Who Can Develop Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a cancer that’s nearly always caused by asbestos exposure. As a result, it’s most common amongst people who have worked in or lived near to industries which utilise asbestos, such as manufacturing, construction, aerospace and ship building, and also in workers who would’ve been regularly exposed to asbestos dust and/or fibres.

Specific trades where mesothelioma cases are common include plumbers, carpenters and electricians.

A person may also develop mesothelioma if they simply work in a building where asbestos is present and has been disturbed. As a result, many people with mesothelioma may be diagnosed with the condition without ever being aware that they were exposed to asbestos.

People can also develop mesothelioma where a family member brings home traces of asbestos dust or fibres on their clothing or footwear. We refer to this as ‘secondary exposure’ and quite often a claim can still be made for those suffering because of such exposure.

How Simpson Millar Can Help You

Our Industrial Disease Solicitors are specialists in carrying out detailed investigations into when and where people diagnosed with mesothelioma may have been exposed to asbestos. Since mesothelioma can take decades to develop, people with mesothelioma often can’t be sure exactly where the exposure took place, and therefore who is liable to pay compensation.

However, we have considerable experience in investigating the potential source of asbestos exposure, and even if the employer responsible is no longer trading, we can still make mesothelioma claims against their historic insurance companies. If we’re unable to trace their insurer, we may still be able to make a claim on your behalf through a UK government compensation scheme.

We’ll also look at whether you’re eligible for Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB) – a benefit provided by the state. Most people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma are eligible and will receive £179 per week, backdated to the date they received their mesothelioma diagnosis.

We can also help you apply for a lump sum from the government where IIDB is awarded and the amount will depend upon your age at diagnosis.

We understand that claiming compensation for mesothelioma can be complex, overwhelming and distressing. But we’re committed to providing clear and practical legal advice about your rights, and giving regular updates so you always know what’s going in with your claim.
