Family of mesothelioma victim seek help. Did you work at Furness Shipyards, British Steel (Dorman Long)/Anderston Iron Foundry and R Blackett Charlton?

Boyes Turner Solicitors are instructed by the son of the late Mr Michael (Mick) Hunt, who sadly died on 19th July 2015.  A Coroner’s investigation established that the cause of death was mesothelioma, an asbestos related cancer.  Mr Hunt’s family have instructed us to investigate how and when he was exposed to asbestos dust.

Mr Hunt was an apprentice Riveter in Furness Shipyards, making ships and landing craft during the Second World War (1939 – 1945).

He was then employed by  Anderstons Iron Foundry, which was next to the Tees Transporter Bridge between 1947 and 1956. 

Mr Hunt then moved to British Steel (Dorman Long) where he worked at Cargo Fleet in Middlesbrough from 1956 to 1974.

Later, he worked at the Electricity Board from 1974 to 1975 and his final move was to R Blackett Charlton and Co on the construction of Olefins VI at Wilton from 1975 to 1978. 

We are trying to trace anyone who worked for, or knows someone who worked for the above companies during or around the dates shown.

The service was personal, professional and considered. I was treated so kindly and in the end I knew that not only had I found the right organisation but also the right person.
