Alan Toms was exposed to asbestos as an apprentice plumbing and heating engineer by H Willsmore in the late 1960s and by R B Plant Installation Limited in the early 1980s. Tragically he died from mesothelioma as a result of these exposures in September 2013 at the age of 63.
Alan had been running his own successful business when he began to suffer the effects of mesothelioma. He had hoped to pass on his knowledge and experience to his sons and daughter so that the business could continue but sadly this was not possible. It was not possible to carry on the business without his extensive skill and experience and his widow, who had been a partner, suffered financial loss as a result.
"We would like to thank you for dealing with this claim. We have found you to be a compassionate and professional lawyer who has shown us kindness throughout this difficult period in our lives. This money cannot replace Alan, however it does ensure financial security for the future."
