Bob Baillie contacted Peter Williams of Fieldfisher in April 2008. He had been diagnosed with mesothelioma at Bart’s Hospital. Bob worked for two companies where he was exposed to significant amounts of asbestos; Murray Munro Limited in the 1960s and Ford Motor Company Limited Dagenham. The insurers for Murray Munro were traced and both Defendants were pursued through the Courts under the speedy trial provisions. An interim payment of £40,000 was arranged for July and the case was completed in October 2008, less than six months after first instruction for the sum of £220,000. The case was conducted at no cost to Mr Baillie.
“Many thanks for all you have done for me. It has been a great pleasure meeting you and a delight to know someone who does not stint on the work he does for others with diseases such as mine.”
