Asbestosis caused scarring of lungs for shipyards worker
Mr W. was diagnosed with asbestosis, a scarring of the lungs, at the age of 74.
Asbestosis is caused by exposure to asbestos.
How was he exposed to asbestos at work?
Mr W. had been exposed to asbestos when working as an Electrician in the shipyards in his youth.
His employer failed to put in place safeguards to minimise risk of asbestos exposure.
Compensation claim for asbestosis
Mr W. came to Digby Brown for help with a compensation claim for his asbestosis diagnosis.
Claims of this nature can be difficult because the diagnosis of asbestosis can be controversial and medical experts often disagree.
Digby Brown’s expert asbestosis solicitors took Mr W.’s case to Court and successfully recovered £30,000 compensation.
