Mesothelioma compensation claims
Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the internal organs, almost exclusively linked to asbestos exposure. If you or a loved one has contracted mesothelioma following exposure to asbestos dust, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. The Hugh James specialist mesothelioma team is hugely experienced in helping people affected by mesothelioma, and we’re passionate about fighting for compensation and benefits for our clients.

How can Hugh James help me?
Our specialist mesothelioma team can help mesothelioma patients access financial support from the government (link to our benefits specific page), as well as looking into a legal claim for compensation. Any legal claim would be brought against the entity responsible for exposing you to asbestos dust, which is most commonly a former employer but may also be the owner of a building through which you came into contact with asbestos. If the entity responsibility is no longer trading, then claims can be brought against their insurers, instead.
