Asbestos-Related Disease Claims Guide

How Much Does It Cost To Make An Asbestos Claim?

If you’re making a claim for asbestos-related illness, you don’t need to worry about any legal costs – our lawyers will consider a variety of funding options for your claim and recommend which one we think is best for you.

Most of our claims are funded on a No Win No Fee basis – there aren’t any costs up front and there’s nothing to pay if you lose*. We’re always clear when it comes to our pricing and will explain our costs before we start working on your case.

If you’re making a mesothelioma claim, we can always guarantee that you’ll receive 100% of your compensation**.

What Options Are There For Funding A Claim?

There are a number of methods available to fund your asbestos-related disease claim, these include:

  • No Win No Fee – also known as conditional fee agreements (CFAs)
  • Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) – this can be part of your household or car insurance
  • Trade Union – members of trade unions can receive funding for some legal issues

We’ll always discuss these options in detail with you, making sure that you’re comfortable with proceedings going forward.

Can I Make A No Win No Fee Claim?

Most of the cases our asbestos solicitors handle are on a No Win No Fee basis, which means that you can make a claim without having to worry about legal costs*.

In No Win No Fee claims, if your case is successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any legal fees not paid by your opponent will be deducted from the compensation sum that you’re awarded.

In the event that your claim isn’t successful, you won’t have to pay any legal fees for our work. At the start of the claim we’ll help you set up an insurance policy which is designed to protect you if your claim isn’t successful.

No Win No Fee agreements have a number of benefits, such as:

  • You’ll pay nothing to us out of your own pocket throughout your claim
  • We’ll fund all the necessary expenses (e.g. medical examinations and court fees)
  • You’ll only make a contribution towards your legal costs at the end if your claim is successful
