Over £240,000 settlement obtained for mesothelioma sufferer

  • Posted

Sylvia Phillips, an asbestos-disease claim specialist at Ashtons Legal, has recently obtained a substantial injury settlement for a Norwich man who was diagnosed with mesothelioma many years after being exposed to asbestos dust at work.

Mr C was a carpenter whose asbestos exposure occurred over a period of several years when he was working on buildings in and around Norwich, including an RAF site.

Sylvia comments: “We were pleased because we managed to secure compensation during our client’s lifetime, despite the fact that the claim was against an unincorporated business where both of the business owners are now deceased.

“When a claim is settled during a terminally ill client’s lifetime, there are different financial issues to consider than if the claim settles after death and we were able to work with the family to ensure the best outcome for Mr C.”
