  • Overview

    Jonathan Herbert, specialist industrial disease lawyer acting for the claimant successfully settled a claim on behalf of the Executors of Mr M’s Estate to compensate him for his pain and suffering and financial losses due to death from mesothelioma caused by negligent exposure to asbestos dust when working as a painter and decorator.

    Mr M developed mesothelioma as a result of being negligently exposed to asbestos dust. He had been employed by a construction company as a full time painter and decorator from about 1993 to 2008.  He was exposed to and inhaled significant quantities of asbestos dust on a regular basis when renovating schools, private houses and a hospital. Much of his work was in areas that had been worked on by other tradesmen who had left significant quantities of dusty debris. Often, significant works had been carried out before asbestos contractors were called in.  Mr M also sanded down asbestos boards.

    No protective clothing or masks were provided to Mr M by his employer and he received no training or warning about the dangers of asbestos dust. In the course of his employment, Mr M inhaled asbestos dust.

    Following his retirement, Mr M became responsible for the upkeep of a number of residential properties owned by his daughter. Mr M’s ability to continue with property maintenance declined as his symptoms took hold.  Eventually, he was diagnosed with mesothelioma but he then survived only a further ten weeks thereafter. Our medical exported that his life had been cut short by nearly 14 years as a result of the mesothelioma.

    Mr M’s former employer admitted liability. Thereafter, negotiations took place which concluded with a settlement of just under £210,000.
