Separate Legal System
Scotland has a separate legal system to that in England/Wales. If a person’s exposure to asbestos has been wholly or mainly in Scotland, the claim will probably need to be made under Scots law and (if the case cannot be settled quickly for you) through the Scottish Courts.
A Free Service
The National Asbestos Helpline service is completely free of charge. Telephone calls to the National Asbestos Helpline are free and we also operate a Freepost service as an added benefit.
After discussing your claim with you, we would refer you to our Scottish solicitors who have considerable expertise in pursuing compensation for asbestos-related conditions. They would pursue your claim on a no-win, no-fee basis. On success with your claim, you may well receive 100% of your compensation, however due to fundamental differences in the legal expenses recoverable for successful claims in Scotland, there might be a small deduction from your settlement sum to cover unrecoverable legal expenses.
As with the law in England and Wales, compensation can be obtained under Scots law for the following asbestos-related conditions:
- Lung cancer with asbestosis
- Diffuse pleural thickening
- Pleural Plaques
