Our expert asbestos claims lawyers were instructed originally by Mr P to investigate a claim for asbestosis following his exposure to asbestos during his career as a firefighter.
Mr P was diagnosed with asbestosis after suffering symptoms of increasing breathlessness.
Mr P gave evidence to our asbestos claims lawyers, that he was exposed to asbestos whilst employed as a firefighter.
Our asbestos claims lawyers obtained a medical report on Mr P’s condition from an expert in asbestos related diseases. The expert concluded that Mr P suffered from asbestosis and had a respiratory disability of 80%, of which 10% was a result of his asbestos related disease.
Unfortunately Mr P died before the conclusion of his claim but the matter was pursued on behalf of his estate.
Our asbestos claims lawyers settled Mr P’s claim against his former employers for the benefit of his estate.
