At Mercury Legal Online, we will check against previous cases to determine roughly how much compensation you may be entitled to receive as a result of your claim with us.

General damages – This is the compensation for the actual condition itself. Typically in Mesothelioma cases the general damages will be up to £100,000.

Special damages – The award of special damages will vary from case to case as they are very specific to the individuals circumstances.

Special damages can include a multitude of different categories including but not restricted to:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of pension
  • Care costs
  • Home adaptations or in some cases the costs of moving to a more suitable property
  • Travel and transportation costs
  • Private medical treatment
  • Home maintenance and DIY costs
  • Dependency costs (if supporting a spouse and/or children)

Special damages awards have no monetary restrictions as such and each award is calculated on the sufferers individual circumstances. Awards running into many hundreds of thousands of pounds and beyond are routinely made by the Courts.
