    Retired HGV Driver Appeals To Former Colleagues For Help After Mesothelioma Diagnosis

    “Asbestos dust and fibres can be extremely dangerous when inhaled or ingested and can cause a number of serious and sometimes fatal diseases, but all too often we see instances where employees were not given the correct information or protective equipment to prevent their exposure to the deadly material. “Due to the length of time between exposure to asbestos and the development of symptoms of mesothelioma victims often find the companies they worked for no longer exist. “In these cases victims have to rely on accessing compensation from insurance companies to help cover their care costs, as well as providing financial security for loved ones they will leave behind. This process can be extremely difficult when companies have been dissolved for long periods of time. “Sadly, this is the case for Roger. Although he worked for a family business he has been unable to find any details about the insurer involved and we are now appealing to his former colleagues for help in tracing the insurer to ensure Roger can access justice and help provide for his future.”

    Family Of Former Manchester City Council Worker Appeals To Former Colleagues After Asbestos Death

    “Roy and his family were devastated following the diagnosis of this debilitating disease and now his family are having to come to terms with their tragic loss. “We know that employers have known about the risk of using asbestos for many decades. The first asbestos regulations came into force in 1931. Sadly our work shows many did not do enough to protect workers from the harmful dust and fibres and too many people are now suffering from asbestos-related diseases decades later. “We hope that anyone who has any information regarding the working practices and presence of asbestos at either Heywood or Middleton incinerator sites during this period of time will come forward and help us with our enquiries as it could prove vital in obtaining justice for Roy’s family.”
