With any potential compensation claim, you are bound to have a few questions to ask, so we have compiled the most common ones for you.

Do I have a claim?

We make this process as simple as possible. All you need to do is give us a few details for our expert solicitors to assess whether your condition and the circumstances around it make you eligible for compensation. Contact us today to find out more.

How much compensation should I expect to receive?

All cases are different. There are often two sets of damages or two parts to the compensation:

1. Special damages which include claims for out of pocket expenses such as loss of earnings and the cost of care.
2. General damages which cover pain and suffering.

Who will actually be dealing with my claim?

Your claim will be handled by one of our expert solicitors. Contact us today on 0800 038 6767 to start the process.

Am I entitled to any government benefits as a result of my condition?

You may be entitled to Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit or to a one-off lump sum payment under the Pneumoconiosis Etc (Workers’ Compensation) Act 1979. Contact us for further information and assistance in completing the relevant forms.

Will I have to go to Court?

This is very unlikely. The vast majority of cases are settled before a trial.

Are there any hidden fees I’ll need to pay?

No. Our solicitors will enter an Agreement with you which may include an insurance policy to protect you against any costs.
