What Can I Do If The Person Has Passed Away?Find out how you can make a successful Mesothelioma claim even if the sufferer is deceased
What can I do if the person has passed away?
Sadly this is a question that we get asked all too often. Mesothelioma can develop and progress extremely rapidly so it is common for the family of sufferers not to seek legal advice until after a loved one has passed away and the search for both answers and justice begins. While nothing we can say or do will ever make up for your loss, we can try to make sure that the families that are left behind are at least looked after financially so that they can come to terms with their grief without money worries playing a part.
Do not worry if you don’t know too much about the sufferers past work history, it is our job to try and piece together the evidence and discover who was to blame for the past asbestos exposure.
We do this in a number of ways including:
- Enquiries to the Tax Office to establish the full working history
- Obtaining and studying the full medical records to see if asbestos history was ever discussed
- Liaising with the Coroners Office to see if we can assist one another in establishing the guilty exposure
- Contacting family, friends and former work colleagues
- Researching previous workplaces for any evidence of asbestos related incidences
The sooner you speak to us the more chance there will be that we will be able to track down the cause of the exposure. In some cases this may have occurred as far back as 50 or 60 years ago and could in fact even relate to the victims school days when asbestos was routinely used in school buildings which often were in a poos state of repair.
Our no win no fee service covers the families of Mesothelioma sufferers as well as the individual themselves so contact us now free of charge and without obligation to see if we can help.
