Experts in Asbestos Related Disease

If you have been exposed to asbestos during the course of your employment, even if the employment was many years ago and you have since retired, this can have significant consequences for your health. The asbestos fibres, if breathed in, can cause damage to the lungs; even the smallest exposure to asbestos can cause illness.

  • Construction;
  • Plumbers;
  • Joiners;
  • Engineers; and
  • Dockyard workers

  • Shortness of breath/tightness in your chest
  • Persistent dry cough and wheezing
  • Chest pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue

At Williamsons, we have considerable experience in winning asbestos-related cases for our clients. Our friendly team can help get you the compensation you deserve and need.

The following are examples of the types of asbestos related disease, in respect of which we can assist:

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with any of these conditions, or indeed anything else as a direct result of working with asbestos, you have a right to pursue a claim for compensation.

Our experienced team can investigate asbestos exposure even if the company under which you were exposed to asbestos has since stopped trading.

A claim can be brought by the person who has suffered the exposure to asbestos, during their lifetime; it is however often the case that the person who has suffered the asbestos related disease has since died. In such circumstances, a claim can be pursued by the loved ones of the Deceased, both on behalf of the estate of the Deceased and on behalf of those who were dependent upon them.

We can discuss your case with a free initial consultation to understand your concerns, which may include taking forward your claim on a ‘NO WIN NO FEE’ basis.

No Win No Fee
We work on a conditional fee basis, ensuring you don’t have to worry about legal costs if your claim is unsuccessful.

Timeframe for bringing a claim
You usually have 3 years from the date of diagnosis of the asbestos related disease in which to make a claim. If you are looking to claim on behalf of a loved one who has sadly died due to asbestos related disease, you usually have 3 years from the date of death.
