Mr G grew up in London before the Second World War and worked as a lagger for a little less than a year in about 1945 before leaving London to take up a job near his evacuated family in Essex.
Andrew had access to the extensive insurance archives that we hold at Fieldfisher. Although the employer ceased trading many years ago Andrew was able to trace insurance records going back as far as 1923 and so was able to make a claim for Mr G.
Andrew pursued the claim speedily and obtained a full value settlement of £130,000 within 7 weeks of first meeting Mr G to discuss his case and to take his statement. Without access to our archive of insurance, this mesothelioma case would have been difficult to settle within such a short time frame.
After the case had settled, Mr G's daughter-in-law had this to say about Andrew Morgan:
"Both my father in law and myself would like to take this opportunity to thank you and express our appreciation for the time and your professional expertise in dealing with this case and for the short length of time it has taken to sort out. The financial reward coming his way will help him greatly not to worry and also to enjoy his life as best he can".
