asbestos Disease?
Asbestos-related diseases affect thousands of individuals and their families each year.
There are several different types of asbestos-related disease, with each condition varying in severity. We specialise in a range of asbestos disease claims including pleural thickening, mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
Asbestos diseases are caused by the inhalation of asbestos dust and can take decades to develop. Symptoms, treatment and a patient’s prognosis can vary according to the type of asbestos disease a person is suffering from.
Thompsons brought the UK's first ever successful case for asbestos-related disease in the House of Lords in 1972. We have established a reputation as the leading firm of asbestos litigation solicitors.
Our solicitors resolutely pursue compensation claims against employers and insurance companies for clients who suffer from asbestos-related diseases. We will support you through every step of your asbestos compensation claim, providing expert legal advice, as well as access to a network of support services and medical professionals.
