WE Solicitors have been successful in securing compensation for the widow of a gentleman who sadly passed away after being diagnosed with Mesothelioma.
We were instructed by the family of Mr B shortly after he passed away from Mesothelioma having been diagnosed only months earlier.
Mr B had kept diaries during his working life so through these, speaking with members of his family and a conversation he had with an asbestos support worker we were able to determine where his exposure to asbestos took place.
Mr B was employed at a local company, H&H Thomasons where he worked as a bricklayer in the construction industry and in his life time he spoke about working amongst other tradesmen who were using asbestos such as joiners, plumbers and electricians.
This company has long since dissolved and although we undertook investigations to locate an insurer against which to pursue a civil claim, unfortunately one could not be located. Therefore the claim proceeded in line with the Government Scheme for sufferers of Mesothelioma and their dependants.
Mrs B’s claim on behalf of her husband was concluded and she was awarded tens of thousands of pounds in compensation.
