Our personal injury team were able to agree a settlement for Mark who had developed mild pleural thickening and mild asbestosis in the global sum of £30,000. Mark was very grateful for the efforts Fieldfisher went to to investigate his claim. He had received negative advice on his condition previously from a senior consultant chest physician who diagnosed pleural plaques and stated Mark had no injury for which he could make a claim.

We arranged for a CT scan to be performed on Mark and sought a second opinion from a leading chest physician in London who reviewed the scan, undertook lung function tests and diagnosed pleural thickening and mild asbestosis. This enabled the claim to be settled by the Mark's previous employers liability insurers.
