Woods Solicitors successfully won a mesothelioma claim for the estate of a man who was exposed to asbestos prior to 1965. There were significant issues raised on behalf of the Defendant, A J Dunning & Sons in relation to the level of the deceased’s exposure to asbestos.
In the UK about 2500 people a year are diagnosed with mesothelioma. It is also known as ‘diffuse’ or ‘malignant’ mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that affects the Mesothelium, which is a thin membrane that lines the inner surface of the chest wall where it is known as the pleura, and abdomen, where it is known as the peritoneum. It also surrounds the organs found within these cavities for example the heart, lung and intestines.
