Marion Voss – Asbestos compensation solicitor

Leeds solicitor occupational diseases

Marion Voss, an Associate Solicitor based at the Leeds office, is responsible for the Leeds based Disease Team. The team handles the full range of occupational diseases, but specialises in asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma, diffuse pleural thickening, and fatal claims, as well as noise-induced deafness, HAVS (known as vibration white finger) occupational asthma and chemical exposure cases. Marion is also the national co-ordinator for COSHH (regulations related to the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) cases.

Marion has over 11 years experience of dealing with serious injury compensation claims, including work related cancers, industrial disease and asbestos-related disease cases and has been successful in winning personal injury compensation for many clients who have developed bladder cancer, caused by exposure to hazardous substances at work.

Marion has a reputation as a fearsome and ferocious litigator, and has only ever acted for injured people, for whom she is committed to winning fair and just compensation.

She works closely with asbestos support groups fighting for the rights of families devastated by the effects of asbestos related disease. She has represented clients in the Court of Appeal.

She is a member of the The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the Law Society Personal Injury panel.

Successful accident compensation claims

Below is just a small sample of the many claims for serious injury compensation that Marion has successfully fought for her clients.

Mesothelioma compensation claim – Asbestos-related disease

Marion represented this client following his tragic diagnosis of mesothelioma. A fit and healthy man who was approaching what he anticipated would be a long and happy retirement, he was devastated to receive the news of this usually fatal condition. He sought out possible treatments both at home and abroad.

He was employed by a contractor who manufactured and installed extraction systems. As part of one of these installation projects, he worked on a customer’s site for several days. During this time, he remembered the presence of asbestos dust so thick it was like walking through snow, and his overalls at the end of the day had to be dusted down vigorously to show their original colour.

Although Marion was forced to issue court proceedings, before the trial date, and after advising her client to reject offers, she was able to negotiate a six-figure sum in mesothelioma compensation for her client, which included a sum for future private medical treatments in the USA.

Asbestos-related disease claim - Asbestosis and lung cancer compensation

Marion successfully concluded this claim for asbestos-related lung cancer compensation for the wife of the deceased. The claim had been started by the widow because the victim had sadly passed away before receiving advice. By issuing court proceedings when the defendant’s insurers refused to negotiate an acceptable settlement, Marion was able to secure substantial compensation for the deceased’s death as a result of the negligence of his employer, including the care costs of the widow, who had relied upon her husband’s care due to her own medical care needs.

Latterly, the deceased was admitted to a hospice where he was cared for by dedicated medical staff. As part of his claim for disease compensation, the compensation included a sum towards the costs of the voluntary hospice, for the wonderful care they provided in his last days.

Exposure to hazardous substances – Bladder cancer compensation claim

Marion was asked to represent this client following the death of her husband from bladder cancer. She had turned to us when the deceased’s original solicitor had failed to represent them correctly.

The deceased had worked for a chemical manufacturing company and had been exposed to MBOCCA (sometimes used as a curing agent for epoxy and polyurethane resins) which is a known cancerous chemical. It may cause bladder cancer if it is inhaled, absorbed through the skin or ingested with food, drink or cigarettes.

During the deceased’s employment, he would come home with his clothes, hair and skin adopting the yellow colouring. He was not provided with adequate protective equipment and there was insufficient ventilation, which would have removed the chemical and vapours to which he was negligently exposed.

Following his diagnosis, her husband received several sessions of chemotherapy. Sadly, his condition continued to deteriorate and he was provided with home support from both the Marie Curie and McMillan nurses.

Marion was forced to issue court proceedings in order to secure fair compensation for her client. The case settled for almost £100,000 in personal injury compensation.

Asbestos-related compensation claim – Fatal mesothelioma claim

Three decades before his death, our client had been negligently exposed to asbestos by his employer during his work which involved removing and replacing asbestos lagging on pipes at various local authority facilities. Thereafter, he had risen to management level and then set up his own business. His one wish was to see his daughters graduate from university. He was running a successful business at the time of his diagnosis.

Sadly, he died just a few months after he received the devastating diagnosis of mesothelioma, which is a particularly aggressive cancer, often proving fatal within months of diagnosis, never able to fulfil his wish.

Following his death, Marion continued to represent his family and was able to secure substantial compensation for their loss. Though this will never compensate for losing their husband and father, it will allow his daughters to complete their studies and provide financial relief to the whole family.
