In a victory for fairness, justice and common sense, the High Court today (21 November 2008) ruled that victims of mesothelioma will be entitled to claim compensation from insurers.

Working all his life in and around boilers, often in very confined spaces, our client’s father was exposed to asbestos over a lengthy period by several employers.

Employed by British Rail for many years following the second world war, he only took a break in order to carry out his national service, returning in 1955. When he left to work elsewhere, this exposure was to continue, although not on the scale of the neglect he suffered through British Rail.
