At Macks we are aware that for many people suffering from an asbestos related disease their main concern is not their own welfare, but the future welfare of their loved ones. In the more serious cases, where tragically an asbestos related disease takes the life of the victim, there is particular concern that the compensation and any relevant state benefits are claimed to ensure that those left behind do not suffer a financial burden and are properly catered for.
At Macks we have a wealth of experience of dealing with asbestos related claims including claims brought by family members following the death of a loved one as a result of asbestos disease. We act with great sensitivity in such cases and appreciate that bringing matters to a conclusion quickly as humanly possible is important.
In pursuing claims for those who have died of asbestos related claims families can recover the following:-
- Damages for the pain and suffering endured by their loved one during their illness.
- Compensation if someone was financially dependent on a loved one who died as a result of asbestos related disease.
- Paid for or gratuitous care and assistance provided for the loved one.
- Funeral expenses.
- Assistance with services around the home which the victim of asbestos disease used to provide for the family.
At Macks we also have a first class Wills and Probate department. They can help those suffering from asbestos related disease sort out their affairs and can liaise with our asbestos claims team to ensure that all financial eventualities are looked at and assessed properly. All the legal help you need under one roof is available to assist you and your family at such a difficult time.
