Mesothelioma specialist Simon Allen successfully settles Asbestos Compensation Claim for £157,000

16 January 2012

The deceased was exposed to asbestos fibres whilst working for a power company and as an inspector with the Health & Safety Executive. Proceedings were issued against the defendants as liability was denied. Engineering evidence was obtained from 3 different engineers. The case progressed towards trial. We had 5 lay witnesses to confirm the exposure to asbestos.

The claim settled 3 weeks before trial for £157,000 on full liability.
