Michael Morton was exposed to asbestos when working as a self-employed carpenter and joiner under the supervision of D J Higgins & Sons Ltd. He had to cut up sheets of asbestos during the construction of a primary school in Ilford, Essex from about 1973 to 1974. Although he was not a direct employee, Higgins Construction PLC, the successors to the contractors accepted liability for his mesothelioma and paid compensation during his lifetime. He is now aged 66 and the money will enable him to pay for others to carry out repairs to his property that he would have carried out himself if he had not contracted mesothelioma.
Michael thanked Caroline Pinfold for obtaining the compensation for him and said he appreciated her "friendly but professional help in achieving the outcome."
