Successful Asbestosis Claim Settled Against Department For Transport
Mr M developed asbestosis as a result of exposure to asbestos during his employment with British Rail.
Mr M started work with Great Western Rail in 1943 at the age of 15 and remained with them when it was privatised to become British Rail. He remained employed in a number of different roles until 1990.
Mr M undertook work in and around asbestos and therefore was exposed to asbestos during the course of his employment.
A number of years after his retirement Mr M fell ill and was diagnosed with asbestosis.
A claim was made against British Rail and settlement has now been agreed in the sum of £35,000 gross. The settlement of the claim has been achieved within 12 months of instructions being received from Mr M.
