Mr Johnson wins  £40,000.00 pay out after working at the following companies:

  • Rilmac Limited
  • Appleby Frodingham
  • Firth Brown Limited
  • Ductile Castings Limited

Asbestos exposure came from stripping, mixing and applying new asbestos lagging as well as replacing asbestos sheeting at the sides of the furnaces.

Mr Johnson was diagnosed with pleural thickening and due him only being 68, it was recommended that a claim for provisional damages be made.  This means that along with what Mr Johnson has now received, if he does in later years develop asbestosis, asbestos related lung cancer or mesothelioma then he will be able to claim again from the defendants for further damages.  There is only a slight chance of this happening, however it does provide further security if the worst was to happen.
