Family may start industrial disease claim

Family may start industrial disease claim

An industrial disease claim could be launched by the family of a woman who passed away due to an asbestos-related illness.

Helen McFall died from mesothelioma at the age of 54 in April this year after being diagnosed with the untreatable condition around 12 months previously, the Sunday Sun reports.

Her sister Vivienne Green told the news source that Ms McFall was "remarkable" in the way she dealt with the news as she "accepted it very quickly".

"She told the Macmillan nurses her life might not last much longer, but she wanted to make the most of the time she had left," Ms Green said.

Ms McFall's family remain unaware how and when she came into contact with the lethal substance but could decide to seek damages for her ordeal on her behalf.

"Helen lived her life caring for everyone, she was so generous," her sister went on to say.
