Former Dockyard worker? Suffering from Mesothelioma?
US Trust Compensation Claims could be open to you.
It has been a well-known fact for many years that employees who have contracted an asbestos related illness through exposure to asbestos at work can pursue a claim against their employer, but did you know that in some circumstances it is also possible to pursue further claims in the United States?
Former Dockyard employees who were exposed to asbestos during the 1950s and 1960s could be entitled to compensation from trust funds which have been set up in the USA. These trust funds exist to pay compensation to those who may have been exposed to American asbestos whilst working in the dockyard. If you are suffering from mesothelioma and worked in the dockyard at any point in the 1950s-60s then we can investigate your potential US Trust Fund claim.
There are a variety of different Trusts which offer compensation, and it could well be the case that a claim could be brought against more than one trust fund.
The possibility of a US claim could also be open to the family of a former dockyard worker who has suffered from mesothelioma but has sadly passed away within the last 3 years.
Wolferstans solicitors are specialists at running all asbestos related cases due to their prominence in the local community, their local knowledge of the Dockyard and the excessive historical use of asbestos within the South West, which has resulted in hundreds of successful cases.
If you, a friend, or someone within your family worked at the dockyard and was exposed to any asbestos at all, then we can check for free to see if there is a potential claim, either in the UK or through the American trust funds. We can also help if you/they are suffering from breathlessness, fatigue, a persistent cough or a tight chest, following any previous employment where asbestos was present. It is essential that you contact a specialist solicitor who can assist you in obtaining the financial compensation to which you are entitled, helping you to pay for any care that you may need.
Asbestos was historically widely used in the UK and sadly, many builders, boilermakers, plumbers, carpenters, electricians and other trades were often exposed to its harmful deadly dust. Given the wide use of asbestos in many hospitals, factories, offices, universities and colleges, shops and other large buildings, claims often succeed for those who have worked in these settings too.
Members of the armed forces suffering with asbestos related mesothelioma can claim a large lump sum payment from the armed forces compensation scheme and sometimes are also eligible to claim extremely lucrative sums through the US courts, via our connections with a New York based attorney.
Servicemen and women who suffer damage to their hearing due to excessive noise can also contact us for advice, as they are often eligible to bring a claim.
