What is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is the most severe of all the asbestos related diseases. It is a cancer, of which there is currently no cure that is caused by exposure to asbestos fibres.
It can take decades for Mesothelioma to develop and display symptoms. Therefore, the signs of Mesothelioma may not show until 50 years after a person has initially been exposed to asbestos.
Different types of Mesothelioma
There are three different types of mesothelioma:
- Pleural Mesothelioma – most common form of mesothelioma affecting the lungs
- Peritoneal Mesothelioma – affects the lining of the abdomen
- Pericardial Mesothelioma – develops in the membrane surrounding the heart
Damages for family members
The level of damages awarded in Scotland can be significantly higher than those in England & Wales. In fatal cases, there are a wide range of relatives including siblings and grandparents that are able to obtain damages. A person diagnosed with Mesothelioma can resolve their own claim during their lifetime and the bereaved relatives can seek damages after their death.
You and members of your family may be entitled to receive a payment and we can advise you how to do this and help you and members of your family during a very difficult time.
If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, you may be entitled to claim compensation to cover your pain and suffering, care expenses and loss of earnings or pension, to name but a few.
