Metalworker's widow receives mesothelioma compensation

When her husband, who had already contacted us regarding making a claim for personal injury compensation, died of mesothelioma, our client asked us to continue to represent her in bringing a claim for compensation for the death of her husband from an asbestos-related disease.

Her husband had not directly worked with asbestos but had been exposed to asbestos dust by his employer during his employment as an apprentice sheet metalworker in the 1960’s. Despite the employer initially denying liability, when our specialist asbestos solicitors brought court proceedings, we were able to secure a settlement of almost £150,000 in mesothelioma compensation.

They were successful in securing over £120,000 in mesothelioma compensation, which meant our client had the comfort of knowing that his family would be financially provided for after his death.
