  • Overview

    This case study demonstrates the expertise of our Chemical Poisoning & Asbestos team who recently settled a compensation claim for a marine service engineer who developed mesothelioma after exposure to asbestos when working for the Ministry of Defence.

    Alan Care acted for Mr P who had worked on diesel tugs and on steam tugs and who had performed general steam machinery maintenance. Whenever he repaired a steam joint or performed other general maintenance on the steam machinery, Mr P’s work released asbestos dust into the atmosphere. This asbestos dust settled on his clothing and fell to the floor. In about 1977, blue asbestos was found on the Experimental Trials Vessel Whimbrel on which Mr P was working. Contractors were brought in to remove this blue asbestos but appropriate safety measures were not taken and a substantial amount of asbestos dust was generated into the ship to which Mr P was exposed. Mr P had never been provided with any equipment to prevent him inhaling asbestos fibres. 

    Mr P developed mesothelioma because of asbestos exposure and launched a compensation claim

    A letter of claim was written pursuant to the Pre-Action Protocol for Disease and Illness Claims and before long, the defendant agreed to make an interim payment of £50,000. Soon after, settlement negotiations concluded with a settlement for an undisclosed 6-figure award plus legal costs which meant that Mr P kept 100% of the compensation recovered for him.
