We successfully recovered a high figure of damages for Mrs C who sadly developed mesothelioma as a result of being exposed to asbestos in washing her son’s contaminated work clothes.
Mrs C’s son worked for the Central Electricity Generating Board (CEGB) at the Stella South and Blyth power stations and would be exposed to asbestos dust which contaminated his work clothes during the course of his work as a mechanical fitter between 1973 and 1978 approximately.
This case showed that the CEGB did not have any laundry facilities at the power stations where her son worked which could have limited her exposure. The case shows that asbestos related illnesses can also affect family members of workers through secondary or passive exposure to asbestos.
“You represented me in a claim for mesothelioma compensation following the death of my mother-in-law. You kept me well informed throughout and simplified the whole legal process. The claim was run without any fuss and a positive result achieved for the family. Many thanks for all that you have done.”
