What do I have to gain by contacting a solicitor?
Not everyone with an asbestos-related disease will be entitled to civil compensation, but many will. You will not know unless you get advice from a solicitor experience in this area of the law.
If the employer that exposed you to asbestos is no longer trading, your solicitor may still be able to bring a civil claim against that employer’s insurer.
Civil compensation, by its very nature, tends to be worth far more than benefits paid by the government. Civil compensation can be paid alongside almost all government benefits.
How much will it cost me?
If you have mesothelioma, none of the solicitors we recommend will charge you. If they tell you that you do not have a case, or if they lose your case, you do not have to pay anything. If they win your case, their fee does not come out of your compensation, but is recovered from the other side.
If you have a different asbestos-related disease, all of the solicitors we recommend work on a no-win no-fee basis.
GMAVSG abides by the Solicitors Regulation
Authority Referral Code.
We provide a list of solicitors who are experts in asbestos litigation and who act only for claimants. We never provide one solicitor selected from the list. We always provide the list in full for clients to choose from, if they wish to do so. We never contact any solicitor on behalf of our clients. We explain clearly that we receive an annual charitable donation from the solicitors on the list, which is not based on referrals to solicitors. We never refer any of our clients to solicitors. We provide a transparent and clear explanation of how we abide by the Referral Code to all our clients.
