Mesothelioma deaths continue to rise - HSE statistics reveal

On 7 March 2013, The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) released the latest figures for deaths resulting from mesothelioma, which demonstrate that they are continuing to rise. In Great Britain just over 40 years ago, the annual number of deaths from mesothelioma, a fatal form of cancer caused through exposure to asbestos, stood at 153. This rose to 1,968 in 2010, amongst the highest in the world.

Workers in the construction industry are at particular risk and have seen the highest proportion of mesothelioma deaths. The alarming increase is due to the widespread use of asbestos in construction and industry across the UK.

Mesothelioma compensation for widow of deceased joiner

Only in her 70’s when her husband died, our client in this claim for mesothelioma compensation was devastated at the loss of her companion. They had been together since they were teenagers.

Her husband had begun proceedings to make a claim for asbestos-related compensation, but sadly died before it could be completed. His widow asked us to continue representing her.

Our specialist asbestos compensation lawyers entered into robust negotiation with the deceased’s employer and were able to secure around £100,000 in compensation for his widow. Nothing will compensate her for her loss, but it will at least mean that she does not have the added financial worry now that he has gone.

Mesothelioma compensation for wife, mother and grandmother

Now retired, this client was exposed to asbestos dust during the 1970’s. She did not work directly with or around asbestos, but was exposed as the dust was present in the atmosphere as she went about her duties throughout the factory where she worked.

A manufacturer of paper products, her employer had ceased to exist some years ago but we used our vast knowledge and expertise of investigating such claims to trace the legal successors of that company and bring a claim for mesothelioma compensation.

Our specialist asbestos compensation lawyers worked quickly and effectively to ensure that her claim for compensation was completed during her lifetime and they were successful in securing a six-figure sum in mesothelioma compensation.

Mesothelioma compensation for widow of engineer

We secured a six-figure sum for the widow of this mesothelioma victim. A highly qualified and respected engineer, her husband had worked for several world-renowned shipping companies.

For several decades he had worked on plant and components on ships where asbestos was present. His job involved the removal and replacing of asbestos lagging, causing him to inhale the asbestos dust in the process.

Mesothelioma compensation for worker of over 40 years

Our client in this claim for mesothelioma compensation was a man who had started his working life as an apprentice, had been promoted in stages to employment in a professional capacity, and retired early after more than 40 years loyal service.

Our specialist asbestos compensation lawyers worked tirelessly to ensure that his claim was completed in as short a time as possible and were able to secure a six-figure sum in mesothelioma compensation, ensuring that he knew that his family would be financially secure when he was no longer able to support them.
