We recovered damages for Jean Ambrose following the death of her husband from mesothelioma.
Mr Ambrose was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2006,when he was 76.
Mrs Ambrose cared for him during his illness until he passed away in November 2009.
The case was out of time under court rules because Mr Ambrose had not issued a claim against Mobil within 3 years of his diagnosis. Mrs Ambrose was unaware of this.
Following the inquest the coroner advised Mrs Ambrose to instruct a solicitor. She contacted two firms of solicitors who did not pursue her claim.
She eventually contacted Peter Williams who decided to pursue her claim, even though the deadline for pursuing a mesothelioma compensation claim had passed.
Peter negotiated a settlement for Mrs Ambrose, arguing that the Mobil were not disadvantaged by the delay as they had seen and settled asbestos claims in the past arising from the same circumstances, many of them conducted by Field Fisher Waterhouse.
After the case Mrs Ambrose said
"Peter was fantastic. I really couldn’t have wished for anything more.
"He worked really hard on my claim and really knew his stuff. I have passed his number on to others because I was so pleased."
