Mesothelioma compensation case settled for £105,000
Mr A was diagnosed with asbestos related diffuse pleural thickening in April 2012 and Boyes Turner commenced investigations. In August 2013 Mr A was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma. Mr A was exposed to asbestos when working for Union Pitch Fibre Pipes and the Universal Asbestos Company Limited between 1956 and 1968.
Mr A was employed as a fitter and was involved in the maintenance of all of the company’s machinery. When working at the Universal Asbestos Company he was exposed to substantial quantities of asbestos dust. He worked in the vicinity of those using raw asbestos to make sheets and worked in a very dusty environment.
Mr A recalled finding a lump in his hand during his employment and pulling out asbestos like a ball of cotton wool from his hand.
Boyes Turner mesothelioma lawyers obtained a medical report on Mr A’s condition from an expert in asbestos related diseases. Mr A was 86 years old and his mesothelioma had shortened his life expectancy.
Boyes Turner expert mesothelioma lawyers settled Mr A’s mesothelioma compensation claim for £105,000.
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.
