Thompsons successful in asbestosis claim


Mark Jackson

Thompsons SolicitorsWe recently acted for a client in connection with a claim for asbestosis.

Our client had been employed as an electrician at a local power station but had retired in the early 1990’s.  He later developed chest symptoms and ultimately, following our involvement, was diagnosed with minimal asbestosis. Fortunately this has very little impact on his day to day life or life expectancy – he is now in his late 70’s. However we were able to successfully negotiate settlement in the sum of £25,000.00 on his behalf.

If you believe you suffer from chest symptoms (pleural plaques, asbestosis or asthma) as a result of your employment, or have had a diagnosis made, we have the experience to guide and advise you in pursuing a claim. Please contact us for initial advice.
