Thompsons established the first ever successful case for asbestos disease compensation in 1972, and has been involved in every major test case since.
Each year, around 2,500 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma (sometimes referred to as ‘meso’), a fatal form of cancer which is caused by asbestos.
Mesothelioma takes a long time to develop, often 40 years or more for symptoms to show. It is a devastating reminder of the UK’s legacy of asbestos. If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma and would like to make a compensation claim, your union legal service is here to help.
Thompsons has specialist asbestos lawyers who are wholly committed to helping trade union members and their families to bring cases for compensation after a mesothelioma diagnosis.
We have long track record, second to none, of tracing employers and insurance companies and holding them to account on behalf of recently-diagnosed trade union members, or the families who have lost loved ones due to mesothelioma in the last three years.
