Mesothelioma and asbestos claims by UK regions

Asbestos-related diseases affect thousands of people across the United Kingdom, with more than 5,000 deaths occurring every year as a result of mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.  Many other people are diagnosed every year with other asbestos-related diseases. 
 
Certain UK regions have a higher rate of asbestos-related diseases due to their heavy industrial histories. As these conditions can take many years to develop, you may have moved to a different area by the time of diagnosis. Our specialist asbestos lawyers have represented people from all over the UK who have been exposed to asbestos and developed fatal diseases as a result. Wherever you or a loved one worked in the UK when you were exposed or received a diagnosis, our expert team can help with your claim for asbestos and mesothelioma compensation.  We can help you to claim during treatment or to recover mesothelioma compensation after the death of a loved one.
 
Even if the company you worked for no longer exists, our team can help you bring a claim wherever in the UK you worked and live. Contact your local Leigh Day solicitors from the selection of regions below.

Asbestos claims in Birmingham and the West Midlands

Birmingham and the West Midlands has a proud industrial heritage. So much so, it was once known as the “workshop of the world”. Many workers in the city and wider region’s factories, power stations and the car industry were exposed to asbestos during their daily working life and have gone on to develop related diseases. We deal with claims across the area including Warwickshire, Coventry, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire. 
 

Asbestos claims in Derbyshire and the East Midlands

The rate of mesothelioma diagnosis in Derbyshire and the East Midlands has risen over the past 25 years as a result of the region’s industrial legacy. It was home to many power stations and British Rail’s Midland Railway Locomotive Works, where asbestos exposure may have taken place. Our East Midlands office covers Derbyshire
Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland.
 

Asbestos claims in Liverpool

Liverpool’s famous shipbuilding industry and its important docks employed many people in and around the city. Sadly, asbestos use and exposure was rife and has led former engineers, joiners, labourers and many other workers to develop asbestos-related diseases in later life. Asbestos claims continue to rise across Liverpool, Birkenhead and the Wirral. 
 

Asbestos claims in London and the South East

A lot of unregulated building work took place across the capital in the 1950s, where workers came into contact with asbestos. It was also present in factories and construction sites in later years all over Greater London. Our solicitors in London can help with you or a loved one’s asbestos claim. 
 

Asbestos claims in Manchester

The prominent role Manchester played in the industrial revolution, with its legacy continuing into the 20th century, saw many factory, dock and construction workers exposed to asbestos throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Today, many have developed asbestos-related diseases and have claims for compensation due to the nature of their work and the fact they weren’t provided with protective equipment.     
 

Asbestos claims in Newcastle

The North East has one of the highest death rates from asbestos-related diseases in the UK. Some of this stems from its proud history of shipbuilding, as asbestos was widely used throughout ships. Many of those on board, building and repairing ships were exposed during their daily work and have sadly gone on to develop mesothelioma and other related diseases.

Asbestos claims in Plymouth and the South West

Mining, shipbuilding and engineering have all been important industries across Cornwall and Devon with various dock and shipyards serving as the workplaces of many of the region’s residents. First-hand and secondary asbestos exposure has led to former workers in Plymouth and the South West developing asbestos-related diseases and having rightful compensation claims. 

Asbestos claims in Wales

Asbestos was used in various docks, power plants and steel plants across Wales, resulting in exposure for many former workers before its dangers were known. At Leigh Day, our specialist team can help you bring an asbestos claim in Wales.
