Mesothelioma claim specialist solicitors

At Poole Townsend, we deal with personal accident and injury claims, clinical negligence, and also a number of industrial disease cases. These are mostly asbestos-related illnesses following the legacy of the shipbuilding industry in our area.

We offer support and guidance on claiming compensation and on local and national support groups and charities that can support your recovery. One such charity is Mesothelioma UK, a national specialist resource centre for asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma is cancer that affects the mesothelium. This is a thin membrane that lines the inner surface of the chest wall, abdomen, and intestines. It can also affect the organs within these cavities such as the heart, lungs and intestines. Over 2,700 are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year, with the condition more common in men than women.

Mesothelioma UK provides specialist information, support, and education. It integrates into frontline NHS services to ensure specialist nursing is available at the point of need. The charity, with a number of strategic partners, funds a network of 34 specialist nurses regionally based in NHS hospitals. They also offer a support line, specialist benefits advisors, and travel grants for the cost of accessing clinical trials.

The charity's role is to support those affected by mesothelioma their families and carers. They also look to raise awareness of the disease within the healthcare profession, and promote better management or removal of asbestos.

Our experience of handling mesothelioma compensation claims is growing each year. Recent statistics highlight that Barrow has three times more asbestos deaths than the national average.

The claims process in these types of cases can be lengthy with much negotiation required with the employer’s insurance company. Charities like Mesothelioma UK can offer much-needed support as our specialist solicitors take care of the legal aspects.

In most industrial injury cases we can offer to work on a No Win – No Fee basis. If you or a family member has been exposed to asbestos at work, get in touch with our team.
