£257,000 Awarded To Mr R For Mesothelioma Claim
We were instructed on behalf of Mr R in respect of a claim for compensation arising out of his diagnosis of mesothelioma. Mr R was exposed to asbestos whilst working for North Eastern Gas Board / North Eastern Gas / British Gas Plc / Transco as a distribution fitter between 1969 and 1998. He was involved in attending on gas leaks and re-laying gas mains pipes.
Mr R’s claim settled in the sum of £257,500. Although the claim was settled during his lifetime, we were able to negotiate a partial financial dependency claim which is technically only legally recoverable following death.
Mr R lives in Australia and this did not delay matters and the majority of correspondence was done via email. His claim was concluded within 6 months from the date of first instruction.
