Asbestos Exposure Leads To Mesothelioma Compensation

28 July 2010

Our client was diagnosed with asbestos related Mesothelioma, after working in a number of mills, where he regularly inhaled asbestos as he disturbed asbestos lagged pipework during the course of his maintenance and repair work.  Unfortunately the four companies against which we wished to bring his claim could not be traced through the usual channels, until the involvement of an Insurance Archaeologist found one such insurer against whom the claim could be brought.  Two other insurers were located thereafter. Sadly our client died before his case was settled, so his widow took over the claim.  After a long and difficult battle, that went to the Royal Courts of Justice,  our client was finally awarded the compensation they were due.
