Successful asbestos compensation claims

Here is just a small sample of the many successful asbestos-related claims which Reuben has been involved in.

Asbestos-related compensation claim - Mesothelioma from minimal exposure

Reuben’s client died from asbestos induced mesothelioma aged only 57. Reuben was instructed by his client 2 days before he was due to go into hospital for radical surgery.

Reuben obtained a full detailed statement of evidence detailing exposure to asbestos dust which occurred in the mid-1960’s. The employment was with an engineering company and whilst his role as an Engineer did not involve any exposure to asbestos dust, Reuben’s client had been exposed whilst he was an Apprentice.

There had been a fire at the premises where he worked as an Apprentice, and afterwards he was required to clean up. This included the dry sweeping of asbestos materials which had formed the roof of the warehouse premises which had burned down. This work was done over the course of a few days and this one-off light exposure caused by the sweeping and tidying operation was the only known exposure to asbestos dust.

Unfortunately the light exposure lead to the contraction of the fatal disease, mesothelioma over 40 years later. This is a common latency (delay) period between exposure and development of the asbestos-related disease.

Reuben’s client underwent the radical surgery but never fully recovered and died in hospital aged 57. Reuben continued the case on behalf of the Widow to secure mesothelioma compensation on her behalf of £185,000.

Asbestos-related compensation claim - Asbestosis – provisional damages award

Reuben acted for an 81 year old former Brewery worker who was exposed to asbestos dust whilst working as a plumber at a Brewery in Burton between 1951 and 1969 and then as a waterman from 1969 – 1976. He was exposed to asbestos dust regularly from pipe work that was lagged with asbestos insulation and which he had to overhaul and maintain.

The Defendants denied liability and disputed the cause of the condition, refusing to pay compensation. The case had to be fought to a final trial and was settled on the day of the trial, just before it started, with the Claimant receiving an immediate award of £25,000 on a provisional damages basis.

This means that the Court also made an Order providing that if Reuben’s client should ever go on to develop further asbestos-related disease, he will automatically be entitled to further compensation without the need to prove that his employers caused his condition again. This gives him and his family the reassurance that he will be entitled to further financial compensation if his condition deteriorates.

Comments from asbestos compensation clients

Here are just a few examples of thanks expressed by clients for whom Reuben has successfully fought for asbestos-related compensation.

"I would just like to offer my sincere thanks for all the work you yourself and your staff have done for me over the recent months, which has enabled me to receive a substantial amount of money. I am very grateful. You were always at the end of the telephone and also came to visit me when needed. On behalf of my sons and myself we thank you very much."
A Widow – recipient of mesothelioma compensation

"I am writing to thank you for the efforts you put into my claim for compensation. You have fought on my behalf tenaciously but have also been very sensitive and I was very pleased with the service I received. It was reassuring to know that the claim was dealt with during my lifetime so that I know my wife is provided for financially after I am gone."
