How can I make a claim under the Mesothelioma Scheme?

This scheme provides financial support to those whose employers went out of business years ago and whose employer’s insurer cannot be found.

Who Can Claim Under the Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme (DMPS)?

You might be entitled to claim if:

  • You are unable to trace your employers responsible or their insurers
  • You are the dependant of someone who has died from mesothelioma, and they were diagnosed within the last three years.

We have made many successful applications under the DMPS scheme. By choosing our specialist asbestos lawyers to help, you’ll benefit from us:

  • Applying to the scheme on your behalf
  • Getting the proof required of your mesothelioma diagnosis
  • Preparing a witness statement about your asbestos exposure

If the DMPS has any questions about your application, we can make sure that they’re answered quickly, and we can also handle any appeals if your claim is refused for any reason.

How Long Will A Mesothelioma Scheme DMPS Application Take?

In successful DMPS claims, you should receive funds within six weeks of your application being received, as long as all of the requested information is attached to your application. This amount will then be sent straight to your bank plus the money needed to pay for any legal costs. If requested, they can also send your payment via cheque.

Will you charge any costs for making A Mesothelioma Scheme application?

The Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme will pay us £7,000 to cover your legal fees. Nothing will be deducted from your compensation. It will not cost you anything to make a claim with us. 

Using our asbestos lawyers to apply for the scheme means that you can take advantage of our expertise and experience to make the process as stress-free and as fast as possible.
