Making A Legal Claim and Putting Affairs In Order Webinar

August 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

For carers only – 30 place limit

The Mesothelioma UK Carers’ Hour is designed specifically to support the carers of mesothelioma patients.

Carers’ Hour takes place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 2pm on Zoom. Registration is via Eventbrite.

For the first half of this months meeting, we are delighted to welcome lawyer Andrew Morgan. Andrew is a partner at law firm Fieldfisher. He has been specialising in work related injuries including mesothelioma, industrial diseases and workplace accidents for over 25 years. Andrew will be speaking about the basics of making a civil claim against an employer where asbestos exposure has occurred as an employee. He will also explain about how to start putting legal affairs in order on a diagnosis of mesothelioma.

Participant numbers are limited to 30 per meeting to allow all to speak and be heard. The format of the meetings will be a short 15-20 minute presentation from a relevant guest speaker; the remainder of the hour being an open discussion and opportunity to ask questions of our speaker. There will always be at least two mesothelioma clinical nurse specialists at the meeting to field any questions.
