Yes you can – If you have developed an asbestos related disease such as mesothelioma or pleural plaques and you want to claim for compensation, do not delay – as you can still seek legal advice through a lawer/solicitor even if the company that you were employed with no longer exists .
Due to the long duration mesothelioma can occur – (anywhere between ten and fifty years) – many mesothelioma patients may find that the company they worked for has since gone into liquidation.
However – a good law firm will investigate your past history for you. Even if you are confused regarding the dates and years you worked and how you were exposed to asbestos, solicitors will investigate whatever you can remember. You may have not have even handled asbestos as part of your job but you may recall working in an environment where asbestos was present – such as a boiler room, work shop, builders yard etc….or it could have been in the School building you attended.
Some mesothelioma patients have been exposed to asbestos from laundering their spouses work clothes. A woman contracted mesothelioma from her dad’s overalls when she was a small child. He’s scoop her up in his arms after his shift at work.
