Care and Assistance
Those who have developed an industrial disease often require care and assistance. This can be in the form of paid care from private nurses but also unpaid help from family and friends.
Our specialist solicitors will ensure that all aspects of a claim for care and assistance are investigated. Detailed witness statements will be obtained and experts’ reports prepared where necessary with a view to maximising the claim for care and assistance.
At Macks we ensure you receive everything you need to obtain the best quality of life if you have developed an Industrial disease.
Our Solicitors realise that whilst it is essential that you receive full financial compensation for your illness it is just as important that you receive first class care, assistance and treatment to help you cope with your asbestos related illness.
At Macks we can arrange private care, assistance and medical treatment, all paid for by the other side’s insurers. This can include nursing care and also help with household tasks such as cooking, cleaning, shopping, decorating, household maintenance and gardening.
In more serious cases private nursing care can be provided, assuring that your needs are fully catered for.
Any assistance provided voluntarily by family and friends can still be recovered as part of the claim. Family often provide a significant amount of care and assistance for asbestos related illness, for example they often help with the following:-
- Nursing care
- Hoovering and housework
- Taking loved ones to medical appointments
- Assistance with mobility
- Assistance with laundry
- Assistance in taking medication
- Help with dressing and undressing
- Assistance with getting in and out of showers and baths
- Assistance with toileting
- Help with making meals
- Gardening, decorating and DIY tasks
In the most serious cases adaptions to your home can be arranged if they are needed.
