Estate awarded £160k in Mesothelioma Compensation Claim
Seth Lovis & Co Solicitors were contacted by Mr C to advise him on his recent diagnosis with Mesothelioma, an extremely rare and aggressive type of asbestos related cancer. John Jackiewicz, Partner and head of the industrial disease team at Seth Lovis & Co. was able to successfully pursue a claim for compensation against his former employers, Babcock & Wilcox Ltd.
Mr C had worked as a welder and spent much of his time either installing, maintaining or repairing boilers in power stations around the UK. Between 1967 and 1971, Mr C was regularly exposed to airborne asbestos dust without being provided with any respiratory protection nor was he given any warnings about the dangers of unprotected asbestos exposure by his employers.
Mr C had moved to Turkey with his wife and was worried that this may affect his case, however John was able to prove the clients exposure to asbestos in the UK.
From the client’s sudden diagnosis in September, his condition deteriorated extremely quickly and sadly, Mr C passed away in December. Mr C’s widow took on the claim on behalf of her husband’s estate. Due to the clients decreased life expectancy John was able to secure compensation in the sum of £160k, just 4 months after the initial instructions.
John Jackiewicz, partner and head of the industrial disease department at Seth Lovis & Co Solicitors in London said- “I was very pleased to have successfully settled Mr C’s case in such a short period of time. Unfortunately Mr C sadly passed away before we were able to settle his claim, however I am pleased that the compensation payment will go some way to securing his family’s financial future. Mr C was a very nice man and I’m pleased that justice has been done’’
