£260,000 mesothelioma compensation for former Reed Paper Board Mill worker

Boyes Turner's asbestos claims lawyers successfully settled a claim for £260,000 for a 60 year old man who developed mesothelioma, an asbestos related cancer, after being exposed to asbestos when he was employed by Reed Paper Board Mill on Colthrop Lane, near Newbury between 1976 and 1978.

The victim was exposed to asbestos when removing large pieces of board which had become stuck in the machines and dragging the board over the asbestos-lagged pipes. The Mill had a team of laggers who regularly mixed dry asbestos to form a paste before applying it on to the steam pipes which served the machines on and under which the victim worked.

The claim settled for £260,000.

I really appreciated the friendly, efficient and supportive nature of the solicitor. 

I would also like to express my thanks to you for your dedication in chasing the defendant's insurance company especially where COVID-19 made an impact.
