Asbestos Claims Lawyers Glasgow, Scotland

Asbestos is a building material that was widely used in the construction of buildings in the UK until the 1980s when it was recognised as dangerous and was subsequently banned. It causes a number of different diseases, many of which have a poor prognosis. In a lot of cases, the illness will only become known to the sufferer decades after they were in contact with the material. For that reason and the fact that lots of buildings still have asbestos in them, claims for compensation for diseases caused by asbestos continue to rise. At Jones Whyte Law, our dedicated personal injury team specialises in asbestos claims and we are passionate about getting you the compensation you deserve.

Asbestos-Related Diseases

At Jones Whyte, out solicitors assist with claims relating to many asbestos-related conditions, including:

  • mesothelioma;
  • lung cancer;
  • asbestosis;
  • pleural thickening; and
  • pleural plaques.

While in England and Wales it is prohibited to bring claims for pleural thickening and pleural plaques, in Scotland, legislation was passed expressly allowing these claims to continue.

The team at Jones Whyte help with the following claims:

  • those brought by construction workers directly exposed to asbestos fibres;
  • those brought for secondary exposure in the home or family environment; and
  • those brought by the loved ones of someone who passed away due to an asbestos-related disease.

How to Bring a Claim with Asbestos Claims Solicitors in Glasgow, Scotland

Symptoms of asbestos-related diseases can take many years to show up, which is why the time limit for bringing legal proceedings for an asbestos claim runs from the date that you discover you are suffering from a disease as a result of exposure to the material. You have three years to bring a claim from that date.

The experienced solicitors at Jones Whyte can pursue any employer who we can show to have materially contributed to your condition. Even where they have folded or ceased trading, we can pursue by tracing their employers’ liability insurance.

We will guide you through the process, from collecting all the evidence for your claim, valuing your claim based on our experience and the guidelines for these cases, to negotiating a satisfactory settlement that takes account of your suffering and losses. We understand how difficult it can be to come to terms with an asbestos-related diagnoses. We will work tirelessly to get you the answers and compensation owed to you.
