The basics of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a disease that attacks the pleural lining, along with the surrounding tissues, lungs heart and other organs. These cancerous cells are difficult to treat and are often a very serious type of cancer, which means that fast tracking your claim or the claim of a family member is often essential.

If you're claiming on behalf of a family member, you may want to consider getting documentation to help them handle their claim.

Choosing a firm with experience

Like any other personal claim, you should choose a group with experience in chasing down the claims that you're making. One of the best ways to do so is to ensure that you've chosen a company that has a past history of settling claims well; otherwise you might not be using the best team for your needs. It's critical at every juncture to ensure that you are kept up to date and have all of the information regarding your claim at all times. Many firms, once contracted, can be paid with legal insurance or will work on a no win-no fee basis, but you should ensure that you understand how this works, and if in any doubt at all, ask for support from your local CAB or other support organisation.

Referrals through charities

One of the ways you could find a team to support you with your mesothelioma claim is to ask the charity or support group you're working with for a referral. They might be able to offer you information and support based on their experiences, or may know of a group that has a well proven track record, without creating an additional burden on you while you're working on recovering from your initial diagnosis.
