Settlement of £300,000 for engineer exposed to asbestos
Mr C. was diagnosed with mesothelioma, an asbestos related cancer, at the age of 59 as a result of exposure to asbestos dust at work.
How was he exposed to asbestos at work?
Mr C. was exposed to asbestos during his apprenticeship as an Engineer with the Ministry of Defence.
It was all too common at this time that employers exposed employees to asbestos dust and didn’t take adequate health and safety precautions, breaching Common Law duty to take reasonable care of their employees.
Mesothelioma claim for compensation
Mr C. got in touch with Digby Brown for legal help and his mesothelioma claim was assigned to our specialist asbestos disease solicitors.
Our specialist solicitors have helped many people suffering from an asbestos related disease access justice and are passionate about providing redress for victims of asbestos exposure.
Our solicitors guided Mr C. and his family through the claims process, raising Court proceedings on his behalf and arranging all the necessary evidence to be collected and recorded.
£300,000 compensation for mesothelioma
A few weeks before the final court hearing, a settlement was achieved at £300,000 for Mr C.
On his death, if caused by mesothelioma, Mr C.’s wife and children will be entitled to make their own mesothelioma claims in addition to the damages already recovered.
