Mesothelioma Claim for Spouse

Mrs C was exposed to asbestos dust as a result of laundering her husband’s clothes. He worked as a lagger in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s and when he came home from work he was covered in dust because he had been ripping out old lagging, sweeping it up and bagging it and then preparing new lagging by tipping bags of asbestos into water. When he got home he would take off his work clothes and give them to his wife who shook them out ready for washing. As a result, she was exposed to substantial quantities of asbestos dust and, sadly, developed mesothelioma.

I met with Mrs C at the start of the case but unfortunately she died before it could be finalised. The case was therefore continued on behalf of her estate.

The case gave rise to difficult issues but I had obtained a statement from Mrs C that provided details of how she came into contact with asbestos and an interim payment of £50,000.00 was obtained for her before she died. The case was then pursued on behalf of her estate and a negotiated settlement was achieved.
