We dealt with a particularly novel claim for Mrs D who was diagnosed with mesothelioma.
The evidence showed that our client only ever came into contact with asbestos during the course of the time she worked at the Companies House offices in London. Our client could recall asbestos panel having to be removed during the course of her work which resulted in some asbestos dust being released into the atmosphere.
The claim was settled for tens of thousands of pounds during Mrs D’s lifetime within a period of 8 months of receipt. This case is an example of even relatively small instances of exposure resulting in devastating effects.
