Mesothelioma compensation for widow of engineer

We secured a six-figure sum for the widow of this mesothelioma victim. A highly qualified and respected engineer, her husband had worked for several world-renowned shipping companies.

For several decades he had worked on plant and components on ships where asbestos was present. His job involved the removal and replacing of asbestos lagging, causing him to inhale the asbestos dust in the process.

Mesothelioma victim was fit and active

Although the deceased had retired at 60, he had continued to live an active life, travelling extensively and working part-time in a voluntary capacity.

For some time he had been experiencing breathlessness and chest pain, but during a family visit he collapsed and was taken to hospital.

Alterations to accommodation

After extensive tests, the deceased was allowed to return home where changes were made to accommodate his needs. As his condition deteriorated, it was necessary for him to be cared for in a retirement home until his death, less than a year after his collapse.

Diagnosis of mesothelioma

Although our client had not been told, tests had confirmed the diagnosis of mesothelioma . It was only after her husband's death that she was informed that asbestos exposure was the cause of his condition.
