Mesothelioma compensation awarded to widow of an engineer

An engineer in the communications industry, the deceased was diagnosed with mesothelioma following the development of symptoms many decades after his exposure to asbestos dust. As is frequently the case, his life expectancy was tragically cut short. We were asked to represent his widow in order to ensure she received the compensation to which she was rightly entitled. Although this is no compensation for the loss of a loved one, it will provide financial security after her husband's death.

Specialist asbestos compensation lawyers

Our specialist asbestos compensation lawyers were asked to represent this client and brought the claim for compensation under the Fatal Accidents Act 1976. They were able to secure over a quarter of a million pounds in mesothelioma compensation for his widow,.

No warnings on the danger of asbestos-related diseases

Like thousands of workers, negligently exposed to asbestos dust through their working conditions, the deceased had been unaware of the risk of developing an asbestos-related disease through inhaling asbestos dust, though these risks had been well known to employers for many years.

Symptoms of an asbestos-related disease

In his 60's, the deceased had suffered other non-life-threatening health problems. However, only a few weeks before his death, he had been admitted to hospital for tests when his condition rapidly deteriorated. A biopsy was carried out and the diagnosis of mesothelioma was confirmed. Sadly, the tumour was particularly aggressive, and he died just a few weeks later.
