Case Histories

Case History 1

We recently settled a claim on behalf of five employees from NSK Bearings Limited, all of whom had contracted mucous membrane disorder (also known as chronic rhinitis) as a result of exposure to fumes in a forging plant.  This was a claim that was strenuously denied but ultimately successful.

Case History 2

We have now concluded a claim against CA Parsons Limited and William Press Limited, on behalf of the widow of a man who worked for these companies fitting pipes in power stations.  He had worked at a variety of power stations, including Ratcliffe and Castle Donnington.  He was exposed to asbestos because he was in the vicinity of laggers stripping old asbestos lagging and mixing new lagging by tipping bags of asbestos to the mix with water.

This was a complicated claim to value because, at the time of diagnosis of mesothelioma, this man was running a successful building business.  After face to face negotiations with insurers the claim was settled at £320,000.
