We represented the widow of a former power station worker who died aged 47 from mesothelioma, having been exposed to large amounts of asbestos whilst working across the UK for major engineering companies in the late 1960s and 1970s.
A compensation claim was made against the former employers of our client, Rolls Royce Industrial Power (India) Limited, NEI Clarke Chapman Limited and members of the Babcock Engineering Groups.
Compensation of £4.37 million was awarded, which is the highest award in an industrial disease/Fatal Accidents Act case to date. The award took into consideration our client's potential significant income, as he was an extremely gifted entrepreneur, having built up and sold several highly successful businesses.
