Caroline Pinfold has obtained one of the first payments under the Diffuse Mesothelioma Payments Scheme for one of her clients, CD.
CD was exposed to asbestos when working as an apprentice carpenter for a company in King’s Lynn, Norfolk between 1965 and 1967. The exposure was at two schools in that area: St James Boys School, which is now Greyfriars in London Road, King’s Lynn where he had to saw up asbestos ceiling tiles and also bevel the edges with a plane, and at Gaywood Park Secondary Modern School when the boiler and heating system were being renewed. His employer at the time no longer exists and no insurance could be traced. The Administrators of the scheme agreed he was eligible and paid the tariff rate for his age to him.
Mr CD did receive the money but sadly we have heard he passed away earlier today; we offer our sincere condolences to his family.
The Government brought in regulations to establish a new Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme under the Mesothelioma Act 2014. The regulations allowed the Government to establish such a scheme for the purpose of making payments to eligible people with diffuse mesothelioma and also to eligible dependents of those who have died with diffuse mesothelioma. The scheme started on 1st July 2014.
