Graham worked as a lagger for the Ministry of Defence for four years, where he was exposed to asbestos. He later developed asbestosis, a chronic lung disease caused by inhaling asbestos fibres.
The Ministry of Defence admitted that Graham was negligently exposed to asbestos as their employee. They denied that the exposure caused Graham's illness and subsequent disability. Graham has severe breathing difficulties and requires oxygen.
After a three day trial at the High Court, the judge ruled in Graham's favour.
The judge awarded Graham damages on a provisional basis.
He will be able to pursue another claim for damages if Graham develops mesothelioma or asbestos induced lung cancer.
The award includes money to compensate Graham for the pain and suffering caused by his illness.
It also provides compensation for his past and future care.
