Our primary function as asbestos claim solicitors is to ensure you receive the most comprehensive damages award possible in relation to your asbestos related disease. We aim to do this in the shortest amount of time and to remove as much of the stress as possible about making a claim.

At Thompsons we realise that being diagnosed with an asbestos related disease will have a devastating effect, not only on you, but on your family as well, so we also work hard to make sure you and your family members receive as much assistance as you need from specialist support groups and medical experts who can provide help, information and resources.

Action on Asbestos (Formerly Clydeside Action on Asbestos)

We are proud to have forged a strong relationship with Action on Asbestos (AoA), the Scottish charity that works tirelessly to provide a network of services for people who have been affected by asbestos.

As well as campaigning for changes to legislation and providing financial support for a number of asbestos-related health services, the charity provides a crucial hub for asbestos victims across Scotland.

How we can help

Our primary function as asbestos claim solicitors is, of course, to ensure you receive the most comprehensive damages award as possible, in the smallest space of time. Due to the long latency periods associated with asbestos disease, claims can be complex and it may take time to establish the whereabouts of those with liability, especially if your employer has ceased trading.

However, through our years of experience we have built up a thorough knowledge of this field and have access to a wide-ranging database of employers and insurers who could be responsible for your illness. Our records also include details of witnesses and records of ships, sites and locations where asbestos was used.

One call to our specialist asbestos lawyers and we will point you in the right direction to help you get the support you and your family need.  Call 0800 0891 331 today and speak to our specialist asbestos lawyers.
