The procedure when making a claim for an asbestos related disease.
In Ireland a personal injury compensation claim for an asbestos related disease must be started within 2 years from the date when the person suffering from the condition became aware of the diagnosis.
In fatal cases a claim must be commenced by the personal representative of the Deceased person within 2 years of the date of death, or within 2 years from the date the Deceased’s family became aware that the cause of death was due to asbestos exposure. It is important that legal advice about making a claim is sought without delay.
Once you have decided to instruct a personal injury Solicitor, they will investigate whether the employer is responsible for the asbestos exposures or whether the insurer’s can be traced. If it is possible to pursue a claim it will also be necessary to investigate the medical issues and obtain evidence to assess and prove the potential value of the claim.
