I am a solicitor in the Industrial Disease group, specialising in high value and complex asbestos related claims. My highest settlement to date was in respect of a widow whose husband had passed away as a result of mesothelioma who had also set up his own company. Amongst other losses, her claim included a dependency claim in respect of her husband’s loss of earnings and pension, and loss of services for the properties in Spain and the matrimonial home. The claim settled on the eve of trial in the sum of £475,000.
I am currently working on a case where the 34 years old claimant was exposed to asbestos during his schooling and has only recently been diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma. He has a wife and two small children and therefore the claim is potentially hugely valuable and also complex as it involves low level exposure to asbestos. Since March 2010 I have recovered over £3.5 million in compensation for my clients.
