Boyes Turner expert asbestos claims lawyers were instructed by Mr R to investigate a claim for malignant mesothelioma. Mr R was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma in January 2011. He underwent a number of invasive procedures and had chemotherapy, before sadly passing away in January 2013.

Mr R was exposed to asbestos when working for Vales Plant Register Limited between 1975 and 1976 as a mechanic. He removed and replaced asbestos brakes and clutches and was exposed to asbestos dust as a consequence.

Boyes Turner mesothelioma lawyers obtained a medical report on Mr R’s condition from an expert in asbestos related diseases. Mr R was 63 years old when he died and his mesothelioma had significantly shortened his life expectancy.

Prior to his diagnosis of mesothelioma Mr R cared for his elderly mother and had done so since the 1980s. As a result of his diagnosis the deceased could no longer care for his elderly mother.

Mr R’s mother sadly developed dementia and her care was subsequently provided by a specialist nursing home. Boyes Turner expert mesothelioma lawyers recovered the costs of Mr R’s mother’s care from his opponents, as but for his mesothelioma Mr R would have continued to have cared for his mother until her death.

Boyes Turner expert mesothelioma lawyers settled Mr R’s mesothelioma compensation claim on behalf of his estate for £224,860.68.
