Brian Mason was diagnosed with mesothelioma in August 2007. Brian had worked for F J Baynes & Co and later as a maintenance engineer for London Borough of Lambeth. During his time with both companies he was exposed to substantial amounts of asbestos.
At the London Borough of Lambeth he was required to work at the public baths in Lambeth Walk. Many of the boilers were removed and replaced and Brian would have to go in and out of the boiler houses whilst this work was being carried out.
Brian died in April 2008 before the claim was settled. Dushal Mehta was able to conclude the claim for his wife, Joan Mason, and achieved damages of £162,500.00. This would go towards ensuring that she is able to pay for the renovation work that Brian had begun at the home but was not able to finish due to his illness.
After the case Joan said:
"I would like to thank you for the professional yet empathetic way in which my case has been handled.
I have been kept informed from the outset to what was happening with my claim and the outcome was very satisfactory".
