1st March 2010

Mesothelioma compensation for victim during his lifetime

Only in his early 60’s, and fully intending to work up till his 65th birthday, this client and his family were devastated when they received the diagnosis that he was suffering from the fatal asbestos-related disease, mesothelioma.

Negligent exposure to asbestos dust

Like the thousands of mesothelioma sufferers who are diagnosed each year, this client had been negligently exposed to asbestos dust many years before the onset of his symptoms. These had begun by causing him to feel breathless when exerting himself, particularly when enjoying his favourite holiday pastime of walking.

Diagnosed with the asbestos-related fatal disease, mesothelioma

In the months preceding his diagnosis, he underwent a bronchoscopy, a thoracotomy and various scans. Following the confirmation of mesothelioma, he underwent further procedures, including surgery to remove the tumour. Sadly, as in so many tragic cases, the tumour returned. He continues to undergo chemotherapy, which leaves him nauseous and lethargic but perseveres in the hope that he will gain just a few extra months of time with his family.

Speedy conclusion for mesothelioma compensation claim

Our specialist mesothelioma solicitors understood the need for a speedy conclusion to this mesothelioma compensation claim. This would allow our client to enjoy what remained of his life without the worry of what would happen to his family after his death.

Mesothelioma compensation under the Workers’ Compensation Act

Soon after we received instructions to pursue this asbestos-related compensation claim, we received an admission of liability from our client’s negligent employer. We were able to secure a substantial interim payment immediately, which relieved the financial concerns of our client and his family. We were also able to secure a lump sum payment under the Workers’ Compensation Act, which also reduced the financial burden.

Financial security from mesothelioma compensation

Our asbestos lawyer was able to negotiate a substantial final settlement for this client within his lifetime, giving him the peace of mind that his family would be comfortable after his death. The sum agreed included an amount for funeral expenses plus compensation for the loss of pension resulting from his need to retire early on the grounds of ill health.
