Case Study

Compensation won for a former maintenance carpenter suffering from asbestosis

Our asbestos team were able to obtain damages in an asbestosis claim for an 80 year old gentleman in the the total sum of £40,000 together with costs.

Matthew developed asbestosis following his work as a maintenance carpenter in the late 1960's. Despite having other unrelated health issues, and despite his age, we were able to negotiate a favourable settlement with Matthew's employer's insurers on the basis that Matthew still had restrictive lung disease caused by his asbestos exposure which was impairing his life over and above his other medical conditions. Matthew was thrilled with the result.
