"A big thank you for all your help and hard work in this case. As you well know it is no compensation for what is happening in our lives but this will ensure my mum will be okay and that is my main concern .... I just hope that one day you will take on cases that are able to produce a miracle cure for this awful disease”.
Alan Waters at his daughter’s Claire wedding (four weeks after he was diagnosed with mesothelioma)
Alan worked for most of his life as a BT engineer and was exposed to huge amounts of asbestos packing in cable runs.
The case against BT was completed in record time just after Christmas for £205,000 damages plus costs. It is particularly important for Mr Waters to know that his wife will be financially secure in the future.
