Asbestos/mesothelioma compensation lawyers

Accredited Asbestos Disease Specialists

Asbestos and mesothelioma

APIL has a specialist accreditation for asbestos and mesothelioma claims. If an APIL member’s profile displays the specialist accreditation logo it shows that they have achieved a particularly high standard of expertise and competence and that they actually specialise in this area of the law. However, due to the specialised nature of this accreditation we may not have a member with specialist accreditation in your area.

If an APIL member’s profile does not display the asbestos disease specialist logo they will still be accredited by APIL, so will have satisfied APIL’s specific and extensive criteria by providing evidence of their competency and experience in handling personal injury claims.

People who have been exposed to asbestos will be unaware of any damage to their health until they experience symptoms many years later. Asbestos has been linked to many illnesses, some of which are very serious.

As many symptoms generally appear years after the exposure to asbestos it is common for people to make a claim long after their employment has ceased. Asbestos exposure can also occur outside of work for instance from overalls or from neighbouring factories.

If you have an illness resulting from exposure to asbestos at work, you have the right to seek compensation. Asbestos related illness compensation can help provide financially for those with lifelong illnesses. Only accredited injury lawyers specialising in asbestos illnesses are listed on this page.
