We are pursuing an asbestos compensation claim for a client who is suffering with pleural thickening following exposure to asbestos during his working life.
Our client has only been exposed to asbestos whilst working for two employers, Shepherd Construction Limited and Mr Ernest Neil Thornton, who later set up a company called Neil Kingsway Developments Limited.
He worked for Shepherd Construction Limited between approximately 1975 and 1977 and for Ernest Neil Thornton during the 1977/78 tax year for around 12 months. He was exposed to harmful amounts of asbestos dust when working for both companies as a joiner. He had cause to remove “big 6” asbestos panels from roofs as well as soffit boards, asbestos guttering and asbestos based lino tiles.
Unfortunately, due to his exposure to asbestos our client now suffers with asbestos related pleural thickening. Due to the breathing difficulties this causes, our client is able to claim asbestos compensation, but only if we are able to establish that he was exposed to harmful amounts of asbestos dust.
We are looking for witnesses who may have worked for either of the employers, who can provide a witness statement in support of this pleural thickening claim.
