Mesothelioma Compensation Claims Lawyers Glasgow, Scotland

Mesothelioma is the most serious of all asbestos-related conditions. It is a form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos particles and, as yet, there is no cure. It can take up to fifty years after you were first exposed to asbestos for the mesothelioma to properly develop. People who work in the construction industry are at a higher risk of exposure to asbestos.

Mesothelioma is caused when asbestos fibres are breathed in and then work their way to the pleura, the membrane that protects the lungs from damage, causing changes, which, it is thought, results in cancerous cells. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos you are likely to be entitled to claim for compensation. Contact the expert solicitors at Jones Whyte today for sensitive and practical advice on what to do next. 

Claiming Compensation for Mesothelioma in Scotland

Broadly, there are three different types of mesothelioma:

  • pleural mesothelioma, which affects the lungs;
  • peritoneal mesothelioma, which affects the lining of the abdomen; and
  • pericardial mesothelioma, which develops in the membrane surrounding the heart.

If you are suffering from mesothelioma, you can bring a claim where:

  • you found out about the disease at some point in the last three years;
  • it is due to your former employer having failed to take adequate steps to protect you from asbestos; and
  • the insurance company that insured your former employer can be traced.

While men are more likely to contract mesothelioma because asbestos was used in traditionally male-oriented work environments, other family members can be at risk of secondary asbestos exposure, for example where they inhaled fibres on clothing or other items belonging to someone who had come into contact with the material.

When it comes to mesothelioma claims, the person who is suffering the disease can make a claim and the family of the person who contracted the disease can also bring a claim. The specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte can help you with your claim, whether you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma yourself or you are a close relative of someone suffering from the disease.
