Our client was exposed to asbestos dust and fibres at the age of 20 while working as a weaver, operating 3 looms manufacturing carpets for W. & R.R. Adam Limited situated in Birmingham Road, Kidderminster. She was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma.
During her employment between 1968 and 1969 our client worked in the weaving section which housed the weaving, picking and maintenance departments in an open plan arrangement. The fabric of the premises and walls included asbestos, including pipes which were lagged with asbestos. Asbestos dust would be released from the walls and pipes which would contaminate our client’s workplace.
Our client was not provided with any respiratory protection and nor was she told of the dangers presented by asbestos materials.
Court proceedings were commenced against W. & R.R. Adam Limited in September 2010 under the court’s expedited process for mesothelioma cases and was successfully settled in favour of our client in April 2011 in the sum of £120,000.
When the claim was issued, W. & R.R. Adam Limited no longer existed, however their insurer was found and the company was reinstated for the purposes of litigation.
Our client’s settlement was achieved by Satinder Bains of Irwin Mitchell's specialist Asbestos Related Disease Team.
