We succeeded in a claim for industrial disease compensation for a Mr C who was diagnosed with asbestos related pleural thickening after coming into contact with asbestos during the course of his working life.
The client worked for Thos W Ward Limited between 1977 and 1981 and then later for Brown & Mason Limited between approximately 1982 and 1984 in the demolition industry and experienced heavy exposure to asbestos as a result. He was never warned of the dangers of working with asbestos materials nor was he ever provided with any form of respiratory protection.
Our client’s asbestos claim was settled on a provisional damages basis which allows him to return to claim further damages should his condition deteriorate in the future.
