In 2016, the London Asbestos Support Awareness Group (LASAG) was set up to help people diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases from across London and the South East.

Thompsons Solicitors is proud to show its support to the London Asbestos Support and Awareness Group by fundraising for its essential work, campaigning alongside its officers and providing free, expert legal advice on making a claim for asbestos-related diseases including mesothelioma claims, asbestosis claims, asbestos-related lung cancer claims and pleural thickening claims.

The LASAG services are coordinated and delivered by fully-qualified former specialist lung cancer nurses who combined have decades of experience supporting and signposting people who have been diagnosed with an asbestos disease to appropriate sources of advice and care.

Completely free, the LASAG service offers:

  • Free guidance to those newly-diagnosed.
  • Home visits to check on patients’ progress.
  • Support groups for sufferers to meet each other.
  • Advice on contacting specialist asbestos lawyers about making asbestos compensation claims.

Thompsons Solicitors supports thousands of trade union members who are diagnosed with asbestos diseases as a result of historic exposure to asbestos each and every year. Each month, we secure millions of pounds in compensation for families affected by an asbestos disease diagnosis; our asbestos lawyers’ priority is always to signpost families to appropriate sources of support while proactively progressing the claim to secure the maximum amount of compensation as quickly as possible.
