12th July 2010

Mesothelioma compensation secured within four months

With all mesothelioma compensation claims, there is inevitable urgency. Many clients wish to secure compensation within their lifetime. Once a diagnosis of mesothelioma is confirmed, life expectancy is tragically cut short.

In this claim for mesothelioma compensation our specialist asbestos compensation lawyers negotiated fiercely to conclude this client’s claim within four months of receiving instructions.

This quick conclusion meant that our client was able to rest assured, during what time was left to him, knowing that the financial situation of his family would be secure after his death.

Interim payments for mesothelioma victim

Immediately following receipt of instructions, our asbestos lawyers made a successful claim for an interim payment. This was quickly followed by a successful demand for a second interim payment, which would ease the financial burden during the remainder of our client’s lifetime.

Symptoms of mesothelioma

Our client had been a fit man and became concerned when he began losing weight at an alarming rate. He also noticed that he was becoming breathless after very little exertion. His GP referred him for x-rays but although there was some concern at the results, these were initially attributed to a previous infection.

However, when his symptoms continued, he underwent another x-ray, a CT scan and a biopsy, as well as various lung function and other tests. Sadly, the biopsy confirmed that he was suffering from the asbestos-related disease, mesothelioma.

Although he has received several sessions of both radiotherapy and chemotherapy, to try to slow down the progress of the disease, mesothelioma is always fatal.

Exposed to asbestos dust by negligent employer

A professional and highly qualified man, this client had worked for the same employer during his entire working life. Working across a number of industrial and manufacturing plants, he had not worked directly with asbestos, but had been exposed due to spending time working in areas where he was in close proximity to laggers who were applying and replacing asbestos insulation on pipe work..

Protective equipment for asbestos dust

Our client’s employer was negligent in failing to provide any protective equipment such as masks or extraction equipment. Nor was our client given any warnings about the dangers of exposure to asbestos dust.
