Our mesothelioma claims team acted on behalf of Mrs Joyce Holley who worked at the British Uralite asbestos factory in Higham from 1943 to 1949.
The photo shows workers of the British Uralite at their Christmas party in Higham, Kent in 1949. Joyce Holley is third from the left.
Initially she worked in the women’s pipe shop and then finally in the canteen. She was exposed to asbestos whilst making asbestos products such as pipe bends, pipe terminals, pipe cowls and garden boxes.
She also cut wet asbestos sheets, wrapped the asbestos around moulds and finally took the moulds to a fire to dry out. After drying she would smooth the asbestos products down with an emery board and polish them with French chalk. Mrs Holley was diagnosed with mesothelioma in July 2009 and her case settled for £118,000 in October 2009.
Mrs Holley commented:
“Thank you so much for dealing with my case. I was very surprised with how quickly and how easily everything went through and with no effort on my part at all. So a big thank you to all who helped my case.”
