'No Fault' Payments for Asbestos-Related Diseases

Asbestos-Related Compensation

Asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, asbestos-related lung cancer and pleural thickening can take between 20 to 40 years or more to develop after the initial exposure to asbestos. When symptoms occur, prompt medical advice should always be obtained.

Specialising In Fighting Asbestos-Related Claims

Clear Answers’ solicitors have succeeded in thousands of asbestos compensation claims where it has been possible to identify the negligent employer(s) and / or trace their insurers. However, sometimes even after making extensive enquiries, this is just not possible, because the company has gone out of business and either did not have insurance or the insurer cannot be found.

Strict time limits apply to making a claim for any type of industrial disease, including asbestos-related diseases, so please contact an experienced solicitor as soon as you think you may have a claim for asbestos-related compensation.

If one of the asbestos-related diseases named above is diagnosed, it may be possible to make a claim for asbestos-related compensation. By this time, the employer or other organisations responsible for causing the negligent asbestos exposure may have ceased to trade or been taken over by other companies. In many cases, it is still possible to obtain compensation if the insurers can be traced.

Please visit our section on information and advice for more details on making a personal injury compensation claim.

Pneumoconiosis (Workers Compensation) Act 1979

Where it is not possible to make a claim against a former employer or insurer it may still be possible to obtain compensation in the form of State Benefits from schemes administered by the Government.

A claim may be made in certain circumstances for a lump sum payment under the Pneumoconiosis (Workers Compensation) Act 1979. From October 2008, when Part 4 of the Child Maintenance & Other Payments Bill becomes law, an up front lump sum benefit will become available to everyone diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Other “no-fault” State funded payments, such as Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit may be claimed from the DWP for certain prescribed asbestos-related conditions.
