Family may launch industrial disease claim

Family may launch industrial disease claim

An industrial disease claim could be launched by a family after an inquest revealed a loved one died due to an asbestos-related illness.

It has emerged that Kenneth Sanderson passed away in January 2010 from mesothelioma - a condition that affects the cell lining of the lungs - and his relatives are now appealing for his ex-workmates to help them establish when he came into contact with the substance, the Sheffield Star reports.

The 78-year-old's family believe he may have been exposed to asbestos during his time fulfilling duties as a kiln car operator at G R Stein Refractories in Worksop for 18 years from 1973 to 1991.

His son Richard Sanderson told the news source that his father informed him prior to his death that he believes he came into contact with the substance at that venue.

Recently, the News & Star reported that widow Vivian Walters is seeking more than £300,000 in compensation after her husband Peter Walters died from mesothelioma in January 2010.
