Asbestos Disease advice at home
Once you have spoken to us on the phone, you may want to meet one of our Solicitors face-to-face before deciding whether to proceed.
Sometimes meeting at home is the best option for you. Our extensive experience with asbestos disease means that we understand you may just not be able to travel to our offices. If your injuries mean that we need to travel to see you then you are entitled to claim the cost of this travel from them.
So we are happy to meet you in your home – and if you need to stay in your dressing gown, or even remain in bed, please be reassured that we will do what makes you comfortable and fit in with your hospital, doctor and other treatment appointments.
The important thing is that we can discuss your case and claim, and to talk about what we can do to help you, your wife or your partner and family. We can do that at your pace, over a cup of tea.
We should have a good idea if a claim is possible, and what we can do to help you, based on our telephone conversation or your submitted online form.
After we’ve discussed all aspects of your situation, and answered your questions, we will assess your entitlement to compensation.
We believe that this is the fairest approach. If we feel that we cannot deliver on a commitment to you to run your asbestos disease claim, then we will be honest, and tell you what steps you can take next.
We have succeed on claims for exposure as long ago as the 1950’s, you are still entitled to bring a claim even if the exposure was many years ago.
We’re happy to say 95% of our clients do decide to work with us after the first meeting on a No Win No Fee basis. Despite the Political spin, No Win No Fee agreements remain the best way for a Claimant to pursue an Asbestos claim. Clients find our Solicitors very helpful and easy to work with – and it’s important to have a good relationship with the people you are trusting with such an important matter. We believe that all clients should know their Solicitor.

- We contact your old colleagues and work friends.
- We follow the Asbestos Disease Personal Injury Protocol for notifying the claim.

No-Win-No-Fee Asbestos Disease Claims
After our initial meeting we will refine the details of the claim and ensure that you are receiving the best possible client care. If you have any questions at any stage just ask – you should understand exactly what is happening every step of the way.
We encourage all our clients to question us so that you understand what we are trying to achieve for you.
Meeting You in Hospital
We are happy to visit you or your family or any friend to discuss asbestos disease compensation claims whilst you are in hospital. Please don’t feel embarrassed to invite us to visit you there – we really do understand how it is, and we’re very used to seeing clients whilst they are undergoing treatment.
Often the first time an asbestos disease is diagnosed is when you are in the hospital for checks on your breathing problems.
It is generally at this point that we are called upon to help. We provide practical, down to earth, free advice in the hospital about what could and should be done now to help move your claim forward and achieve fast compensation and damages.
We can help with:
- A Will
- Taking a Witness Statement from you
