Successful conclusion of mesothelioma claim for widow

Boyes Turner specialist asbestos claims team acted for Mrs T in a claim against her husbands' father's former employers, following his death from mesothelioma. This case involved exposure to asbestos dust which was brought into the family home on Mr T's father's overalls.

Mr T Snr was employed by the Universal Asbestos Manufacturing Company at Tolpits Lane in Watford. This company was dissolved and there were no public liability insurers to meet the claim. We succeeded against the Cape holding company of Universal Asbestos two weeks before trial. The case was further complicated because we were only able to sue for ten months of asbestos exposure, this being the limited time that Mr T Jnr was living in the family home from the point at which the holding company bought the Cape factory. Cape fiercely defended this claim and we were pleased to bring it to a successful conclusion.

Mrs T commented:

“You made a difficult situation easier to bear because of the “human” way you dealt with us as your clients. I especially appreciate this while going through a very emotional and traumatic time in my life.” 

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.
