  • Overview

    This case study demonstrates expertise of our chemical poisoning and asbestos team which recently negotiated a significant amount of compensation for the Estate of a former contracts engineer who experienced occupational exposure to asbestos when visiting various building sites to measure up for the purposes of drawing plans for air conditioning systems.

    We have successfully negotiated the settlement in full for the Estate of a former contracts engineer who contracted mesothelioma from exposure to airborne asbestos dust from 1960 to 1968. At that time he had been working an a variety of sites whilst preparing plans for the installation of air conditioning systems.

    ‘A’ attended sites at least twice a week and was exposed to substantial quantities of asbestos dust which was created by laggers who were cutting up asbestos sheets using power saws. Other tradesmen on site had also been ripping out asbestos as part of demolition works. No protective equipment was ever supplied to A.

    A settlement was achieved 4 months after the delivery of a letter of claim and an interim payment was received. While the claim settled during A’s lifetime, he sadly died before the balance of his compensation was received. The compensation was accordingly paid to the executors of his Estate.
