I’m a personal injury solicitor in Irwin Mitchell’s Newcastle office, representing clients in a range of cases involving child abuse, sexual assault, asbestos-related disease and work-related injury.
The most rewarding part of my job is being able to make a difference in people’s lives. Most clients who come to us have experienced tragic events, often with harrowing consequences. I feel privileged to be able to play a part in their lives in assisting them to seek justice.
I like working as part of a large national organisation, whilst helping to seek justice for the individual.
“Unfortunately, we often see cases like George’s where victims were unaware they were battling asbestos related lung cancer until the very end of their lives.
“I urge George’s former colleagues who worked with him at any of his various employers to come forward with any details of the working conditions at the shipyards during George’s employment.
“Due to George’s role as a welder he often worked in the ships’ hulls in the boiler rooms, which are believed to have contained asbestos. Further, as part of George’s role he would be required to work inside of large pipes and tanks we were lagged in asbestos. Allison believes that her dad was never provided a protective mask or any other protective equipment.
“Anyone with information about working conditions at the shipyards in Newcastle, particularly anyone who may remember working with George, should contact us as soon as possible.”
“This case is like so many we have been involved in, with our client developing mesothelioma decades after his initial exposure to asbestos.
“We are undertaking a number of investigations in an effort to help Ronald gain both answers regarding his illness and vital financial support to assist him with care and treatment. As part of this, we are keen to know more about the working environment that he faced during his time at Newcastle Corporation Transport.
“Any information could prove vital so we would urge anyone who worked with Ronald to please get in touch as soon as possible.”
“Peritoneal mesothelioma is an extremely rare and very aggressive form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure and it can cause a great deal of pain and suffering for victims like Walter, who sadly paid the ultimate price for simply going to work and providing for his family.
"Walter's widow Jean has faced a difficult year since his tragic death and she is determined to get answers about his death. We are assisting her by investigating conditions at his former employer and we have now issued legal proceedings in the hope Jean will get the answers she wants.
“All too often we see cases like Walter’s where workers spent time working in dusty environments around asbestos and were not provided with protective equipment. It can take decades for symptoms to develop and often it is then too late for victims to recall how and where they were exposed."
“The dangers of asbestos have been known by employers for a long period of time but sadly all too often we see individuals who were exposed to asbestos at their workplace and have gone on to develop a range of serious, and in some cases, fatal, respiratory conditions.
“We are now investigating how and where John came into contact with asbestos and would like to hear from his former colleagues at Gilbert & Ash or those who worked with him at the abattoir on Whitehouse Road in Newcastle.
“Any information on the presence of asbestos in the working atmosphere, the protective measures in place to protect workers or the warnings provided to staff on the dangers of asbestos may be crucial in helping provide Liz with the answers she needs about how John developed this terrible disease which tragically took his life.”
