Mr D, Shipwright Carpenter

Posted: 10th Apr 17 2:00 PM

Mr D was a retired shipwright carpenter who had worked for many years for Cammel Lairds. Mr D lived in Germany and was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma. He contacted the National Asbestos Helpline in the UK where his employment had taken place and we were able to conduct the case through email correspondence and telephone with the Claimant. We achieved an admission of breach of statutory duty from the Defendants without the need to issue proceedings and the case settled for a five figure sum following negotiations with the Defendants insurers.
