Compensation for Asbestos related conditions - supporting you and your family

A diagnosis of an asbestos related disease can be devastating for the sufferer and their loved ones.

We understand that it can be very daunting to be faced with medical investigations, treatment and making a claim for compensation at a time when life has been turned upside down.

We are committed to supporting you by providing comprehensive legal advice and assistance with a compensation claim and claims for benefits whilst you concentrate on your treatment and family life.

Our experienced solicitors will guide you through the claims process and help with any benefit applications so that everything runs as smoothly as possible.  In mesothelioma cases, we can also assist with seeking compensation for funding private medical treatments such as immunotherapy, where this is appropriate.

There is no need to worry about legal fees.  If we consider that you have realistic prospects of success, we will be able to offer you a "no win, no fee" agreement and we offer out of hours appointments in your home or at hospital if required, on both sides of the Humber.

At Graham & Rosen, we have all the expertise you need for bringing a successful claim, right here in Hull.
