Help needed for pleural thickening claim
We have been instructed to pursue a claim for asbestos compensation for a client who suffers with diffuse pleural thickening together with an asbestos related pleural effusion. His condition causes him ongoing breathing problems and he has undergone a painful, pleural VATS procedure.
Our client worked for Birmetals Limited in Birmingham between approximately 1970 and 1975. This was part of the Birmid Qualcast group of companies which developed and manufactured lawnmowers. Our client was employed with Birmetals Limited as an apprentice electrician and his work involved installing various elements in the five or six furnaces at their site. The furnaces were lagged with asbestos for insulation, heat retention and fireproofing purposes.
The asbestos insulation boards had to be cut to size using handsaws and much asbestos dust was released into the general atmosphere, which our client then inhaled.
We are trying to find witnesses who can assist in providing evidence of asbestos exposure at Birmetals Limited in Birmingham, to help us pursue our client’s claim for asbestos compensation following his diagnosis of diffuse pleural thickening.
