Have you or someone you love contracted a disease such as mesothelioma or asbestosis as a result of exposure to asbestos?
If you have, and if that exposure was caused, at least in part, by the negligence, recklessness or unreasonable conduct of another person, employer or organisation, then you could be entitled to some compensation for your pain, suffering, losses and expenses.

For example, how long does the process take, what is required of you, how will you find evidence and how much compensation are you likely to receive?
