Dushal Mehta settled a claim for Mr Ronald Kimber on a provisional damages basis which will enable Mr Kimber to make a further claim for compensation if his current condition deteriorates significantly or if he develops a malignant asbestos related condition.
Mr Kimber had a respiratory disability of 5% attributable to his asbestos related condition. The claim was pursued against Reading Co-Operative Society, Samuel Elliots & Sons and Reading Borough Council.
After the case Mr Kimber said:
"The level of service was very clear and concise at all times. I found Dushal was easy to deal with, very friendly, yet professional.
Everything was set out to enable a layman to understand the proceedings at every stage. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dushal and Fieldfisher to a friend".
