Asbestos Justice aims to pursue all mesothelioma claims as quickly as possible. All aspects of any mesothelioma claim can be dealt with over the phone or by post and email. This means that no matter where our clients reside, if they have been exposed to asbestos in the UK, we are able to offer them an excellent level of service, regularly ensuring positive results in a variety of asbestos claims.
We have acted for clients all over the UK and much further afield. We have successfully settled claims for clients living in France, Italy, Spain, Canada, Australia and South Africa.
We have also successfully concluded a claim for mesothelioma compensation for a gentleman living in New Zealand.
Mr S contacted us after he was diagnosed with mesothelioma. He had worked in the UK but had emigrated to New Zealand. We pursued a claim for him against his former UK employers, Vosper Thornycroft (UK) Limited, Harland & Wolff Group Plc, John Thompson (Design & Contracting Division) Limited and Mathew Hall & Co Limited.
Mr S worked as a fitter and often carried out work in boiler rooms and on ships. Throughout much of his employment during the 1950s and 1960s, he worked alongside laggers who mixed asbestos powder with water to create a paste-like asbestos lagging to insulate pipes and boilers.
We were able to obtain witness evidence from Mr S and his brother who had also worked with him and showed that he had been exposed to extensive amounts of asbestos.
In all personal injury and industrial disease claims it is vital to obtain supportive medical evidence from a medical expert. We appreciate that those suffering with mesothelioma may already be plagued with medical appointments or may have difficulty travelling and so in most mesothelioma claims we are able to obtain a medical report from a highly respected expert, without the need for clients to attend an appointment. This is what we did in Mr S’s mesothelioma claim and the instructed medical expert prepared a report which supported the mesothelioma claim, purely on the basis of the medical records within a short timeframe which speeded up the asbestos claim process.
We were able to recover mesothelioma compensation in the sum of £135,000 in this case.
