If you are claiming on behalf of a relative who died from Mesothelioma, you have 3 years from the date your relative passed away.
The manufacturers of asbestos-containing products knew the health risks of asbestos decades before the public did. Instead of keeping people safe, these companies put profits first and actively concealed evidence that asbestos was dangerous. Eventually, the truth came out and these manufacturers faced thousands of claims from victims who developed mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.

M&P Commentary

Martyn Trenerry, a specialist in personal injury claims, said:

“If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma we are here to help. Asbestos related diseases can progress quickly. It is not always possible to conclude a claim during the lifetime of the claimant. In those circumstances it may be possible to pursue a claim on behalf of their family members who are dependent on the claimants income and services such as household maintenance, gardening and childcare.”
