£50,000 Settlement For Carpenter Diagnosed With Lung Cancer
Successful claim settled on behalf of the family of former employee of Wates Construction Limited.
Mr C developed lung cancer as a result of exposure to asbestos during his employment with the company formerly known as Wates Construction Limited.
Mr C worked for Wates Construction Limited from 1965/66 to 1970. He was employed as a carpenter but worked in amongst a number of tradesmen.
Mr C’s employment meant that he had to work with Asbestolux including cutting and fitting the material. This caused him to be exposed to asbestos dust throughout his working day. He also undertook work fixing asbestos panels and cutting through asbestos fire doors.
Mr C was diagnosed with lung cancer and suffered significant problems with his breathing up until his death. A claim was made on behalf of his Estate and settlement has now been agreed in the sum of £50,000 gross for the benefit of his family.
